Well welcome to Texas. I think it may take you a while to get used to the lack of rain and humidity.

So was I!....spent 3 years there. The country has an austere beauty to it. Didn't think much of the towns. When you get a chance spend some time in Ruidoso and Lincoln County. If your outdoorsy you'll have a good time during your tour. And get used to the feed-lot smell. Related video:

That's nice out there Rick! My Dad and I took one of our cross country trips out that way, because I wanted to see where Billy the Kid did all his damage. Drove through Lincoln County, and visited the Courthouse where Billy escaped and shot a few. That must have been a great time in the late 1880's.
