    It's official...Texas is "home".

    I am officially residing in Texas....New Braunfels, to be exact. We rolled into town yesterday afternoon, and we appreciate all of those who were praying for us during the transition. It's been a while since I've been on here, just due to the relocation events, but I thought I'd update those who care to be updated.

    As an afterthought- I saw a hand calc'd ~18.5 mpg on the trip down. That's driving an F350, crew cab, bulletproofed 6.0 Powerstroke, with a good sized load in the bed. Cruise set at 70 the entire trip.
    I serve Jesus exclusively...do you?

    I finally obtained a feedback post!

    Thank God you made it safely. I went back to see that you escaped from Oregon. Good move.

    Yes, we escaped indeed.

    One thing I quickly realized is that my non-cold air blowing a/c just got moved up on the to-do list. Haha!!

    Welcome to Texas! That is a beautiful part of the state. I find something beautiful about every part, except the big cities and the wind generators popping up everywhere.

    Celebrate by going to Omas Haus for some good German-Texas cooking.

    New Braunfels is near where my Parents over-wintered for many years, in D'Hanis. The Mountain Cedar pollen/allergy season is upon you, in that area. I would get quite sick when visiting my folks, til I'd take the allergy meds.
    Good Luck

    Welcome home, if you fled a State that has laws that made you leave, hope you left them all there in your travels.

    We fled Oregon, which is just a couple shakes behind CA in liberalism. I have no desire to participate with that kind of nonsense again, and there were no rubber bands attached to our ankles on exit.

    Welcome to Texas! I do wish there was a time machine, so you could see how New Braunfels was about 30 years ago, before it became so tourist'y, and Ommas food was still real!

    That's a nice facility and a good place to shoot. My cousin Walter shoots there regularly.

    Welcome friend. Your gonna love this state. I'm about 3 hours north from where you are at. My shooting buddy lives an hour from you. This is a nice place to live as long as you can deal with the summer heat.
