    Admittedly, the CO job is just to get me down there. The Dallas/Ft. Worth area has stacks of IT jobs listed, a few conversations with some agencies indicate I've got a pretty good shot at getting one of them once I have a TX address. The wife and kids are are going to finish out the school year here in AZ, by which time I should have one of those better paying, more intellectually stimulating jobs. Taking a pay cut for the move, which is really going to suck, but the long term benefits should be well worth it.


    Just stay out of south/sotheast Dallas and you'll do fine.

    Welcome!!!
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Good Luck! I liked the Dallas area a lot when I visited years ago. Nicer people and the most courteous drivers I've ever experienced. The homes are nice too and super inexpensive, so you get a lot for your money. I came close to buying an investment home in Preston Hollow, in North Dallas (where GWB now lives), but after I visited North Georgia, I decided to buy there instead.
