I agree. My neighborhood is smack in the middle of the woods I used to ride dirtbikes in as a kid. Gotta drive 20 minutes from here to find woods now. Haha
Welcome to you personally but I am ambivalent toward the references to DFW having lived here for a good long time. If I woke up one morning to news reports that half the people in the metroplex had moved away, I would be ecstatic.

I grew up 320 mile south of here... But, my little town still felt little when I moved to my present house 12 years ago. The home construction cranked up again a few years ago and I know have traffic indistinguishable from all the other prosperous burbs. :D Yet I am not particularly prosperous. :D

I feel your pain guys. I grew up in a really rural area west of here, been here 15 years or so. I hate the rat race but no livelihood where I'm from except the up and down oilfield. Had enough of that in my younger days.

That's why we are here, mostly. :D Honestly, it's just the dang traffic. I work for Humongo Telecom and I have somehow always managed to have a 25 or 30 mile commute to work. Currently I do Sachse to Las Colinas. That goodness I work at night so I am only in the stop and go in the morning on the way home.
