  1. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    While fishing on the Angelina River near Jasper, Texas, I stopped at a camping site on the Angelina River to eat lunch. The site had various items of trash all over it - everything from broken glass to plastic bottles. These are remote camping sites only accessible by boat. So it's not like a...

    This is a rant about my camping trip on November 24 - 25 One of the major drawbacks to remote primitive camping sites, you never know what idiot you are going to end up next to. November 24, 2012 a buddy of mine and I headed out to the Angelina river close to Jasper Texas to do some camping...

    For around 14 years or so, a couple of my buddies and I have been talking about making a river trip from the northern part of the Sabine river, all the way to the Orange / Bridge city area. If everything goes according to plan, we will be making the trip sometime in 2012. The trip is...

    Something happened to the main power feed for my town, and then the backup power feed failed. Someone said it was related to the wildfire about 15 miles north of here, but I do not have any proof of that. The first thing I realized was that we do not have a radio here at work that works off...
  5. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    On Saturday June 18, 2011 the residents of Jasper Texas got the dreaded news, a wildfire has broken out in the Northern part of the county. Over the past couple of months Jasper county has been under a burn ban. But for some reason, people still continue to burn outdoors. A few weeks ago a...
  6. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    To the northern states this might not be a big deal, but here in Southeast Texas, we are not used to dealing with this kind of stuff. The overpasses around the Beaumont, Port Arthur and Orange areas are frozen over. Some of our bridges are closed - like the Veterans memorial bridge and the...

    It all started several months ago when I was telling my buddy about the undeveloped / primitive camping spots on the Angelina River here in Jasper Texas. Years ago we used to go camping along the bayous and marshes around Bridge City and Orangefield, Texas. But we have not done that in several...
  8. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    Friday evening my kids and I talked about if we wanted to go hunting Saturday morning and Saturday evening, or just Saturday evening. The agreement was made to go just Saturday evening – in part because we had a birthday party to go to at noon. Saturday morning rolls around, we sleep a...

    It was by sheer chance that I had the opportunity to see this caterpillar. For those of you that have never seen it, their about an inch long, maybe 1/2 an inch wide, and you do NOT want to touch this thing. Some of you may be saying, what is the big deal, its "just" a caterpillar. Well...
  11. Boating and Fishing
    It was one of those trips that I have been wanting to make for a long time. The day before (July 9, 2010) I took the time to get everything ready - the gas cans were fueled up, the poles and tackle boxes were set next to the front door, the day packs were filled with fresh water, first aid kit...

  13. Boating and Fishing
    Saturday morning my son and I got up, and took the boat to the Angelina River - which is just west of Jasper, Texas. At first we were using worms and top water baits, but after not catching hardly anything, we switched to pumpkin seed artificial worms in a Texas rig. This allowed us to get up...

    On July 9 - 10 my son, my son-in-law, a friend of the family and I went camping on the Angelina River, which is close to Jasper Texas. We left the camping site that morning, went to another swimming area which had a nice rope swing and then headed home. While heading up river, we spotted a...

    With the 2010 Hurricane season approaching, I wanted to take the time to remember Hurricane Ike. This video starts before Hurricane Ike makes landfall, and goes all the way to about 8 months later. Parts of the evacuation are shown, barricaded store fronts, the top of a pine tree on the roof...

    This morning my son and I headed down the Angelina River (which goes between Sam Rayburn and Steinhagen reservoirs). The Army Corp. of Engineers has designated primitive camping spots setup. If you put in at Bevel Port (Farm to Market Road 2799), and head south, you start running into the...

    On December 4th, 2009 East Texas received an early (and unexpected snowstorm). It was not really a “snowstorm”, as compared to what the northern states get, more like some snow flurries. But for East Texas, an area that rarely gets snow, it was more like a snow storm. In all, may 1/4 inch of...
