About Tex

Tex McBride is a rancher and homesteader who lives somewhere in the windy part of Wyoming. He grew up never wanting to be anything but a cowboy with animals and livestock always playing a large role in his life.

If one were to come up with a comical label, you might say he is a "comfortablist." Going to the woods and constantly honing bushcraft skills is not really his thing, but working around the ranch to make sure things run smoothly acts as a constant teacher for him.
