The wife picked up a very old paperback of day trips around Texas. I'm willing to bet they still print something of the likes of it.


Not knowing what you have seen makes me reluctant to start naming off stuff.

I have not seen much. when i lived in cali i would just drive to vegas and back to get out of town. I have driven from Los angles to Atlanta 3 times but i never really stopped to smell the roses. i was sorta thinking of just driving north.

Just get on I10 and head west. Stop where you feel like it. San Antonio is fun, but still big cityish, keep truckin and the Kerville area is nice, hell even El Paso is out that way somewhere.

I tend to like the outdoors, but with the temps on the rise you may want to consider indoor destinations.

The Hill Country, the Davis Mountains are some of my favorite places. Once I'm out of Houston my moods change very quickly. Over the weekend I went up to a friends in Palestine before heading to Longview for Hushfest. The heat was the worse part of it.

Once I show you Greenwood gun club you will be burning gas to their on a regular basis.

Head west

I really enjoy taking a trip to Natural Bridge Caverns every few years (especially after a good rain has fallen)....Head toward San Antonio and follow the signs.

Wimberly is a cool little town, you would like it alot.

You can rent a little cabin there on the river or camp along the river, do a little fishing,

if you have a significant other with you, she will love the shopping at the little shops in town. Its one of the coolest little towns in Texas....there is also a shop there that sells custom holsters and belts so you can check it out if so inclined and give us a report [url]http://www.customleatherbykwa.com/[/URL]
