No they didn’t teach us that. I had to learn that on my own🙂

Welcome! We live in Portland which is a little east of Sinton. Can answer questions about the area for the most part. Wife grew up here.

Welcome to paradise! May I recommend Portland or Calallen for your housing needs. Great places to start your housing search. If you want to do some fishing and duck hunting give me a shout when you get settled in.

If adding a few pinto beans to your chili makes it soup then your chili sucked in the first place!

Sounds as if you will be allowed to enter, welcome to Texas, especially our little piece of it. Lots of industrial growth in the Corpus Christi area. Also, lots of small communities around within 20 miles or so if a short commute is ok. I live in about the smallest little town around and I have been commuting 31 miles to Corpus Christi for over 32 years now. We do get a pretty big blow every now and then, although the last two big ones was like 37 years apart. Although Harvey in 2017 was a dousey, no big deal. Best of luck with the steel plant transfer!........cC

Texas chili or chiie con carne does not have beans, PERIOD. TERLINGUA....no beans. The San Antonio chili queens, no beans. It can certainly be put on hot dogs. Beans are a side dish. Name one mexican restaurant that puts the beans in the chile con carne on the cheese enchiladas.

Coming from way up there you’re probably used to big bodied animals with smaller racks.
This is the land if big racks and smaller bodies, and the deer ain’t bad either.

I don’t really want to mention my companies name by name just in case I post something they don’t like. But it still being built and the only one in that town. They will be needing several people pretty soon. I think this will be great for the area but from when I first looked down there at housing it was a lot less expensive. Now it is pretty high. “My dream” scenario would to find a small house in the country out in the middle of no where with a 30 minute or so drive.

Around 30 mins will put you anywhere from Calallen to Refugio from Sinton. We live in Portland. Our property taxes have to be about the highest in San Patricio Co. Land prices are fairly high due to most of it being row crop land.

Another thing you need to know! All this chili with/without beans talk is just to distract you from knowing that you need to start snacking on jalapeños now to condition yourself for some of the most finest breakfast in the entire world, the taco truck breakfast taco/burrito!!!!

I am looking forward to not having a foot or so of snow and temps below zero. I can’t prepare myself for the constant heat from February thru December. That will be the part that I will have to get used too.

Welcome! The plant is actually closer to Portland than Sinton. I bought a few acres and built a house a few years back just under a mile from where it's being built. The area has grown tremendously in the last few years. I sold the home and bought a house and 20 acres about 30 mins out.

There are alot of areas you could look for like you mentioned in the general vicinity without living in town in Portland or Sinton. Portland is nice but you mentioned being in the country. Close to the plant, there is a lot of rural area like Woodsboro, Sinton, Ingleside all with easy country drive away less than 30 minutes.

There are alot of TBH's in this area, many I have yet to meet. I moved here 12 years ago. Feel free to PM me for any specific questions or if I could answer any question you might have.

Best of luck to you.

Michael

If anyone has a very inexpensive camper not too horribly far from there could you send me a PM? I am going to need somewhere to stay for several months before my family comes down with me. I didn’t want to get a house until my house up here would sell and a month or two before they come down.
I won’t be coming down until the end of June, early July or early August so the person would have to be a little patient with me with my arrival date.
I figured I would just park it at a rv/camper park and stay as long as I could. Like I said though, it has to be inexpensive cause they are not splurging on moving expenses! I figured there were a few members that were halfway close to that area that may be able to help a guy out.
Thanks

I just realized I made a mistake. For some reason, I thought you were referencing the new Exxon plant being built in Gregory/Portland. I realized you referenced steel. I forgot about the new steel plant being built in Sinton. There has been a ton of growth in the area in recent years.

Regardless, there's alot of area you can live in within a 30-45 minute vicinity. I have noticed significant changes in the real estate market in the area in the last 3-5 years.

Congrats on getting to move to the greatest state in the union! You won!


Your family will be in for some culture shock. There won't be very much at all that is like it is back home. But like anything you can find more good than bad if you are positive and look for the good. If not you can find plenty to make you miserable if you are looking for that.

Oh I am sure the first few months I will think I am making a mistake and question why I decided to do this just because I will be part of a start up to a new mill which I have never done before. Then I will see all the walls up and machinery and lines running and then my wife will be with me and it will be all worth it.
I am very excited to be part of this and a new start that is starting in Texas. I am sure the hospitality I will receive will be out of this world. Most people that I speak to here are very nice and very outgoing. The times I have been down to Texas 99% of the people are great. New start and the anxiety that comes with that is what I will have to overcome when I get down there.
Thanks again to all the have congratulated me and welcomed me. I hope my future residency is an added benefit to the state of Texas and not a burden and thanks for welcoming me.
