Man-cation Anyway?

Who is Dan Alderman?

Hi, guys, I’m Dan Alderman – your basic jack of all trades and master of none. I’ve created Texas Outdoors to introduce everyone to some of the most awesome man-cations and daytrips for dudes in the Lone Star State. What’s a man-cation you ask? A man-cation is the ultimate guy’s trip that usually involves the outdoors, sports, awesome music, meat and adult beverages.

How I got here

I grew up in West Central Florida where I developed a passion for the outdoors fishing the bays and camping around the natural springs. After I graduated from UF (Go Gators), I moved to Southern California and started a love affair with the surf, mountains and rock formations that expanded my perspective of how amazing Mother Nature’s playground truly is. Now I’m living in the great state of Texas and continue to seek adventure and experiences in every corner. Whether you’re in Austin or Houston, Dallas or San Antonio, amazing things are right outside your backdoor and calling you to come out and play.


Who is this website for?

I’ve started this blog to show EVERYDAY PEOPLE the extraordinary things to do within a couple of hours from home. But I’m not some sponsored professional athlete, celebrity outdoorsman or lottery winner with a never ending bank account. I’m just a normal dude that loves to play hard and experience everything that life has to offer as often as I can. I’m hoping that I can break down the barriers and show that you don’t need a lot of time or experience to get taken out of your comfort zone and have an awesome day.

What you're gonna get

At Texas Outdoors we’ll show you some of the best playgrounds for guys, introduce some new music and point the way toward your next man-cation. Whether you’re a newbie or seasoned outdoorsman, I hope I can show you a side of Texas you’ve never experienced.

So sit back, gear up and enjoy the ride …
