BTW, I wanted to remind everyone near San Antonio and Austin that Sam Coffman (episodes 570 and 1228) of The Human Path (http://www.thehumanpath.com/) is located just up on Hwy 281 just north of San Antonio.

One of the neat meetups they do is a monthly Barter group. The next one is in a couple weeks and you can find more information at https://www.facebook.com/thehumanpathbarterexperiment.

Thanks for the reminder!

After this week in Wisconsin of -15 F temps, Wife told me "You should visit Texas to see what the culture is like."
Sounds like I might be able to move to Texas...

Current job is will allow me to transfer to the office in Richardson, TX (75081).
Anyone know the area near Richardson?

Richardson is in the shadow of DFW.  Five hours from me, but I have an acquaintance that lives there.  She is moving to my area soon to get away from the city which is how I met her.  No matter where you move in Texas, it is a better place to live than any other state!!!  Of course, I could be a little biased.

Hootie - I've got a house in Richardson I'll be putting on the market soon - moving out the first week of June. Its in the area of Belt Line Rd and Jupiter. I'm not sure what you will eventually be in the market for but its a nice 3 bedroom, 2 bath with a pool and a 2 car garage. Its just minutes from TI and the tech corridor and in the same zip code you listed for your office down here.

We've lived here for 12 years. Sorry I saw the thread so late in the game but if you have any questions about the area send me a PM and I can give you my email or cell phone. I'm off work the next few days if you want to talk. I might even be able to meet with you while you are in town.

If I were reading this in the summer I'd either laugh or get angry.  ;D

How is the govoner race looking? I understand Abbot is the favorite. Are there any candidates to get behind? The LP doesnt look remotely serious to me.

I'm officially moving to Texas on March 10th.  I'll be in the Fort Worth area if anyone wants to get together, or if anyone has a room for rent within 20 minutes of downtown shoot me a PM please.

Welcome to Texas, Absit!  It is a great place to be.  There are lots and lots of preppers in the DFW area.  You will have lots of company.

Been sending emails and PMs out all morning to everyone I can identify of being in or near Dallas. We just moved to Plano - my husband, myself and our 17 year old son. Being new to the area and having been prepping a long time I know we need to build a network of friends in case TSHTF but also to share the good times with. So please, don't ignore the email or PM I sent you. If I missed you, message me or email me. It's always more fun doing tasks with others. We can learn from each other, split costs, discuss happenings, have fun, etc. I'm willing to share my knowledge and experience and hoping to find others who have knowledge and skills I don't have.

I follow the philosophy of being prepared if times get tough or even if they don't. I look forward to meeting many new friends.

Thanks,
Debra

Don't know if I ever posted in this thread or not, so....  I'm up near Lake Texoma. Hope everyone does well on Sept 1. For anyone that doesn't know, that's opening day of dove season.  ;D We haven't been seeing many birds around this area, so hopefully they'll show up.
