I figure if anybody can appreciate what a great feeling it is to escape the madness of big-city traffic and move to the lake, it's this group. After eight years of surviving I-75 from south of McKinney to my job downtown, today the end is in sight. My offer on a house in Enchanted Oaks was accepted, so we'll soon be sitting with lower blood pressure and bigger smiles on our over-sized dock (with good water and out of the wind) in the evenings, catching crappie on the brush piles I'll be submerging.

Both kids are off to college. Daughter heading into third year at Texas Tech; son just headed to the University of Oregon on a baseball/academic scholarship.

Go Ducks. Go Red Raiders.

Dad's goin' fishin'.

I'm actually in Lucas, so we are in the same boat. The funny thing is, I'll go from a 32-mile commute to a 60-mile commute -- but I'll bet I get home in the evenings in about the same time.

Hope you are able to make a same soon.

Congrats on the new home in a great area of CCL.
After living in a lake front home on CCL for 15 years, I finally sold out and moved back to Oklahoma! I got tired of the traffic around CCL!!!!!!! hehehehe
