The good news about being here in the Dallas area is that it is a WHOLE lot warmer than Minneapolis.
Any thought about playing some rugby down here in Big D has to be weighed very carefully. There are pros and cons to working as a travel nurse-and I won't bore you with the details. One quirk of this 3 month posting in Texas is that I won't be accruing any sick leave hours. (I do, at least, have health insurance)
It's a tough call. If I was really that concerned about my health, I never would have started playing 5 years ago at the age of 45. I know I had a great time playing last fall with the Metropolis Old Boys against the East Side Banshees and playing at the Ruggerfest in Aspen. It's something that I have not totally decided on, but I have been giving it a great deal of thought.
