    Moving to Texas

    So I got into graduate school at Texas State University and I am going to move to Texas from here in Michigan in about 2 weeks. I will be living in San Marcos Texas (between Austin and San Antonio). I was wondering if anyone could tell me some plants that will do outside in hot fairly humid weather from what I can tell. Also if anyone is into moutain biking and from Texas it would be great if you could tell me where some public trails are at.

    Back to packing.

    Thanks,
    Ktulu

    Congrats on getting into grad school! What’s your area of study, if I may ask?

    Is that hill country? It's definitely too far east to be in TX's mountains. And I mean mountains from the perspective of someone in the East. Of course, with you being from MI, even middle TX might seem pretty mountainous. Either way, expect to find a lot fewer people interested in mountain biking and other human-powered outdoor activities than where you're from. Being at a university, however, I'm sure you'll have no trouble finding like-minded people.

    Well I'm pretty new to the world of CPs, but I do know there is a place north of Houston that have CPs growing wild. Including temperate sundews, blaterworts, butterworts, and S. alta. I have never been but I'm hoping to go soon!

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks this gives me a good Idea of what will do well there. As for my area of study it is anthropology with an archaeology emphasis. I do not believe this would be considered hill country as it is flatter than where I am from in western Michigan. I think my single VFT should be happy there.

    Finch, although I agree with you the only reason I am going to Texas is to put it plainly they accepted me and offered me the best deal.

    That's flat.

    I think it's great that you're going to TX. I spent ~10 years in the South, mostly in Mississippi, and I think everyone should have the experience of living in different parts of the country. It was grad school that led me this direction too, since the first assistantship offer came from Maine. Prior to that, I'd have said somebody would have to drag me, kicking and screaming, to live in CT. That opinion was based on the experience of spending my senior year of high school in a CT suburb, but spending more time here has helped me see the good to go along with the bad.
