Default How far is your commute to work?

Looks like I'll be getting an offer on a position I've applied for with our sister company about 90 miles north of where I'm at. Plan on keeping my house here and staying with my sister a couple of nights per week and commuting some as well. I'll still have to work at my current property every Thursday anyway. So how far do you drive to work everyday?

7 miles right now. It's on a county highway, so with no traffic or street lights, takes less then 10 minutes. Farm equipment can slow things down,

This summer it was around 40 miles, went through every hick town, and took an hour.

Digging the new commute right now.

My commute is only a few blocks -like 3. Of course, I have to pick my daughter up after work and the babysitters is clear on the other side of town! Even that is only like 3 miles.

I live in Massachusetts and work in Montreal. On Mondays, I have a 250 mile commute by commercial airliner. The total trip from my house to my office takes 5 hours. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, I walk two blocks to work, and fly home Wednesday nights. On Thursdays and Fridays, I work out of my home office, so I commute about 10 feet.
