That's where I want to be after I graduate.

Share the experiences when you are there/get back.

Have a good time.

Being at the Texas Motor Speedway, you'll be closer to Fort Worth - there's a place in downtown Ft Worth called "Riskys" great ribs! If you get to the upper west side of Dallas there's reastaurant row with a ton of good "eats" (& uhmm gentlemen clubs also. The "Texas cure-all" - Having a bad day? Hell with it, lets go to the titty bar Vinnie from Pantera owns Dallas Gentlemens Club)

I guess you havn't been to Oregon or Washington much. It is far from flat over here. And not to mention one of the best Ski/Snowboard seasons in a long time!!

I am back and have been for a couple days but you know how things back up on you when you are out of town.

Dallas/Ft. Worth was very flat. kind of annoying, but we all can't afford hills. Being a nascar event it had the usual amount of redneck, mixed with hick. Some good sponsors were there. Jack Daniels, Crown Royal and Berreta (the gun people) I did see a few bimmers in the lots but mostly pick-ups, SUV's and Campers.

AS for work, I did get a lot done. I also managed to make it down to Dallas to the former book depository. Much smaller than you would imagine.

Pics will be coming in a few more days. I'm still working on the stuff that didn't get done while I was gone.

You didn't mention prior to your trip that you wanted hills. Just southwest of Dallas/Ft Worth is what they call "hill country". It's not the rockies but pretty close. Texas has a little of everything - hills, mountains, desert, etc... Remember it's "only" 1001 miles across (east to west)
