   Welcome to Brad Stone's home page! Brushy Land is the nickname for a piece of land my dad bought back in the late '70s. It is 230 acres of forested, hilly East Texas land near Athens, TX. It's located near a creek called Brushy Creek...hence the nickname "Brushy Land." Dad and I and our friends go out there several times a year to camp, shoot skeet, immerse ourselves in nature, laugh at each other and ride 4-wheelers & motorcycles. Good times.
