    To crush the locals, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women. This is the way of the nomad.

    Thread made me lol and is worthy of my first post.

    Only a 20 minute drive to the beach for me. Life could be much worse.

    I'm curious as to what you do that pays so much better inland? I mean, there's some damn high paying cities along both coasts. Granted the cost of living is much higher, but very commutable to beach living, or suburb living with a much better beach commute.

    Did you start a business tied to your inland location or somthing?

    I've lived close enough to the beach to wake up to the sound of a solid swell breaking.....but I now live a solid 1-1.5 hrs drive away. For me, the choice of location is was based on family reasons, but we all make choices.

    I'm still close enough to dawn patrols, but man it's tough sometimes.

    I wish somebody had hit you before you finished that post...give me a break. Hopefully you and your wife don't have any children that you're indoctrinating with this attitude.

    i believe i speak for the majority of the 'locals' who frequent this site when i say that we wouldnt take a 6 figure salary 3 hours from the beach as opposed to current job/location.

    to each their own though..enjoy

    Unfortunately, I'm on his boat. Grant it I don't make 6 figures but I'm at least a couple hours from the beach and it blows. My goal start a business near the coast and stay there.

    My ballsack is the size of a grocery bag. Its a bit of a challenge sponging when I have to drag that thing around.

    very solid first post; made me LOL.

    Here's a modified later Ahrnold quote that also works:

    "I am cool, I am badass, blah, blah, blah"

    It takes 1 1/2 hours to get to the closest beach for me. I appreciate the locals because they are the only ones that are out when I get there at dawn. I used to be one, hopefully get to be one again.
