@bajadahl - thanks so much for the pointers! Frio River area looks beautiful. Never been there before, so it would be fun to explore the area, and see a total solar eclipse.
My family visits a lot of state parks here in TX. The crystal clear water of the Frio River & surrounding "Hill Country" is absolutely gorgeous. Garner is our favorite state park so far...river is incredible (fun to enjoy during the summer) and some great hiking as well. Awesome part of TX, but somewhat remote with no major towns close, but the small towns are part of the charm.

A long time ago when my wife and I were poor college students we spent part of our honeymoon in a cabin on the Frio. It really is beautiful area of Texas.

I'm in line for an LE R1T in Rivian Blue with the 20" all terrains

Native Texan now living in College Station. Pre-ordered in July 2020 and hoping to have my truck by the holiday season.

I'm an imported Texan here....makes me still a Texan right? From Edinburgh, Scotland and living here with my Texan wife and kids in Sugar Land outside of Houston. I did have the (triple motor) Cybertruck on pre-order but cancelled that today.

Wow, great to see a lot of us.

Native TX, grew up in Houston, college in Lubbock, then lived in Dallas 8 years or so. Been 'stuck' in Chicago for almost 15 years but am now part time and soon full time living back home down around Marble Falls / Spicewood TX (45 minutes West of Austin in the Hill Country).

Beautiful area, I have family in Marble Falls & some good friends in Spicewood on the lake. We'll have to organize a TX Rivian meetup at Hidden Falls Adventure Park to do some off road "testing"!

To all my fellow Texans here, please take a couple minutes to do this!

BTW, be sure to reach out to your state rep & senator in support of HB 4379. Hopefully it will get more traction due to Tesla's Austin Gigafactory, but the car dealers have a very powerful lobby...

Alright, I have to know what color... I think there are already a couple of us considering white for R1S here!

It's not until my dad comes visit and he says "why are there so many white cars here" that I actually notice that yes, there are a lot of white cars here :) Back in Scotland, where it rains constantly, you will only see white as police vehicles and company trade vehicles.

I do actually like white cars but my wife, who is a recent 22 year veteran engineer in the oil industry (it's how we met), forbids any car colour being present in our garage that reminds her of getting up at 3 in the morning to travel across state to run wireline in a West Texas / New Mexico oil or gas well.

Blue exterior with the Oceana interior, silver wheels with off-road tires. It was the only color the family agreed on and I figure it will make it easier to find in the woods 😄
