I'm here, from east Tx.

State or country? From the way things are going, I think we may end up part of Mexico again....

Being the ONLY state that preserved the right to secede at our will, then we can do as we see fit I do believe.

Both of you are lucky buggers as that is some lovely country over there. I had an option on 120 acres by Lake of the Pines but gave it up when girlfriend and I had a falling out.
Lost a few bucks but what the hey--life works that way at times and no way would I ever move to Fla to passify her--not even.

Hello everyone! I'm in Houston. :-/ It's my yob, man. Looking to retire in a few years and I don't think I want to retire in Houston. Still trying to decide where and I'm pretty sure I want it to be in Texas. I can't handle that seriously cold weather anymore.

What about the Copperhead snakes? Any problems with them? When my kids were in the boy scouts I used to take them to a scout camp neat Carthage TX. The camp had a policy of "if you see a copperhead snake you kill it". For a scout camp I thought this was rather a harsh policy. Until we went treking into the brush and woods, that is. The copperheads were everywhere, man. Sigh.

I grew up in Abilene, TX which is in the beginning area of west Texas and we kids were always on the lookout for rattlesnakes and scorpions when out in the country, so I guess a few copperheads shouldn't be a problem.
