I've lived, worked or attended school all over The Great State of Texas. Showed no partiality, went to both A&M and UT for different reasons of course... There isn't a spot I couldn't learn to love even if they are inhabited by scorpions which would have to be the only creature I haven't been able to come to terms with and will kill on sight. My three favorite places though are Dublin, Atlanta and Medina.Lost Maples though, Tx Hill Country, San Antonio, Austin, Mustang Island... I love Dallas and Bryan more so than College Station but there really are great areas to live in College Station.

I had another reason ...oh, rain, rain go away.... Supposedly we have officially received enough rain to equal that of the rain forest and resumed our place as number 1 for rainfall in the US. Anyone have any ideas on how to keep feet dry and hooves from rotting off in the rain forest? No barn, horse wouldn't stay in one even if I had one. She tore DH's experimental one to pieces. I am pouring on the coppertox but still there is separation between the heel and frog.
DB I had something to share that a friend shared with me and now I have to find it for you. Your daughters will get past the fear because of who you are and what you stand for. You are an exemplary role model. They will be stronger women for it.

Haha we have scorpions here also my dad used to have a jar full of them I think it was alcohol he had them in. I am still scared of them and am not ashamed to hide and/or kill them if possible.

I have found several nice looking places for good price ( at least to me coming from cali haha) in bryan. Several that have said they are close or have transport to A&M. Dallas is a choice because I know a couple people there who can help me figure out where everything is and such haha. Plus I've heard lots of good things about dallas.

My husband is so anti scorpion, he can literally hear them falling into his bed from the ceiling at night. LOL! I kid you not. I thought he had lost his mind one night at 3am as he rips me out of a dead sleep tearing sheets and covers about. He swore he "heard" a scorpion fall from the ceiling into the covers. I was getting ready to call the crazy house when I saw the dang scorpion in our bed. I couldn't believe it. Needless to say, he does NOT handle scorpions well. LOL!

BRA, I grew up in Marble Falls, smack dab in the middle of the Texas hill country, have lived in Seguin outside of San Antonio, Bastrop outside of Austin, have family in Midland, went to college at UNT in Denton, and got engaged in the "mountains" of Ft.Davis. I have die hard Aggie friends. I now live in the flatness of Trenton between Dallas and Sherman. Honestly I love every area I have ever lived in or been to. Texas is such a hodge podge of landscapes and places to live. I guess that's why I'm so in love with this state. It's hard to tell you one place is better than another. I'm even in love with west TX where there's literally nothing and you can see into tomorrow. Just make it to Texas. Can't go wrong. ;) Of course I'm very partial to the Dallas area since I've spent most of my adult life here. Good luck with your move! :)

If a scorpion fell into my bed, I'd be in a hotel within the hour.

I'm partial to Dallas, as you are within driving distance from nearly anything you could ever want: city bustle, country quiet, shopping, restaurants, museums, bars/clubs, live music, Pro-sports teams, fresh local food markets, high society, indie chill, jobs, schools, the Texas State Fair....and one of the nation's largest airports if you want to get anywhere else in the world.

My mom sounds just like your husband she absolutely freaks. She jumped into the tub with me when I was little because she saw one haha. Im more inclined to haul but to the nearest heavey object lol.

I have definitely set my plan in motion I am saving for the move and have been looking around and pricing out apartments. The only thing I am worried about is my dogs. I have a 6 mo old australian cattle dog and a 4 yr old doberman, the dobe might be my issue. I can leave her with my mom I just dont want to shes been my wing pup since I started high school and she gives me the saddest look when I leave for even a couple days haha.

TG, we figured you were with the transition and all.........no rush - we will keep your coffee warm for you!

BA, I live in CS - it drives me nuts - but only during football season. When we get invaded by zillions of maroon morons. I grew up here - born and raised. But don't take my opinion - come on down and make one for yourself! There are a few places to keep horses around here - western mostly, english harder to find and a bit more pricey. Not much for horse shows tho or any 'group' type gatherings with horses for adults - everything revolves around TAMU and football here. I would recommend that if you DO come this way, take the time to find a barn/area that has people you could get along with/get to know. I live on the south side - the only area in CS where horse people are. Most are western show types - not many barrel racers or playday folk here unless you're in 4H.

There is this one crazy endurance rider who has been seen a time or two - she usually rides in brightly colored endurance tack on a smoky palomino or a bay arab, rides in Nikes and half chaps, often seen in neon tank tops and wears cheap sunglasses. She is a hoot and knows every back road, pond and secret trail to get down to the river on this side of town between here and Millican. Wave at her if you see her - she will wave back!

Clippityclop is finally getting to spend some time in the saddle!

CC- thats good to know. Itll probably be awhile till I can afford to get back into riding and I'd prefer to barrel race but I love trail riding as well. It does play a role in where I choose to go but I guess Ill just have to see haha. It'll take me a couple months to save up enough to make it out there with gas, deposit, rent, food etc haha so I'm looking at hopefully by january or sooner I'll have enough saved up as long as nothing goes wrong haha.

Ugh, scorpions. I can't stand them. I'm with you Cyn, if a scorpion fell into my bed in the middle of the night, I'd be outta there within minutes .

Anyways, I've only ever lived in the Dallas area, and I haven't done much traveling to other parts of Texas, so I'm of no help.
