    Austin! I've been a mer for a year and a half. I like it quite a bit because there's lots of fun places to swim here, and even more about 2 and a half hours away. The weather is also very useful for swimming in Texas, but a little more in Austin too since northern Texas typically gets colder faster and more cold fronts tend to hit it.

    Just outside of Abilene here. And as far as I know, I'm the only merman in my area.

    League City, it's between Houston and Galveston. (although pretty soon I'm gonna go off to a Texas Conservation Corps position that's going to take me to parks all around the state) Only recently got into mer, I have a monofin but I still need to make a tail, I have to put that off until July.

    We are in Dallas-Fort Worth. A state meet up is planned for August. I think it has its own thread. I think they decided on Joe Pool Lake. I *think.*

    I've had an interest for years, but only started making swimmable tails last year. So far have turned out a fabric tail that works well and a silicone tail that I've been too afraid of messing up to try. Still need to find a deep-enough pool for that tail.
