Texas has 62 million acres of forest land. Nearly twice the forest land of Cali. Nearly as much forest as the entire state of Oregon.

No kidding? I may have to check that out. I actually haven't been. Many, many years ago, the kids went on the standard (read "cheap") tour. I was told that it wasn't that impressive. I'd love to go see an upgraded tour. I remember the photos that were posted of the VIP tour of the Kennedy Space Center. Those were very cool.

piss-ant forests in Texass are no match for Calif. or the PNW forests

disbelievers should inform themselves

Didn't say they were. Only that they aren't piss ant.

They point you missed was that Texas isn't just arid land and rattlesnakes.

We have plenty of that too! I saw my first scorpion in the greater Houston area!

And Swamps and Alligators.

And Mountains.

The only thing we don't have, waves for Surfing. If you want to, go to California or Hawaii.

RB not necessarily true. Spring time South Padre Island are sometimes 4-6 footers. Certainly not Hawaii but fun.

I hate scorpions. A couple of years ago I had one crawl up my leg and sting me while I was sitting on the couch.

All of the time I have spent camping, hunting, and hiking I have never seen a rattler. Once, while hiking, I heard one rattle so I jumped up on a granite boulder and after a few minutes I high stepped it out of the area.

While screaming like a little girl!

I have not seen a rattling danger noodle down here. I have seen a Coral Snek.

I worked for one of the GSE's and literally 1/3 of my team had moved to the Dallas area from California. They were all born and raised there and frankly had had it. They all love living in the Dallas area. I have very close friends in Southern California and go there fairly often to visit. I really like the state but it's got SERIOUS issues. The number of companies moving the DFW and Austin is staggering.
