My sentiments, exactly. If you don't like foggy summers (at least May, June, July), Ventura may not be for you. But this is one of the things I find most attractive about the area, especially during those months when TO and Simi roast.

How bad is the commute from Ventura to Warner Center? Is there a certain time that traffic tends to clear by?

On the upside Warner Center isn't in LA so that cuts a lot of time off the trip. With no traffic it's 45 minutes. During rush hours all bets are off. Several times it's taken an hour just to go from the 23/101 interchange in Thousand Oaks to Victoria in Ventura. That's only about half the trip.

Then you're right where you should be! That's what it is all about.

Thanks. I asked this question in the LA forums and got some answers, but I would like to re-ask it before I move.

When does rush hour end? I'm thinking about making the commute around 8:45 in the morning (trying to arrive around 9:30 +/- 15 mins. When should I leave for work, you think?)

I've done it before and found the way totally clear (and yeah, 45 mins was the time).

How about coming home? Departing Warner Center around 5:45, 6:00ish is it bad headed for Ventura?

I looked into the train and VISTA but they run so darned EARLY!

I need to find a carpool as lazy as me. I hate driving, and I REALLY hate driving in traffic. Riding, though. I don't care.
