It has been mentioned by at least one other LJ that since there seem to be more than a few of us here in Texas, particularly coastal Texas, that a Texas LJs get together might be a good idea. And since I am sure it is more than just me that has lots of scrap hardwood, partcularly pecan and mesquite bits and pieces, that maybe we can do a good old fashioned Texas BBQ… LOML and I are looking for an excuse to head out somewhere like Lake Texana anyway….

I make a mean Brisket, and LOML makes the best Fajitas…

No bunk house, but I have no fewer than 10 tents. (Range from a Eureka Solitaire, basically an overglorified Bivy Sack, to a Swiss Gear 10×20 3 room tent with a 6’ 5” center height.)

What furniture show?

How about New Braunfels during Wurstfest? Wait, might not be a good idea, beer, sausages, and power tools. Bad plan…

You pay air fare from Alaska? ........’spose I could mush on down…..or hook a ride with a migrating trumpeter swan…......

Oh well, guess its that ol’ salmon, halibut, moose, and caribou as usual…...wish I could get some of that there barbecue…...Sherie my wife is a Texas gal, maybe have to see what she could do with some bear brisket, as long as its not a salmon bear, maybe not too bad…....hmmmmmmm

Air fare is a little rich for my blood. How much is a bus ticket?

Greyhound Bus Lines, not just transportation, it’s an adventure!

Thanks for the offer, but I think we’ll stay home and bite the…....bear. Air travel dominates in Alaska for a good reason, driving anywhere takes so long all you have time for is to turn around and go back home…...........think of me while you are eating brisket and fajitas (-:

Let me know where and when. I’ve got some wood scraps also. By the way, furniture show in Kerrville has a lot of really nice pieces exhibited this years as always.

I’m on the south side of Houston and would like to attend. My schedule is a little crazy with two young kids, so I will leave the planning to someone else. Thanks for the interest, and I look forward to the outcome.

I am one of the Texas coasties…When I ain’t makin’ sawdust or traveling for my job, I am fishin’!
Derrek…I live in Angleton. I make trips to Houston Hardwoods or Charlie’s, depending on what part of H-town I’m in. If I am around, I would definitely like to meet some fellow termites.

I found out about this site from They have a woodworkers page on their site also, but most of it is duck calls, bottle stoppers, pens, and some really beautiful hollowed out work. It is a great site and good people…just like here…Vic

This sounds like a great group. I’m always ready for BBQ. I just took 4 chicken out of the smoker. Been smoking since 4:00 pm so 6:30 hours smoking.

Cherry and maple wood smoke. It’s 1030 PM and the family just finished off one chicken.

Depending where it is to be – the coast isn’t more than about 4-5 hours from Waxahachie.
