Hello, World!

Hi all! It’s been awhile. As you might have noticed. WildTexas.com, the “Texas Parks, Nature & Travel Guide”, is no more. It had been online since 1995 and the content had grown out-of-date. I’ll let you in on my plans for the domain going forward soon, but in the meantime, I just wanted to let you know there’s still life here and I’m glad someone’s still knocking on the door occasionally. 😉

    Sure miss wildtexas.com. I used that web site to plan my trips across the country every year. I liked the format and hate to see it go. All good things come to an end. Blessings Sandpoint Idaho.

    Sorry to see the wild texas trip planner demise. I can’t find anything that works as well or is so easy to use and was free. most others are too complicated and do not give clear or accurate directions. I still have my gps but like to see the maps.

    went to plan my trip and …… you were gone! Best trip and route planning!!!! Please come back!!! Imissyou!!!!

  4. Similarly are used while Texas for point-to-point directions and mileage across the country. I don’t need to find the nearest store. I need to find the best and fastest directions, including mileage say between Charlotte, North Carolina, and Raleigh, North Carolina. Ring a bell?

  5. Wild Texas was my main source for planning trips, no other site seems to compare on the same level.

  6. The absolute best travel calculator is not gone 🙁
    I hope it comes back!

    Please come back!! I use you all the time for planning points of entry from Alaska to lower 48.

  8. Hope you are able to bring it back – was the best place to go for planning and calculating travel! I really miss you!

    I agree with everyone here, wildtexas.com was The Best. Used it all over the country for years. Bring it back, if you can!

    I’m a trucking owner operator and it was easily the best mileage program I ever used! Directions, mileages and choices of routes were perfect. Sure wish you would bring it back!

    Shannon, Woo-Hoo! Congratulations on your hard work and perseverance. Wishing you the best going forward. I look forward to jumping on the site again when it’s up and going.

  12. This was the best and easiest trip calculator ever. I’ve suggested it to many folks over the years.

    Then one day it was gone.

    I’m so pleased to see it up and running once more.

    Thank you!

  13. Wild Texas is the best mapping program anywhere. Thank you for getting it back on the net. We use it every time before we head out, and it offers the alternative routes. I tell everyone to use it because it is so accurate and simple. THANK YOU.
