How far would you be willing to commute to work on a daily basis to live in a private water ski development much like you see in Waterski Magazine and other watersport enthusiast media sources?

I've already got close to a 45-60 min drive.

I've done the 45-60 minute commute before. It's not too bad - gives you some good quality down time with your car and tunes... The only problem is when an accident/construction/bad weather turns your 45 minute commute into a 2 hour commute :mad:

My commute now is between 45-75 minutes depending on what time I leave and I'm not on the water now. I would easily do 60-90 minutes to have water access.

The hospital where I work is on the same lake I live on. It's a 5 minute drive by boat or car. Personally, I'd have concerns about living on a ski development. So many rules, and there seems to be a lot of neighbor issues about lake use - it's a different concept of lake living than what we're used to. I'm happy to have to only answer to the Sheriff rather than have my neighbors dictating how I can use the water. Seems like there are always contentious issues between various neighborhood factions about things like wake, length/type of boat, hours of use, etc.

Of course, this is the land of 10,000 lakes, so we have the luxury of greater accessibility to lake living.

Also weigh in the other factors like how close to church, how close to kids baseball, soccer, basketball, etc, and will the whole family enjoy the ski lake living. Is the ski lake isolated to everything else or close by everything.

I think my kids would not like the lake unless they could tube on it often! 8p

If I could find about 100 acres, I would dig myself about an 80 acre lake
and have my OWN ski village. Complete with an in-water boat house with QUICK lift, a UMP sized game room with a huge bar, ping pong,pool tables, plasma big screen, stripper pole, a giant walk in beer cooler stocked of course, and of course, a bevy of Hooters girls to help keep all this clean & pretty! Wake up you fool! You're dreaming again!:confused: :D

I drive 55-80 min as it is, so why not drive the same and live on the water.

I drive 45 minutes to an hour (about 45 miles) one way and would drive twice that if I could live on a slalom lake and have my boat on the lift to drop in for sets at any time.

Just build a 30 acre lake and double the size of the game room and strip section, add a hot tub in the lap dance room, next to the float up bar and massage parlor!:eek:

I have over an hour commute now and would be willing to drive a little longer if it meant there would be skiing at the end of the drive.

I drive a solid hour with limited traffic right now to Chicago MasterCraft. I'd drive a bit farther if I could live on the water.

1-1.5hrs is nothing to work. I commute about 45min now, and I don't think that's too bad. (35miles 1 way)

I voted never because the weather in Bakersfield where the lake is, is too extreme for me to live comfortably in. It was sooo hot the past two days and this coming weekend it is supposed to hit 112. No thanks! I'll live at the coast, work at the coast and drive 1 1/2 hrs to ski a few days a week. B
