    I grew up in East Texas, a small town called Winnsboro about an hour from Tyler. I have to agree Conroe is not East Texas, but welcome again.

    I live in Conroe, work in Huntsville and play music between 45 and 59 from Humble to as far north as Lufkin so far. I suppose just about everything is a suburb of Houston these days.

    Just doesn't feel right claiming the Gulf Coast when I can't smell the salt air and I'm surrounded by beautiful East Texas pine trees.

    Thanks again for the many warm welcomes fellas.

    Stay north of Houston, it is very pretty there. I went to school in Huntsville.

    I looked on the official Conroe's Convention and Vistor's Center website and they say "PLAN YOUR TRIP TO CONROE, TEXAS, a beautiful collision of nature, history, the arts and recreation all nestled in the Piney Woods of East Texas, just 40 minutes north of the heart of Houston."

    http://www.conroecvb.net/index.cfm

    From Wikipedia - Conroe is a suburban city 40 miles north of Houston in the gulf coastal plains/piney woods region of southeast Texas.

    Moving on to bourbon. What do you like so far? If you make in to Houston, I would suggest checking out Poison Girl Bar on Westheimer - great selection of bourbon. Occasionally, a few of us meet there for a drink.

    Grade school or College? I graduated from SHSU in 2002.

    I'm not sure I know enough to know what I like yet, but I can identify the things that I don't like. Mostly anything I drank in college, most of which came from the well. So far I would say I'm preferring wheated bourbons.

    Re: Howdy

    Welcome to another fellow Texan! I'm in Dallas, and aside from a 15 year hiatus up north in Michigan I've lived in Austin, Houston, College Station and now back in North Dallas.

    Calling Conroe "east texas" isn't much of a stretch, technically anywhere East of I45 with pine trees that's not on the coast is "East Texas."

    Hell - I've seen about two dozen small towns west & north of Dallas calling themselves "Hill Country!" Conroe's got more piney woods than salt-water, afterall!

    Hope you like where you live - some nice water/lakes there, pretty trees and lots to do without going all the way to Houston - but, when you do - hit Specs (downtown) - great store for finding cool stuff.
