    180 miles round trip. Been doin' it for 12 years. This year my boss told me I could work from home two days a week so that helped a lot. Love my job and the great company I work for. I might add I am paid well. Thought about retiring and I could tomorrow if I chose, but the money is too good and as I said...love my job.

    To be exact it's 36 feet. The distance from bedroom, to bathroom, to den. :D

    11 miles round trip in a city of 35,000 so it's 10-15 minutes each way. Remember, life is measured in years, but years are made up of days, hours and minutes. It's your time. How do you want to spend it? The more time you are on the road, the greater your chances of being involved in an automobile accident. Statistically speaking, it shortens your life span. Two hours is nine holes of golf or any other activity you might enjoy.

    Sounds like you came to a good conclusion - I'd be in a much better place now had I done that, but my wife and I allowed the emotional side to rush us into a purchase at the exact wrong time. It's all good, but it could always be better :D

    20 miles, round trip. With 95% of that at 65mph.
    Been at this place for quite a while. First job that my commute didn't involve crossing a large river, by bridge and/or tunnel and the included traffic backups.
    Maybe that's why I've stayed here so long.

    I count myself as lucky, less than 6 miles round-trip.
    Most of the time I come home for lunch.

    My old job was 55 miles each way, unless there was construction or the lift bridge was out. If I had to detour around the bridge, then it was 69 miles each way. At least it was evenings/nights so the traffic was light, I'd never have done that job on day shift. I kept telling myself that I couldn't afford a house where I worked, and there were no jobs where I lived. I got laid off from that job, and found one that was 21 miles from home each way, I didn't realize how much stress the drive was causing me until I wasn't spending 3+ hours a day in the car. (It's 25 minutes or so each way, now unless the lift bridge is out... stupid bridge)

    I'm 19 miles from work. I can get there in 20-25 minutes most days. I'm very lucky that the bulk of the traffic is going the opposite direction to me. If I lived where I worked and worked where I lived my commute time would be close to double.

    We mainly work out of our home but have an office less than 5 miles away in an
    old mansion. Otherwise we drive around some in the greater Nashville area as
    we own a real estate company. With modern technology we don't drive nearly
    as much as we did a few years ago.

    My daily commute has become longer since I went back to school and stopped working. The bus journey in the morning takes roughly half an hour, and it takes roughly fifty minutes for me to get home. I think the distance is about fifteen miles

    I'll chime in here... lots of travel for me. 45 minutes and about 45 miles! Pure interstate, back and forth. It's better than the hour and a half (one way) that I did several years ago!

    I kind of miss it though!
