Default Commuting from Upper Peninsula Michigan

Anyone here commute from either SAW or CMX? What would be the best regional and base if I commuted out of either? (I'm looking at Skywest) Don't judge, yes I want to live in the upper peninsula of Michigan. Just not sure on a quality of life standpoint if it would be worth it. Looking for advice/opinions. Currently a CFI. Thanks!

SAW is currently a MX base for Envoy. We do tons of flights from there to ORD which is a junior base. Look at Envoy.

SkyWest dominates the UP. SAW/MQT, CIU, ESC, IMT, CMX, etc with flights to three SkyWest bases (MSP, ORD, DTW). Would be foolish to go anywhere else unless they're buying you a ticket on SkyWest to go to work.

SkyWest is a no brainer in your situation.
