44 1/2 years here....so yeah I may be rooted in at this point.  I do keep mentioning to the wife that with my work I can be just about anywhere and work remote.  She has been tempted but really wants to keep our daughter in the school system here in Allen.

 

You sound like me when it comes to the kids. My son is sophomore this year so he's got 2 more years of high school left. After that thou, I think my wife are both in agreement it's free agency time in terms of where we wanna be after that. While I will admit I doubt will go anywhere, anytime soon, we are both in agreement about if we ever do move, it'd be westward to either Eugene (my 1st preference) or Bend, (I think her preference but she also likes Eugene as well) Oregon. While we both like Portland & the Oregon Coast I don't think either place has us wanting to live there. Great to visit thou!

I can make just about any date range fit. But I appreciate the late October weather as it avoids the Texas summer heat (from a Canadian perspective).

So easy solution....you all move to TX

 

I already did my penance of living in Texas.. I did Basic in El Paso, AIT in Austin and was engaged to someone from Houston.

I love that it is on my birthday weekend. Easy present to ask for. Unfortunately I don't know if we will be able to go next year because I am spending all my money on the dogs' vet bills. Good thing I love them. Hopefully after next week all their health issues will be taken care of and I can start saving money. Otherwise I will be begging someone to pick up my swag and VIP bags.

I Really like the late October dates. They work out well for me. The weather in TX is great at that time and it allows for good planning. 

 

 

October is kinda terrible for me.  I have so many cons that happen in that timeframe/months--Reaper Con, BGG.Con, ASLOK, Mile Hi Con.  But I am planning on RC next year.

Well I see the problem right there. :)  Big D is where the cool people reside.

Please no - we have already been inundated with people moving here over the past five years.

Good LORD, no. You wanna move to one of the suburb cities, and then spend your life setting as little foot in Dallas proper as possible.

 

To be fair, I live in Arlington. Probably do not much room to talk, do I?

I am in Allen but at this point anywhere in the DFW area feels about the same.  At times we feel like we are just far enough out of the big city to enjoy life a little more.  Then I want to go somewhere in the big city and it takes 45 min to get there. :/

I was fine with the spring, I like the fall better because the temps are better. 

 

Fall is also better because you don't have conflicts with Adepticon.

If you have a good school system, and a good relationship with the schools, treasure it.

Ontario decides it wants to know for something other then the most crime per capita in the state of Oregon. (ok ok we are number 2 this year but not by much!) Starting this month they've reduced what can & can be recycled.

More or less just cardboard & milk jugs now. 

 

Sanitary aka city blames China but is more of less fall out from a failed or recalled proposed city sales tax. Yes anther thing Ontario wanted to be known as "only city in Oregon with a sales tax....." & they wonder why there are many homes for sale & they need a sales tax in the first place. 

 

Back to the Con. Rcon in the spring was nice. It was right before Texas started to fry. One year it did get hot but only on Sunday (wanna say 2006 or 07) + it was a nice way to end winter & welcome spring. Now with it in October you don't have to worry so much about the weather. We'll besides the occasional thunderstorm. (been awhile since I got see one like we got Saturday @ the Con this year) or a kinda warm day.

 

Picked up the printed adventures for '18 games tonight! Early? Yes but when you get % off coupons you use them!
