Well, there's definitely a ton of options for her. If I were in her position, though, I'd live close to work. It's not a question of loving or hating driving, I personally LOVE it!

It's more a question of avoiding the absolute NUTS here that pass for "competent drivers". That and the DWIs? Yeah. Minimize the miles, minimize the possibility of encounters with nuts or incompetent police officers with poorly calibrated "speed detectors" who are out to get your money. PATHETIC!

Cost of living out there is almost half of what it would be here. Another reason I have been considering the move.

Again being close to work is awesome, but I do love driving and taking my Z06 out to stretch it's legs from time time.

There are more then enough people that can't drive down here so that would be nothing new. Remember I'm coming from a city of 2.8 + million people. I think SA is just a little less then half of that close to 1.4 million, so driving might just be a little better there.

I agree, I love driving but hate traffic. I just want to go unimpeded, lol. I know, its a lot to ask. 'Tis why i look for the reverse commute and find a place to live accordingly.

I have done some research on places to live and what area would be best for me. I currently have a 25-30 minute commute to work which is about 32 miles one way from where I live, but it's all highway. Also I like driving so that doesn't bother me. Although I would like to have a shorter commute if possible. I went to the mall in La Cantera and seemed like a nice area, sooo curious if that would a good area to look for a place? I also found a few places that look really nice by the Stone Oak & Encino Ranch area, but not sure if that would be to far north of where everything is. Any ideas would be a great help, I do have a friend that lives out there but don't want to ask them for help since I kind of want to surprise them if I decide to make the move.

I do have a few job offers out there so I would like to start seriously looking at the best places to live.
I'll send you a DM regarding San Antonio. Good luck with whatever you decide.
