Moving From SoCal To Texas

Well gents I finally received my work relocation package from my work.

I will be moving from SoCal to just north of Dallas Texas.

My wife and I are very excited to make this move.

After signing a two year relocation contract I will be making the move as early as late spring and as late as August 1st, 2017

I have been with my current company for almost 17 years now and plan on retiring from the same company.

Looking forward in meeting some of you on this forum in Texas.

It's ago Shrug !!!

Can't wait to leave this beautiful but fu-cked state of California.

I've been here 53 years and I just can't stand it here anymore.

If this state turns into a sanctuary state it'll for sure be bankrupt, which it pretty much is already.

Looking to buy a house near Plano or Frisco area but have founda great house in Parker.

Now comes the fun part of selling my current house and making the purchase of my new house.

Looking forward in finding the local hangouts and bike nights in that area.

We just can't wait.

Lot's of luck man. SoCal weather can't be beat, but you're in for a MAJOR culture/political shock going to Texas!

I have family in Fort Worth Texas already and also Oklahoma.

Trust me I fit in better in Texas then SoCal.

If you don't want a culture shock stay away from SoCal not Texas.

The people in Texas are great and I'm a Republican not a Democrat so I will be much happy in Texas I can tell you that for sure.

Been to the Gas Monkey bar and grill a few time, what a cool place.

My favorite place is Billy Bob's & Stockyards.

I'm all about country music and the seen.

Always a great time and don't forget the two steppin.

Swomack congrats on going forward and making the decision to move. I know you have been saying you would like too, but doing it is a whole nother thing. I have a close friend, actually he's my brother in law that lives in San Antonio. He's been there a few years now and loves it. My wife and I have been talking about relocating some were warm. She would have no problem with work being in the medical field. I'm a self employed contrator so it maybe I little more difficult for me. But my hats off to you. Congrats I'm happy for ya.
