Albief 15 makes some good points. However, it's (dare I say) not all about money. Knowing every month you can be home for whatever it may be (anniversary, kids birthday/event, family event, holiday, you name it) & not have to go through "if I can get this line..., if I can arrange my training..., if I call in sick will I get in trouble".......It all comes down to priorities. Does money (& perhaps ego) lure you to chase the next higher paying seat mean more to you than reducing your stress level & knowing every month your chances are way better of being a father & be able to attend whatever is going on at home by staying senior in a lower paying seat than hoping all the holes in the Swiss cheese line up? It never has been for me. Stay senior in a lower paying seat (especially if you're a commuter), dramatically reduce your stress level, be present for family events, control your expenses.....you'll come out the other end way happier.....IMHO.

Default Base MEM, live Lit?

Related question in the commuting arena...Does anyone have any experience basing out of MEM but living in Little Rock? I think that's a two hour drive. Can you sit reserve at home with that, or is it too far by just that much?

If we could negotiate a wider reserve radius (3 hours?) for even 50% of our reserves the property values in Oxford, Little Rock, and a bunch of other places would probably pop big time.
