While I'm not new to the forum, I've been away for a while due to the fact that I've recently relocated from Georgia to Texas (I'm loving the Republic!). I need help from my fellow Texans (or anyone familiar with the area). I'm looking for advice on the best places in the area (I'm in East Dallas) to:
1 if by land - go backpacking where there aren't sufficient trees to hammock camp but are great places for ground camping (hey, I need to practice using my new MLD Duomid tarptent for our Philmont trip with the Scouts anyway!).
2 if by sea (or any body of water) - go kayaking (both day trips and overnight trips)
3 if by air (off the ground...in the air...in a hammock) - go backpacking where there are sufficient trees to hammock camp!
I don't mind traveling to go to nice spots. So what do you recommend?
