Sounds a bit like East Texas. I mostly do West Texas now. I liked Van Horne, nothing there but cactus an me, but that was about 15 years ago the place might have grown (or died) by now. I was 20 miles East of town.
Spent too much time around the piney woods of East Texas, nice place but most of my friends down there died off now. Construction and auto accidents got most of them.
Not much on jumping out of trees into blades anymore myself, kinda same reason I got out of construction years ago, tired of too high places with too small areas to stand or walk.
Does San Antonio still have a river down the middle and all the clubs down there still.
Best Mexican food I ever ate was in a little restaruant on a tiny side street there.
I did allot of eating and drinking in that town for awhile. Mostly eating, not a very busy place but the food was great, best restaraunt in town back then.
Course the Beaches were nice around Galvaston and Corpis Christie and down by the border was really good food in Brownsville too. Used to buy Teddy Bears in Houston, was a ton of good wholesale warehouses on Harwin Street for about anything else.
Texas, been there done that
Great place to live, has almost everything, not enough snow.
