Working out of town in TX

Postby nakedpreacher » Wed Oct 05, 2016 9:46 pm

I'm on a job in Granbury TX. Can you all in the Dallas/ Ft. Worth area recommend good family resorts in the area?

Jerry, I haven't visited any of them yet, but if you were to rank them, what would the order be? And aren't Bluebonnet and Wildwood within a few minutes of each other?

Never been to Granbury, but I hope you enjoy the time in our awesome state!

Thanks Maverick, I am, actually, enjoying it very much. We went through Texas when I was young, but I did not remember what a beautiful state it is. BTW what's with all the crickets. I should be here for at least another month. Looking forward to winter without a lot of snow.

I prefer Bluebonnet, second would be Wildwood then Armadillo. Bluebonnet is where my late wife and I had a membership for a year. Wildwood is where I have attended most of their 5ks since 2006, did the first skinnydip record attempt and a wedding. Only been to Armadillo twice, that I remember, both for 5ks.

Bluebonnet and Wildwood are about 3 miles apart on back roads, a little further on highway. Check their websites for discount on first visit, assuming they still have them. May also have student discounts.

Hmm. Where I live (Tarrant County), we don't have too many crickets--but I guess they're more abundant in less urban parts of the state. I was down near Glen Rose back in August and heard more crickets in one evening than I'd heard all summer.

We have a saying about Texas weather... if you don't like it, stick around because it'll change before you know it! In other words, it's weird! The last time my area got snow was March 2015--and that was after a winter without any snow!

Thanks Jerry, I definitely will. Growing up, I've been up and down US 287 more times than I can remember when going to visit my grandparents who lived in Wichita Falls. I never would've guessed there would be two naturist resorts along the way!

I remember visiting Austin a few years back and actually had crickets crawling on me during the night in my motel. :argh: I always wanted to use that smiley/emoji!

That's very like what we say in Colorado: "If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes." :D

Not to over argh you - but - are you sure those were crickets?

In my long ago year in Austin, I do not recall encountering crickets. But I had the fun of going out to the street light after dark and stomping roaches. Numerous roaches,

They look like crickets. They are definitely not roaches unless they are of a kind I have never seen before. In SC we have roaches and palmetto bugs and I finally figured out how to tell the difference, palmetto bugs are in ones own house, roaches are in other peoples house.
We also have Cicadas and they can be quite loud.

I remember driving through Oklahoma and Arkansas with the windows down, the noise was pervasive and constant. Everywhere! Never saw one intact but the windshield had a nice collection of parts. Amazingly, none every flew inside the car.
