Congratulations! Keep us posted for a meet-up once you get here and get settled a bit. There isn't much life on this board but a few check it regularly; we just need a good reason to get together!

once the heat becomes tolerable we shall make an Ozark Mountain run, 3 days maybe 4.  Could you swing that with your new gig?  Mhanis is too chicken shit to go but I'll bet Jason will and maybe we can scrounge a few others.

I may be on a 9/80 schedule (every other Friday off), but not sure yet.

Once I get settled in, I'll have a better idea. 

I also have to burn a few vacation days between now & December to avoid losing time.

Anyone know about this place?  Put a set of eyes on it this week or next?

Just be aware, when you get down in the urban jungle like that place is, make sure you are looking at the entire neighborhood for a few blocks around, and because Dallas has a heavy 'night life' scene, I would go down on a Friday or Saturday night and see what you think before making a commitment.

I currently live in an urban setting, with a condo currently under construction closer to downtown Denver. 

I'm not worried about the "urban jungle"...my neighborhood has sounded like little Baghdad with all of the fireworks going off.

My plan is to live close to Dallas for first 6-9 months until I get a better feel for the area.  I can tell you that I'm not planning on living in the northern suburbs near the office in Plano.

Well... that's not really where I was going with it, but you will see.

You want to live in Plano, you have to fight all the new Toyota people for housing!  There are other areas besides Plano, just depends on what you want.  Because of what I do for a living, I'm pretty familiar with the entire McKinney/Frisco/Plano/Allen area.

The office is in Plano, on Headquarters Drive, between Legacy and Spring Creek (directly south of SRT).

I'm staying in Addison this week and the drive up Midway Road has been very favorable.

I was going to suggest Addison but you may also look at the shops of legacy area.  Good food, bars and some good people watching and from what I've seen the majority are well into their thirties. If you free up some time this coming weekend we can toss a beer or two.

Thoughts on downtown Plano (15th & J/K Street)?

Keep in mind, I'm planning on renting initially and then purchasing after I get a better feel for the area.

My wife and I really like downtown Plano, plenty there to keep you entertained for a while. As a long time married father of 2 I have no input on the living/renting conditions there other than to say everything looks nice from the outside!

And you'd be a stones throw from one of the Duc dealers in the area if that matters to you.

I'd be game for a meetup this weekend as I am a bachelor Friday and Saturday.
