Reality Bites, South Dakota Edition

October 25, 2009

The good news is that we’re going to be Longhorns after all.  The bad news is that we already bought non-refundable tickets to Omaha in November; planning to do the short-ish drive to Sioux Falls so we can get shiny new drivers licenses.

Why are we deep sixing SD (aside from my penchant for leather chaps)?  Health insurance.  We’re changing plans because of our bloody-awful health insurance system.  On a hunch I started calling some insurance brokers in SD to ask about using the mail forwarding address as the basis for insurance in the state.  All of them told me the exact same thing, that I need proof of physical residence to qualify for health insurance.  Are you freaking kidding me?  We’re a couple of healthy 38 year olds and we can’t buy health insurance unless we also buy or rent a house in the state?  Go kill yourself!

So Texas here we come.  Yeeeeeee-Haaaaaaawwwwww!
