Cool. I finally actually not only read the thread, being a Houston BOTL, but saw it was "dated" 2011, so thinking it was a necro thread I was confused, but once I saw the thread previous to this one it all made sense. Wow, it cool to read the history in those conversations from several years back. I too would be interested in what happened to those guys.
The weekly herfs are something I miss as well. We had a nice shop in Gainesville for awhile that I would visit but they closed. I don't herf much, despite a nice place to go, here in Switzerland. I walk out of the place spending 60-100CHF a time and can't afford to make that a habit.
I will be in the Houston area, San Felipe (Sealy) to be exact from Feb 19th (landing late on the 18th) until Thursday the 23rd then back on Thursday March 2nd. We fly out late on the 3rd. Let's get something going for one of those days.
