Hello.

Post by mereel Kestan » Sun Apr 15, 2018 6:56 pm

Hello everyone. Thanks for the add. I will be moving to Texas here in the next few weeks and just wanted to get a head start on the bushcraft angle. I am from Minnesota where it is currently 20 degrees with a foot of snow. It's been snowing for two days straight. Looking forward to living in Texas, and I look forward to some bushcraft in a new place.

San Antonio. My biggest worry is the weather. I don't do the heat well, but I lived in Missouri
for a while so I can probably tolerate it. I like the cold up here, I understand it, but I gotta move. Too many changes to what it used to be.

I've lived here in Texas my whole life and still hate the heat. I have to acclimate to it every year. Take a few months but by the end of summer I'm accustomed to it. That doesn't mean I don't pray for a cold winter. My "cold" is probably a little different than yours though. LOL The joke is Texans wear hoodies in the 60s and it's true.

Welcome to the south! Don't worry too much about the heat, there's always air conditioning if you overheat or need a break. Just think more water, less clothes, move slower and deliberately, and more activity between sunrise and noon than noon and 6.

Had an instructor once he was from Ohio, explained it like this, The difference in Up North and Texas. Up north you run from a warm house to a warm vehicle, in Texas you run from a cool house to a cool vehicle.
Will definitely take some getting used to, whole different environment. Invest in shorts and t shirts, coming from where you are, you will probably never be cold in SA. Also, it is a whole different type of heat than Missouri, we consider them Yankee's.
Welcome aboard, we try and have a get together at least once a quarter. Keep an eye on the upcoming events sub forum.
