Welcome to My Blog Trailer! Re-re-re-Grand Opening!

Guess where I am?

Dang straight. Sitting in MY house using MY very own internet. I haven’t had time to go buy the wireless router until today. Today with a pounding headache. Trav found Patron!


I’m back! Did you miss me? Since 98% of you would answer no to that lets skip to the next subject. This dang site. I swear. I wanted to change my blog name to Lord of the Blogs: Return of the Comment Whore but evidently that is too many letters. For those of you unsure about me, the title isn’t in reference to an extraordinary ego (although I have one) or me being an ass (which I’ve been both accused and guilty of) or because I am a comment whore (which I most certainly am… errrr not?) or other excuses to love to hate me but because I thought it was a funny play on words that didn’t work out so well. Not to worry those that worry about such useless, trivial mindless things, I’ll change it back in a few days.

Did I mention I am in my shorty shorts?

So as I have read through the responses finally of the last couple of posts I have come to a conclusion.

I don’t know who the hell half the people here are anymore.

That being said, you guys and gals probably don’t know who I am either. So I thought as a “re-grand opening” if you will, I would tell you a little bit about me. Call it blatant comment whoring but I assure you, I truly like to know the people that come by and where they are from. (While at the same time comment whoring!) So I would ask that you tell me a bit about yourself and where you are from in return.

My name is Travelingintexas… Trav for short. For those of you that couldn’t figure out how to punch a hole in a piece of paper in Florida, Trav isn’t my real name (Although I was in a conference call the other day with a guy named Trevor and one of his people called him Trev and I answered.)

I am an emotionally charged, over the top, largess loving, hope believing, walker of dreams. I cry hard, I play hard, I win hard and I lose harder. I am a romantic, blissfully so. I believe in the hope giving vision of a life worthy of living. My tombstone will read “Here lies Trav, He played the game of life and he played it freaking hard”

I bitch, I moan, I gripe, I cuss, I hope, I need, I want, I desire, I seek, I learn and I believe.

I am a Texan. I live in Cowtown, otherwise officially known as Fort Worth. I am proud of where I come from. I love the fact that everyone knows my states flag on sight, that the ground is sacred, that hard men and women fought and loved and died here and that the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well. I love the fact that being Texan means I walk with a swagger. And swagger I do. (I know, I know, some of you won’t get that but I am not the only one. See other Texan bloggers and check out the attitude.)

I am a big guy. I am 6’3 and 280 pounds. I dominate a room when I walk into it. My presence is felt and both women and men look. I ain’t Brad Pitt but I sure as hell ain’t hard on the eyes. I am a hard ass in the board room and a big old wuss when it comes to women.

I am an agent of change. I am a catalyst for what is new and unheard of. It is just my personality and I wouldn’t change it at all.

I believe in wearing shorty shorts, I have McManboobies, I love Caption Weekends and I smoke. Your point?

I have had a hell of a year. I won’t recount it here but I damn sure made it and I for damn sure ain’t going back again. I make mistakes. A ton of them. I can also admit to them because typically they are huge when I do make them.

I love to talk, I love to debate, I love to learn and I love to make others smile. However, I am not afraid of wading in and fighting when it is called for and the need is there. Or when some idiot is drunk at the club I am at and just needs a good ass whooping.

(Trav’s Bar Fighting Tip #801- Never posture, never talk. It’s a waste of time. Think Economy of Movement.)

You either love or hate me. This goes for real life as well. There is no in between. I know this because there is no in between for me. You’re either in or out in my view. I’ll trust you until you show me it isn’t warranted. I’ll give myself to you until I determine you’re unworthy.

I welcome you here. I hope you will stay around a while, check out the new tires on my new little blog trailer. I got it at a flea market just south of the border. For $10 bucks in Mexico you can buy anything these days. I believe in allowing others to speak their minds. Feel free to say whatever the hell you want here. I don’t care. I just ask you show basic respect to me and to those that comment here because I will always extend respect to you. If you can’t maintain the respect it’s cool. I can take mine off if need be.

So, ladies and gentlemen, let’s get this party started. I am home. It’s time to play. I’m game, are you? I have a ton of stories I want to tell. A ton of emotions I want to let loose. It is a new journey for me. Many of you have been faithful for the last year and have abided my self imposed pull back from the blogs here over the last few months

Life changes, things happen and we adjust. So saddle up…

We need beer! Who is bringing the beer?

Congrats on being back in YOUR home with Your stuff... I was new around here but the shine is now off. Yours was one of a few blogs recommended to me.

For beer -- well -- I have a half keg of home brewed India Pale Ale, will that do? (I'm not into commercially bottled beer)

Well darlin', don't know if it's love yet, but I definitely have an immense like for my fellow Texan. I'm definitely one of the people you don't know. I've just left a comment or two since I joined.

You are right about the swagger and as far as you being a big guy..well everything is bigger and better in Texas I'm looking forward to reading more of your blog.

As far as the beer, you want a keg right? Have you got the bbq going?

Yeah, Texans swagger a lot. But I'll tell you what. I've spent lots of time in New York and Boston. They don't swagger. They walk around with elbows in and pinched-up butts, and then they'll cut you off in traffic for no reason the first chance they get. It's just amazing what carry permits can do for civility in public.

Always love it when you number pops up in my watch list, you big pussycat! Keep it coming!

(Although I was in a conference call the other day with a guy named Trevor and one of his people called him Trev and I answered.)

Uh...conference call? Uh huh.

I'd amend this lengthy disseration to say "...people either love me or don't know what the heck to make of me." That sounds more realistic. Except for emu and frog (turtle?) handlers. Might have a point there.

    Quick question...

    How does one make Home brewed India beer if they arent in India? Isnt that cheating somehow? LOL

    You answer that for me while I run and check on the hot blonde taking a bubble bath in my big bath tub....

    This may take a while so no rush
Its a style of beer and based on the mix of hops, barley, and other ingredients, you can make just about any beer your lil' heart desires.

Have fun with your blond & the bubble bath and do take your time!

    Still gotta get that stupid ball back. Ive been lazy. Ill do it this way for now.

    I prefer the word luster to lack of shine

    So your a fellow antimisagi-beer-erator? Just saying it made me tired!

Yeah...when I *must* drink beer, I want a proper brew, dammit. Otherwise just pour a double of Irish whiskey for me. I like lustre. Good word.

I thought the 'swagger' had to do with "Texas: where men are MEN...and women are damn glad of it!" I agree with that...and it has nothing to do with the fact that I was raised in Texas {or maybe it has everything to do with it? } "I am a hard ass in the board room and a big old wuss when it comes to women."; point? That's all real Texan men!

What is Caption Weekend?

Raised all over the S.E. U.S.; mostly TX and GA...right now in ala-f'n-bama...and they don't know what to make of the accent {mostly Texan with some Georgian} or the attitude...like I care!

Now, on to the 'comment whore' thang...now, babe...tsk! Where is your Texan PRIDE...be the overachieving wanker that only a true Texan can be! Comment whore, comment wanker, comment slut...damn, forgot some more, I'll have to check my old notes {having automatically done all this lately...but I have lost track of how many bjs I owe some of these guys}. Now I have to head back to my own little ranch here, and post something about male masturbation or something. See ya 'round.

Hi Trav! I've been lurking for a while now, but since you wrote such an informative post this time I had to comment!

I'm glad that you are finally in your own place now, with all of your own stuff! I loved watching you while you were shopping for all of your stuff!

I'm from one of those little tiny states WAY up north--Vermont!
We are a very friendly place--we rely on tourism to survive up here--colorful trees in the fall, skiing in the winter and maple syrup--and beer all year 'round to even things out. Lots of small breweries and even a few vineyards for the wine, lots of Macintosh apples and the home of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream and that band--Hootie and the Blowfish! Unlike Bostonians and New Yorkers we won't run you off the road up here --hell, our Interstate only has two lanes in and two lanes out!

How about if I send you a couple of kegs of our local beer blog style? Long Trail Ale and Catamount Beer--just don't drink it all at once--it's damn hard getting that beer our over cable lines to send you--about gave my modem and router a heart attack when it saw that heading out! LOL

Here's to reading more of your blogs!

First, I say have a house warming party here on the blogs! That way EVERY friend of yours from Blogland can make it...

Second, I have beer. If ou need Emu, there is a farm down the road I can get one for ya after dark.. LOL You will have to butcher it though...

Trav, I love this post. I really do. It tells just who you are and I love ya! How can anyone hate you?

I am happy you are HOME....
I look forward to more of your blogs
I look forward to more you!

Welcome back and welcome home ~

Just wandering the blogged corridors, I'm thinking someone forgot to clean up the after party remains (ew) anyhow I'll whore my opinion to you whether or not you like it but I find more thoughtful and intelligent responses than I see from web camming, chatting or emailing so I'm guessing this is where I'm gonna spend my time. Might I add Texas is nto my favourite place n the world but I have 3 ex's from texas.
Anyhow I look forward to further insight and inspiration
Ciao for now

Did I mention i only like pussy beer......
ie smirnoff, mike's etc
If I'm gonna drink I'm gonna do it right...jack, tarantula, captain morgan etc etc....

Hell is when u should have walked away, but u didn't.
