I thought everyone in Texas enjoyed hunting. And there are, and most people have hunted at least once in their lives. But it seems that most people do not hunt regularly as a past time. They do go to the gun range and shoot though. I wonder is paint ball popular in Texas?

Texas seems to lack any real elite college football teams, especially when compared with the Oklahoma Sooners!

See ya'll at the the Red River Shootout in October!

I think of hot, dry wasteland (a strong word but that's what comes to mind)...even though I know that's mostly the western half of the state. I also think of muggy. When it comes to its cities the first thing I envision are cars and freeways and strip malls, whether that's fair or not. If I had to pick a color or couple of colors for Texas it'd be brown and green, in that order. I also think of those big cowboy hats, gun holsters and guns, and honestly, Matthew McConaughey.

Pedestrian unfriendly, very car-centric.

Wide varieties of terrain; mostly hot and dry.

Hmmm when I think of Texas I think I personally would absolutely love to move there.
Everything about it is cool.
The beautiful wide open spaces, (not to sound like that song, lol)
The lower cost of living, the booming economy,the abundance of jobs,
the amazing basketball teams (yay San Antonio!) .....
the very cool music scene in Austin, the lack of Winter, gosh I could go on & on
And...the sexy Texas men with the irresistibly Southern accent...

And I meet people from Texas all the time- just had someone over last night from Dallas who went to college there....
everyone I meet from there is so laid back & cool.
I love it

A land of extremes. Tropical in Houston, desert in the west. Cosmopolitan, affluent, larger than life, and proud in its cities.

I've never been but I first think of Houston, Austin, Dallas Cowboys, Mexicans, low COL, ranches, flat wide open land, bbq and big steaks, guns, executions.

Obviously there is much more to TX but these are what first come to mind-I would actually love to visit.
