    Right now, I commute about 25 mins to work, only about 20 miles. I am looking to possibly move out a little farther to a nicer area, but it would be a 50 mile drive, about 1 hours time. I often work EARLY (500am) to late 2100 sometimes. Will this be too much? How long is your commute?

    A friend of mine was commuting about an hour each way and listened to audio books to pass the time. I was a great way to get through a lot of books he wouldn't otherwise have time for.

    My commute right now is ~15 mins door to door which isn't too bad. When I was in San Antonio my commute was slightly less than one mile.... it was nice being able to run home for lunch.

    Mine is about 40-45 min in the morning and 60-70 min at night. Right now I don't mind it, but I have only been doing it for about 2 months. It might be more difficult if I had kids and a family though.

    45 minutes door to door, by bus & subway; or 20 minutes by car. The distance is short, but keep in mind, I'm in the city.

    Apx. Two miles, but it's usually 30min "chair to chair" no matter how I do it:
    Drive and hunt for parking space = walk = wait for bus and walk a bit

    All three of the above are faster than paying for a space the available lot, which then requires a 15min walk or a similar wait for a shuttle.

    32 miles each direction plus a 10 hour work day. Depending on traffic I can do it anywhere from 35 minutes (what,me speed?) to one hour 15 minutes, each direction......

    When I was at FoDallas I used to leave the house at 6:15 so I could open the store at 8am, close at 7pm and get home about 8:30/9:00pm six days a week. Did that for three years. But again, I was working at FoDallas. It made a difference.........

    I'm lucky in that I work an off schedule compared to most so I typically head into the office around 11am or so. 9 miles, about 12 minutes or so.

    Night commute is usually 10 minutes or less - not much traffic around 9pm. :)
