    Haha! Nice one Againstthewind-having been born and raised in Western Colorado (Grand Junction to be exact) I understand the sentiment. But then again, Colorado exports their "greenies," now days in more ways than just the green license plates, but yeah, I eventually found a lot about Texas I liked and made some life long friends out there.

    The beauty about Shiner is that while it is a full bodied lager, it's not too overbearing and is real refreshing on its own as well as goes good with about any kind of food. Sometimes goes down a little too smooth....on my fourth this afternoon

    BTW, my wife is from Casper and I am always looking for job opportunities up in wyo to move. Majestic country, relatively few people. LOVE Wyoming, even in January.

    Bring on the Lone Star and Pearl Beer. When I was in the service in Texas (San Antonio) we used to go to the LS Brewery and lift a few. Drank lots of Pearl too. My wife used to work at the Long Star Brewery Office so I got lots of beer brought home....bless her. I drank a LS a couple of weeks ago and it didn't taste as good as I remember, but it wasn't brewed in San Antonio as the brewery is now shut down.

    Easy on the Shiner Micro, lol. That sounds exactly like my type of beverage. We should time share houses, lol, I am not so fond of January in Wyoming sometimes, but I don't think I could handle July in AZ either. I tried to Snow bird in Portland, OR once, but I think I would rather deal with 30 below than the constant drizzle of rain it seemed like.

    There are quite a few "greenies" moving into this area. I should expand my horizons a little bit. I have been south of Denver (DIA is still Denver isn't it?) exactly two days in my life, well three if you count a 2 hr layover in NC, so I have no idea about that part of the world. I would love to see the gulf coast and some of cool landscapes around Grand Junction some day.

    Gulf coast is just covered in seaweed and suntanned hotties, nothing to see down here.

    And micro, I had a jalape˝o/cheese & a boudin kolache this morning....it shocked me that people had no idea what they were.

    Pmule; yeah, nothin' to see down there especially when the bull reds are in the surf and the specks are biting in the bays; just terrible! Although I have caught my fair share of wind and sargassum too. I can't believe I forgot to mention the coast as one of the things to miss about TX.

    Against; let me know if you get around to tryin' shiner bock. Curious to see what you think! Also, from the other post on careers-Micropterus is the latin name for the genus of black basses. So yeah, the largemouth are Micropterus salmoides and another example would be the Guadalupe bass or Micropterus treculii (the state fish of TX). If you end up gettin' into that teaching and have any questions or if I can help, don't hesitate to PM me and I will assist in any way I can!

    CC: Yep, nothing wrong with LS. I bet it was better at the brewery. What isn't always better fresh? Noticed you're outta Dolores. Doesn't get much prettier than that country! Used to work McPhee reservoir when I was working with the CDOW. Very cool place. Spent a lot of time fishing West Creek in Unaweep canyon with my grandpa. Real good turkey hunting around that part of the Unc too!

    BTW: thank you for your service!

    I try to avoid the surf & usually go out past the jetties at Sabine Pass. Could drag super flukes & sluggos Carolina-rigged across the tip of the jetties and pick up the bull reds...or just free line croaker or piggy perch on the big rigs and take a lot of the fun out of it. 30-50" bull reds on bass tackle ends up being pretty fun. Also found out that you could catch the specks fishing truck worms whacky style at the hot water discharges of the refineries.

    I never have caught a Guadalupe bass, probably because I've never fished where they were. My 4yrs spent living in San Antonio saw me fishing stock tanks stocked with Florida strain fish. Our local reservoirs are stocked with them too and can catch some after weeding through all the Kentuckies.
