Today my faith in Texas property owners was restored a little bit. I have been scouting a particular piece of public land and until today, the only access route I had to this area consisted of a 1.5 mile hike in, through some think nasty undergrowth. By looking through some online resources, I was able to find the property owners' name and met him and his wife today.
Turns out he is an Iowa transplant and has been through the whole "knocking on doors and looking for permission" routine. After spending an hour inside their beautiful home and speaking to him and his wife, I was able to gain sole permission to walk through their property and access the public land that their property had land locked! My wife says I "have big balls" but I say, "what is the worst they can say? No?!" Thanks to Mark @wiredtohunt and Dan @ninefingerchronicles for giving me the faith in humanity to ask for permission down here in Texas. People down here don't give it often and I honestly believe that if this property owner hadn't been from Iowa, I still wouldn't have access!
