... I may as well explain my absurdly complicated living arrangements these days.
I live where I always have, on the family estate with the gigantic garage/workshop. I still work in Pennsylvania, because I'm still an idiot. Still commute 80 miles each way.
In addition, my fiancee, originally from California, owns a small chain of boutique (i.e. 'wealthy middle aged women are our preferred clientele') dog grooming shops in the LA area. When she relocated to Maryland with me, the move was fairly hasty and the person left in charge of said business... Wasn't entirely prepared for management, and definitely wasn't prepared for the pointy end of those particular customers.
(No, selling the business and starting over doesn't make sense for a variety of reasons, mostly related to 'debt load too high for saleable assets' and 'businesses in this industry have literally zero saleable value beyond assets, because client lists tend to follow staff')
So she has gone back for awhile to stabilize that situation, unruffle some feathers, etc. The overarching plan is for me to spend ~6.5 weeks east, 1.5 week west for the duration. In the mean time, I'm going to do some work on the house, etc.
And to make matters worse I'm now getting intermittent P0420s on the BRZ. May be coming up on catalyst lifetime...
I know this is the car stuff thread but, eventually are you looking to move west?
You should check out the Ford Flex or Lincoln MKT. those are probably the biggest not suburban vehicles and might suit your needs. They’re lower to the ground than typical crossovers too which might be better for dogs and lifting cages.
