It scares the living shit out of me.
I know too many people who bought fuel-efficient cars and routinely: We rented a house very near my work several years ago. We tried to buy a house in that neighborhood.
Part of it was price. Part of it was anticipated repairs. Part of it was the increased cost of real estate taxes and property insurance. But the real deal breaker for us was education. We had 4 kids at home at that time. Even the real estate agents who were trying to sell us homes in that area acknowledged that the nearby public schools were below par and in some opinions unsafe.
My wife who is herself a public school teacher pored over the statistics and we really could not come to any conclusion other than to move to a suburban area with far superior schools.
Reply MMM October 6,9: Am I suggesting that we carefully choose our jobs, schools, and even our city of residence, just to avoid car commuting?
Weston October 6, We tried to find a different city. Because of licensing restrictions both my wife and I had to remain in the state unless we wanted to go through substantial effort and expense to be relicensed elsewhere.
The few job offers we got elsewhere in the state were at substantially reduced salaries. Funny thing is that 9 years later my eldest daughter bought a small house in the same general area we had rented in.
She has a five minute commute but she and her husband are going broke from house repairs, house payments, property taxes, property insurance and private school tuition to make sure that their kids get a good education. We all make sacrifices to one extent or the other. I hate my commute but I would much rather put up with the 25 minute commute in order to avoid the crushing debt load that would have occurred if I wanted to live in a safe area in my city, with decent schools and a reasonable bike ride to my office where I would also have to join a health club in order to shower and change into my suit after biking to work Reply MMM October 6, On the positive side, since your job is fancy enough to involve suits and licenses, it is probably high-paying enough to allow you to retire decades before most people, bringing your average commute back down as you age.
Riding a bike is not an insane physical trial where you come out dripping with sweat and smelling like a hog. Reply MMM October 6, I just checked the weather history for that day — the high was 84 degrees F! Showering at work is good for reducing your own hot water bills, but not necessary for most people who bike to work.
Reply Joe Average November 17, Its hot, hilly and humid here TN in the summer. One alternative that I explored but did not spent any money on yet was a powered bicycle that has the effect of flattening the hills out.

The only challenege and an easy one is entertaing ourselves on the weekends. This has been improving for a long time with free park concerts local bandslocal plays, hiking, walking, cookouts, etc.
Look for small cities and large towns. Not a place where six figure incomes are common though. No matter how fit I may be at that particular period all it takes is the slightest exertion and I start sweating like a pig.
