    Houston What to Pack

    It's hot. It rains. That's just Houston. There are two seasons: Summer and Spring. Spring is about January-April. After April, until December, it's hot. Make sure you bring plenty of sun screen. Let me repeat: It rains. Sometimes all day. Sometimes 5 minutes a day for 3 months. When it rains all day it floods-and fast. Be careful! I carry a small...

    Dallas What to Pack

    Although you can probably leave out your snow boots, I would suggest being prepared for almost any other kind of weather (especially in spring)! You can never tell what the weather is going to be like. One day it is a hot, dry, 95 degrees, and the next day is 70 and raining. I would definitely suggest being prepared for the rain. You will almost...

  • Water

    Texas is VERY hot and VERY dry during the summer. You should drink plenty of water to avoid Heatstroke. Read more about Heatstroke in my Warnings/Dangers section.

  • Pack for all weather

    Even in the summer months (or the whole year for that matter) it is good to pack some long sleeved shirts and pants. Mornings and evenings are often quite a bit cooler. And in the first couple months of the year, there is often cooler, rainy weather where a jacket or fleece is needed. Shoes are good then too.

  • Sunscreen is NOT Enough!

    If you are heading to the beach or plan to be outside anywhere in Texas during the summer time, sunscreen is not enough. If you are from a northern climate, even Baby Block 52 will not prevent a sunburn after a few hours on the beach. Be prepared and bring a hat, loose long sleeved shirt, and some cotton pants. Nothing ruins a vacation quicker...

    Any type will do just make sure it's expandable... Wear cool clothing, but bring a jacket and don't forget your dancing shoes! The weather in Texas changes real quick. We have an old saying in Texas 'If you don't like the weather stick around for 5 minutes, it'll change.' You have to bring a camera! There are a great many things to take pictures...

    My existing bag from Thailand decided to disintegrate on the 1st night in Texas, so I ended up with a suitcase on wheels, which was excellent mobility wise (this is a driving road trip type holiday) but I would have been better off with 2 smaller ones, it got really heavy & had to be lifted into the back of the truck way too often!!! I was there...

    Something waterproof. The weather here is very unpredicatable and you don't want your luggage soaking wet in an unexpected rain storm. If you are coming in the summer months which extend from May to September - bring light clothes. If you are coming in the winter, that is a bit harder to predict. Sometimes we have mild winters, sometimes they are...

    In warm months, dress in natural fibres so as to counter the at times unbearable humidity. Bring Chiggerrid if exploring the outdoors at all in warm months! If you thought mosquitoes were bad imagine microscopic bugs burrowing into your flesh. Joy. Texas in general, but particularly the Eastern part is an allergic timebomb to those with such...

    If you're going in Apirl, bring lots of shorts and some sandals. I recommend an umbrella. You can get film anywhere and they have lots of film developing places as well. Bring sunscreen and a hat for sure.

    Bring clothing for WARM weather as it will be Hot, Hot, Hot in the summer months (which is about 9 months of the year). Also, bring jeans (Wranglers are the preferred brand), boots, a western belt and of course a cowboy (or cowgirl) hat. This is a picture of a hayfield in west Texas. This is farm country and the cotton fields can go on as far as...

    Did someone say packing...some 'Heat' eh? Doesn't this picture give you the warm fuzzies? Remember there is a reason why they advertise 'DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS'.What kind of Texan would I be without my 44-Magnum strapped on my holster? I am working towards my carry license...I want my own gun first. Aside from going to the farm...Plano's Bullet Trap...

    Texas is a very large State and has many different climates. On the coast it is hot and humid; in the panhandle it is hot and windy; in West Texas it is hot and dry; in the.... OK, you got me. It's hot, all kinds of hot. It's a hot place dammit. Pack for heat. Here I am on South Padre Island in the Winter. It looks hot, doesn't it?
