The blog begins...

Posted on March 15th, 2009

I recently wrote more than 200,000 words in my Moon Texas guidebook about traveling in Texas. How could I possibly have anything more to say in a regularly updated blog? Simple. Texas is
gi-normous. I only managed to cover a few thousand sites in the book - that leaves me with at least 25,000 more restaurants, hotels, and attractions to discover and blog about.

Actually, I plan to use this space to focus on family-oriented destinations in Austin and within a day's drive of Capital City. Besides, I've needed an excuse to sample the dozens of amazing barbecue joints and small-town cafe pies that beckon to me from Central Texas communities.
I also want to check out the nearby swimming holes and let our kids review the playgrounds at state parks.

Check back here occasionally for my write-ups and photos of these Lone Star locales. I'll be sure to let you know if the pork ribs and playscapes are worth the drive.

Nice looking site, Andy, and congratulations on the book.

I'm thinking the photo of you, mouth open, about to snarf a bite of rib was inspired by a most memorable trip to Fla in the late 80's. ?
