In my short two days of being a member here, I have learned there are a lot of Texas folk on this board.  I would hate for them to miss out on fun times.  Also, it doesn't hurt to give a heads up for the non-Texan members.

The Texas crew is a tight crew. Driving from Texarkana to El Paso is half-way to California, yet that group seems tighter than freepers from any other State.

I honestly think it is a Texan thing.  My dad remarried and remained in TX while my mother moved us to CA.  To this day my sister resents hearing one of my stepsisters speak about our  dad (who was with Shamrock Oil Company) driving from Houston to Dumas to attend one of my stepsisters school functions... our mother, OTOH, most of the time could not be bothered to drive five minutes to attend something in CA... but daddy regularly made long treks across TX for family stuff.

Driving through Texas is awesome; I've driven through a few times, once when I was really little (down to Nuevo Laredo on our way to Mexico City) and then once cross-wise, West to East, and another from the North down to Austin and back when I was in undergrad.  The emptiness in some parts is absolutely beautiful.

I haven't had a chance to meet the Houston crew in person but I've met many of the Dallas area folks at Tea Party events. I am determined to make it to one of the shoots if my work schedule permits.

TheMom, that's just outstanding of you and all of your friends, and I'm glad you shared it with us.  I'd happily join you but I'm a good four day drive from Texas and I'm a bit busy at the moment, but I will lift a glass to the memory of El Roy....

Maybe it is a Texas thang, because we really are a tight crew.  Especially the Houston area group. Just yesterday there were 10 of us together at a fish fry ~ where I gained about 10 pounds!

Over the years, due to various political events & the TC shoots, I have met and stayed friends with a grunch of Texas freepers.

I know that El Roy is pleased that we have continued on with what he started.  Every year there has been nasty weather a day or two before the shoots, but the day of the shoots have always been beautiful.

I like the sound of this get together.  I spent some time in Texas and made some good friends.   One of these years I may just have to wander down that way and do some shooting.

I've seen the photos posted after past events, and it always looked like a lot of fun. The Houston bunch is more than welcome here!

Everyone is most welcome to join us.  You just can't beat hanging around with good people, good food and guns.   :laugh:
