  1. Coronavirus
    Southeast Texas lakes area is packed with boats, camper trailers, RVs, jet skies.. everything under the sun. Just about every truck has something being pulled behind it. Public boat launch at Lake Sam Rayburn was packed all the way out to the road - this was probably close to 100 trucks. I am...
  2. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    Buster and I were on a nature walk along a local creek when I walked up on a Cottonmouth. Luckily, Buster did not see the snake and it was able to get into a clump of leaves. If Buster had seen the snake, I had a walking stick to put between the two. I have heard people say the Cottonmouth...
  3. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    Here in southeast Texas we have about 2 weeks until bow season starts, and about 7 weeks until rifle season starts. Over the past few weeks my wife and I have been going to the lease to spread beans and oats, and to check on the feeders. My family and I have 4 feeders and 5 stands setup. One...
  4. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    How much room do chickens need on the roost / perches? Over the weekend my wife and I finished up the second half of the chicken coop. After installing a vent window, I realized that the 2x4 board nearest the window is too high. My wife and I are going to take the side of the coop off (the...

    I have made the mistake of implying to my wife that I want to move to Texas at some point:eek:. Now shes gone off the deep end and started talking to real estate people in Texas and looking at houses on the internet. Well, now that Ive stuck my foot in my mouth, where would be some good...
  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...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    This post is mainly for any of y'all who live in East or South Texas. How long do you think it will take us to adjust without AC if something ever happened? I recently was without power for 2 days. I could have stayed with a friend or family member, but no big deal, I just toughed it out. I...

  11. Firearms General Discussion
    Well, went to a small gun show today in SE Texas, comparing today's event with the past performance and turnout of this event, let's just say I was really impressed.
