    Hardeman Lodge No. 179 (Luling, TX)
    Prairie Lee Lodge No. 114 (Fentress, TX)
    Hochiem Lodge No. 182 (Hochiem, TX) Cool Place

    I really like seeing other lodges in action. So I have been to

    Round Rock Lodge #227, where I am a member
    Norton Moses Lodge #336 in Leander
    Onion Creek Lodge #220 in Austin
    Burleson Lodge #649

    It is a pretty short list, but I was only raised in September, so give me some time.

    Yeah, I forgot that when they hold the annual meeting in the Alamo, you are sitting in Alamo Lodge.

    So add that one as well. :)

    Man I guess I shoulda kept track of where I have been, who am I kidding I am not even sure where I am going. Brother Blake is right to impress upon all of us to visist other Lodges especially rural ones, you always recieve Masters wages when you go. Kudos on the topic Brother Blake I wish I would take the time and think about the Lodges I visited but I do not see myself doing that.
    Brother Josh what about Panther City, Cooke-Peavey & Julian Field those should be at the top since you visit them every time you come to Lodge. lol

    Well Those too but I don't count them. I have never done anything in those lodges officially. With their officers and all. I could count them though just to pad the stats. Good thinking.

    Melrose No.1294 has a printed Pass Port book that you can inter the lodge you visit and have the officer’s sign and have the seceratary have the lodge seal stamped in it. They are $5.00 and can be ordered from the lodge secretary.

    Eureka #371

    Ridglea #1341 (as an EA observing an EA degree)

    I have relatives in West Virginia and was going to visit lodges when I ever got the chance to go and see my family, but after seeing all the crap going on up there, I'll just not visit any lodges if I am ever up there, until something is permanantly decided.
