Malibu is probably out. I don't have millions of dollars. Are there any middle class options there. Probably "off the grid" in some area that is swept by wildfires every ten years. I seem to be answering my own questions.

I drive to Warner Center each weekday morning, and back to Ventura each weekday afternoon. I start my drive at 7am on the nose; exit Topanga no later than 7:38am. That's with one or two slow downs. It's been about 45 minutes going the other direction, with a slow down at the 23 and the grade. Bad days are an hour.

The freeway time from Ventura to TO would be 25-30 minutes each way, with ugly accidents and Friday nights gumming up anyones estimates.

No can do. 7 AM is way too early for me. How long would it take if you have left at 8 AM

I'll tell you tomorrow In case you weren't familiar, Warner Center is about 15-20 mins beyond TO.

Yeah it's a ways. It's good to know that you can get to LA that quickly if you time it right. The basic problem is there don't seem to be any alternatives to 101. We have 101 up here also and I basically avoid it on weekdays.

126 -> 23 is a backup route. It has its issues, but is generally reliable. Easy access from Ventura.

As far as Ventura schools go, Poinsettia -> Cabrillo JHS -> Ventura HS is the preferred track. Loma Vista is also excellent;
Sure, El Camino High has a better API though

If you're referring to the El Camino on the VC campus, it's a very small independent study school. Not sure if that's the HS experience that fits your kids. There's also Foothill Technology HS, which is a specialized public HS with under 1,000 students.

I see, Ventura is dicier. I am kind of leaning toward Camarillo.

1. Better Schools
2. Lower Crime
3. Shorter Commute

And you know I am not really a beach person, I just don't like paying for air conditioning, so I am guessing Camarillo wil be nice enough weatherwise for my taste.

Camarillo is a great choice. The rational one too.
