My father is from Houston County, so not quite so deep into East Texas. He used to sing that song around us frequently, and he had several Tex Ritter albums he used to play when we were growing up.

Anybody knows that phrase, it's a pretty strong indicator they are from or got roots in East Texas.

Panola County, Carthage is the county seat. Delivered propane all over that county for seven years. Not many places there I haven't been to at least once.

My g'parents have been gone for a long time but if you're familiar with Gary their house was on the corner where you turn to go down to the old school. The Gary City Water well is at what was the back of their home place (they donated the land). LOL

IIRC Possum Trot's over around Round Rock, seems like I saw a sign during a MC Rally awhile back. Choice, TX., can't say I've heard of.

Great camp y'all have, Setxfireman, thanks for sharing pics of it. That much acreage should give you a good buffer zone around the place for peace and quiet and to give you some good hunting.

If you want to plant wildlife foods, native persimmon seed germinates very easily. You can probably still gather the fruit now, clean the seeds and plant them in pots set out on your porch over the winter. In late spring or early summer, they'll sprout and grow quickly. Same with any native plum. Various hawthornes are also good for wildlife, the parsley hawthorne is particularly nice for birds and the mayhaw is good for everything, including people. All of the hawthorns sprout readily from seed.

Your citrus should do very well. I'm north of you and I have quite a few trees of various kinds.

I love this thread and most threads with pics of people's BOL's, homesteads, camps etc.
And land is most valuable and not getting any cheaper. I thought I had a good deal for being able to find and buy 3 and 1/2 acres with many trees and good water for $8,000 which is some are trying to get $10,000 and more per acre today. I have read even one Million dollars per acre such as in Vail and Aspen, CO.

That old travel trailer in the middle of nowhere will look like heaven to someone trapped in a metro area while the natives loot and burn everything.

All you`ll hear is crickets....
Not sure how old the trailer is but it looks good to me. And if it is comfortable and able to live in it then it is better than most. I had a small trailer I got for only $350 and had a cover over it but it still got crushed by snowpack. As I have seen at least 3 trailers etc. get crushed and two cabins also.

I would look at some kind of root cellar camo in to the land scape. Great place to hid all kinds of things until you need the free cool storage.

Out along the perimeter plant stuff game animals like. Perhaps add some quail or birds that can fend for themselves.
Root / storm shelter - cellars are great and a necessity from all that I have read and even done since 1982. A root cellar can be called a storage - storm shelter and could save you and your families life someday from a tornado or such. I am sure your area as well as many areas in the USA have the potential for tornadoes? And a root cellar / storm shelter does Not have to cost much as I have posted in quite a few threads. Hope people can find those threads and If not then send me a message and I will gladly tell where to get info.

And I am sure even on survival forums, that too many think they Must spend lot of dollars to have a homestead, a cabin, a bunker - root cellar or whatever. I for one, know from much experience that is not true. Even if - when I inherit much hopefully within a year or less I am not going to spend too much. Maybe $10,000 or so on a newer, bigger, more powerful pickup truck but not too much on a cabin etc. etc.
So much I could tell about but I just hope that many are not simply dreaming about what they would do IF they win the lotto or whatever.... And just Do it such as is shown in this pic thread and many others on the net.

My cousin (and his father) were both born in Houston County; his mother was born in Panola County; his grandmother mother was a Ritter from Panola County and a cousin of Tex.
