    Another native Texan here. My life is split between the Dallas area where I live now and the Athens area where we have our future homestead in the works.

    I am another native Texan - home place is midway of Dallas and Tyler, work in Dallas. Learning the homestead lifestyle and trying to package away tidbits of information to put into use after we move to our land (in same area).
    Glad of the roll call....

    Hercsmama,

    I know where Spring Branch is! I used to live there for a month...no job opporunities so I moved elsewhere. Right now, I'm in Austin. I tried to get into touch with Andrew3D but had two replies but he has never gotten back into touch with me. I wonder what happened. Actually I hate Austin bec I can't find a decent full time job..more part time jobs than full time jobs. Makes sense because the employers don't wanna pay health ins, and such.

    Property taxes? Not too bad actually..depends on where you live. My best friend pays $6k annually and he lives in Round Rock on 1/4 acre..another friend of mine lives in Jarrell about an hour from Austin and he pays $600 a year mainly because he has some exemptions on his 12.5 acre property and his sister pays $200 a year on the property next to his..same acreage size but just has extra fencing which is why she got the discount! It depends on how well you're able to pay taxes.

    Ted

    Born in Cut N' Shoot,Texas...Left there and went around the world a few times only to end up 18 miles away in Snuff Ridge. Texas is pretty great where ever you find yourself but I am getting tired of the cold rain....Glen

    first saw the post, was wondering if there was another person with the same user name 'texican'...

    ...between Carthage and Marshall, in the East Texas area...

    my only complaint about Texas is we have property taxes but no Income tax...so, a land poor peasant like me, gets to pay more in taxes than the doctor couple in town, who live in an apartment (and there's an income difference of 75x)
