Enjoying outdoor recreation.

Allergies notwithstanding, there’s something magical about being in the great Texas outdoors, wouldn’t you agree?

Over the years, we’ve discovered that people who love the outdoors also love to talk about their experiences in it. Does that sound like you? We hope so, because we want you to share your favorite Texas outdoor memory with us.

Bill Harwell did.

Bill, who lives in Austin, told us his most memorable moment came when he was a boy. He and his cousin went fishing with their grandmother and great Aunt Edna at Lake Wright Patman in East Texas — in the dead of night! The way he describes fending off the hordes of insects drawn to their lanterns is just priceless. Hear it for yourself this month.

So, what’s your story?

Send us an email to THIS ADDRESS , with your contact information and your favorite Texas outdoor memory. While we prefer that your recollection have a Texas flavor, we enjoy hearing about any memorable outdoor experience wherever it occurred.

If we decide to use your story on the air, we’ll give you a call so you can tell it in your own words for Passport to Texas listeners statewide to enjoy. Plus, we’ll post it on our website.

Who knows — your story might just inspire someone else to get outdoors and create memories of their own.

And that will give you a whole new story to tell.
