Live next to the water and keep your ship in the nearest marina, at a walking distance from your house. Trust me, it works, I've tried. :tease:

But houses 80 miles further into the desert are cheaper and only 65 miles from work. This means the money I save on the house I can spend on other things, like fuel getting to work!

I'd see it the other way round. The fuel saved by living closer to work can be put towards a more expensive house, and the two hours a day saved by going 60 miles less twice can be put towards whatever. Besides, you'd end up living in a desert :yawn:

All the environmental benefit is just an added bonus, you'd save about 40kg or 20m? or 706ft? of CO2 a day :tease: 200km less a day, 200g/km for an economic American car

Living closer to work puts you in a more expensive, yet smaller, house.

Plus living in the desert means you can mess around with one of these.

You can do that on the beach too ;) And you get a beach breeze and a 20+ degree drop in temp over the desert. And girls in bikini's (or if you go that way men in speedo's).
