You ask me what I like about Texas? I tell you it's the wide open spaces! It's everything between the Sabine and the Rio Grande. It's the Llano Estacado, It's the Brazos and the Colorado; It’s the Spirit of the people down here who share this land! It's another burrito, It's a cold Lone Star in my hand It's a quarter for the jukebox, boys, Play some Sons of the Mother Lovin’ Bunkhouse Band! You ask me what I like about Texas It's the big timber round Nacadoches It's driving El Camino Real into San Antone It's the Riverwalk and Mi Tierra Dancing to the Cotton-eyed Joe It's stories of the Menger Hotel and the Alamo! Hey, you ask me what I like about Texas It's Blue Bonnets and Indian paint brushes Swimming in the sacred waters of Barton Springs It's body surfing on the Frio It's Saturday night in Del Rio! Driving across the border for some cultural exchange! It's another burrito, It's a cold Lone Star in my hand! It's a quarter for the jukebox, boys, Play some Sons of the Mother Lovin’ Bunkhouse Band! Yee-Hoo! That's what I like about Texas! Yehaw!

I have lived in New Mexico almost all of my life. I lived in the Panhandle of TX for about 1 1/2 yr. Most of my family lives in TX so I've visited there quite a bit. That said, I've got to agree that Texas is a great state. They just have a different attitude. They have a great sense of law and order and a great cultural heritage. Too bad they don't have any mountains. Texas is one of the few states that I would consider moving to.

Being as most of Texas is either relatively flat and scrubby or swampy, I'm curious what kind of offroading there is. Based purely on my casual observations, Texas didn't appear to be much of an offroader's paradise. For a very small access fee, here in Washington I can offroad on countless miles of roads and trails in state and national forests and not have to hassle with private land owners. I don't have to worry about my house getting swept away in a toronado, either. [;)]

I was more referring to MX bikes because thats what I like to do. However, the same implies for 4-wheelers and 4x4s. Just next to my home is a abundance of steep grades and trails. This is TX, not central IL. BTW the plug also gives some insite into the people, not just the terrain.

For the most part, the pizza still sucks. That's why the pizza places put all them toppings on there - it has no tast otherwise.

Cool, I'm into offroad motorcycles, too. True, Texas may not be central Illinois, but when compared to truly mountainous states, it's still awefully flat and boring. I prefer to do my riding on steep, boulder strewn goat trails that wind through dense, green forests. As far as the people, don't delude yourself into thinking that Texas has some lock on friendliness or that everyone in Texas is a great person. I met a lot of great, laid back folks while I was there. But racism is much more ingrained, prevalent, and tolerated than what I am accustomed to. Texas is still the only place where I was specifically warned against going into a certain part of town after dark because of my white skin color and my employer required that on duty crews take a much longer route to avoid that part of town.

Sounds like some mighty fine advice you were given stranger! Mighty fine employer you got there too, looking out after his employees and all! [b]Boomer[/b], you've got to be kidding! With all due respect, there's not a large city with a population over 100,000 that you can go to in this country and not get the same, precise warning! Do you think there is? Which city, then? San Francisco? Hmmmm, don't you dare let the sun set on yo' white ass in Oakland, boy! I remember getting that advice! Los Angeles? Heh-heh-heh-heh, you simply must stop pulling my leg, son! Have you ever heard of the intersection of Florence and Normandie, in South Central LA? I'll bet Reginald Denny's employer directs his employees around that neighborhood, if possible!

This was in Temple, Texas, arguably NOT a very big city. I never said it was the [i][b]ONLY[/b][/i] place where one might receive such a warning, I said it was the only place that [i][b]I[/b][/i] had ever received such an explicit warning. And yes, I have gotten out plenty, thank you very much. But Temple, Texas, is still the [b]ONLY[/b] place where I have been given such a specific, explicit warning by virtually every native I met. But it must be a great source of pride for your beloved Texas to share such a common bond with Oakland, Los Angeles, New York, etc., right? [:)]
