Texas is just such a big state that my experience only living in Dallas doesn't make me qualified at all to know about what it is like to live in Houston, San Antonio, Austin, or any other small or mid size towns or metro areas. Even within DFW, experiences in various pockets are somewhat different.

Lakeview (church camp just outside of Palestine but I went to Elkhart Elementary School), Athens, Dallas, Arlington, Austin, Jarrell (in the country outside of Jarrell). Family farm in Henderson - didn't live there but spent lots of time there. Oh, forgot, born in Overton and lived in Jacksonville, then lived in Palestine a while before Lakeview.

I forgot that I lived in San Antonio when I was little! So - San Antonio, Jacksonville, Copperas Cove, Fort Hood, Whitehouse, Tyler, Kilgore, Longview, Chandler, and now Flint. Whitehouse, Chandler, and Flint are basically just suburbs of Tyler though.

Lubbock and Austin. If you can count spending so much time at relatives' homes that people from church know your name, then Abilene, Hereford, and Pampa too.
