My brother has had to take a job five hours away from his home. He lives near work on weekdays and comes home on weekends. It’s not a fun life, but it’ll be the status quo until the real estate market picks up.
In any case, he’s found some tools to help make his remote life easier on both him and his family while allowing him to take care of more tasks while on the road so he can spend more time with family on the weekend. He posted about it over at Mind Like Monkey.
