Thanks Rob, I'll put that book on my list.
Gorr, I'm working on doing something about that. There are a number of considerations that go along with that move though. For example, housing in the area I work in tends to be either very expensive, or rather run down. I also have to consider the quality of the schools my kids would be zoned for. We need to find a good compromise between affordability, safety, proximity to employment and quality of the neighborhood.
I also need to eliminate my debt and build up funds for the purchase of a house. We are actively working on this.
PS. it's 3 hours round trip.
