My wife and I figured on if nothing happens by early/mid September job-wise, we'd see about heading to North Texas. Anyone have any advice regarding this? I've looked at texas.gov already. Confused

Frankly, it almost doesn't matter. But seeing you're in H., I'd love to see about working at the DeLorean place there. Drool

If i were to move to the northern part of Texas, I'd definitely move to the outskirts of the DFW area.

Advice for texas? Nothing but steers and queers in texas buddy. So steer clear of those. Also, be on alert. Texas has some of the worst drivers in the world. So be prepared for people to change lanes without looking, and also turn into the highway without looking. They also drive like theres noone else on the road. Other than the unbearable, oppressive heat and humidity in the spring and summer, Texas is pretty good place to live. Very affordable and you can pretty much live anywhere and have everything you need at your disposal.

There are a lot of fast drivers in TX. If your not careful you'll get run over.

You'd be coming with me, since that's our car. Ohio is the same way with having idiot drivers.

If your hAVING A HARD TIME FINDING A JOB WHY MOVE TO nORTHERN tx? Didn't mean caps to be on. Why there and not somewhere else? I lived in TX for three years but I moved 6+ years ago. So no new advice from me. Didn't like the state all that much. A lot of the laws didn't play in favor of what I like to do. And its very open...which I like but you have to travel too far for certain things. The heat sucks at times but its better than crappy winters up here in Chicago.

do you want to be in north Texas or Texas in general... I would prefer Plano if you where going to the DFW area, i think it is nicer overall. If you just want to come to Texas i would say Austin or possibly SA and in third an area out side of Houston like sugar land or Katy

I live in Denton, it's outside of Dallas and Ft Worth but close enough to drive in less than an hour. Plus it's close to Texas Motor Speedway Cool But, it's a college town, that has plus's and minuses. Lots of single family houses are rental property, but a lot of homes on the market too. Lots of apartments too. I've been working for the county for 15 years, they're not hiring, but the universities (UNT and TWU) frequently do; there's some manufacturing around here (my brother works for Peterbilt) but you'll just have to do a lot of research. Yes, it's hot (we're probably going to have 25 days in a row of 100+ degree weather, started end of July) but it hardly ever snows more than 6" and that won't last more than a day or two. Plus, there are lots of lakes for summer fun. PM me if you'd like any other info.

This is still a fun car to drive, even though it's now 8 years old. I just wish Chevy had given me reason to go out and buy a new one when they had the chance, when they gave Pontiac the Holden-platform G8 they should have done the same with the Impala. Now I'm actually thinking about getting a Volt.
