Default might be moving to Texas

     

So I got laid off up here and I am not sure I wanna stay. To many indicators that its going to get much worse around here with all these corporations relocating to cheaper cities so they can pay their employees less. But the recruiters I am working with keep showing me companies in Dallas / Ft Worth and we are thinking about it. How is it in Texas? Hows Dallas Ft Worth? how many tracks are near by there? I think I can pretty much get along with anyone anywhere so as long as construction is doing okay I am okay anywhere its warm. Thoughts?

I can't tell you much about work in Texas, but the riding around Dallas/Ft. Worth and north to the Red River is something you will LOVE. Lots of tracks and Nocona MX is a MUST. Oak Hill, River Valley, Buffalo Creek, Village Creek, Bowie, etc.....
And the National track at Freestone is only about an hour and a half south.
You won't have any trouble finding places to ride. MX or trails.
However, its freakin' H-O-T in the summer! Gotta get acclimated before you go out and kill yourself. On the other hand, winter riding is pretty regular.

As for construction, I see lots of changes as I roll through that area on my way south. That's about all I can offer since I'm not there for any period of time.

I live in weatherford about 30 minutes west of fort worth, I'm more in the country. There is a fair amount of work in the dallas fort worth area. There are tracks all over, I have road the river valley and freestone tracks, they are both real nice prefer the river valley track though( cause I'm old). If you ride off road check out tornracing.com. For work look at workintexas.com.

I like being old. Makes me smarter. Just gotta find that balance between old and bold. There is still mucho fun to be had on a dirt bike no matter how old you get. BTW, I'll be 49 in a couple of months.
