    Currently I drive 60 minutes in the morning to get to work and about 120 minutes to get home. so i commute about 3 hours a day. i'm going nuts. but now I'm looking at a new condo and the commute will be about 30 minutes each way. not the best, but it's in a good area, it's a nice condo, and it's well within my budget. The only downside is that it's 30 minutes from work. But the closer i move to work, the higher the cost goes. getting close to Seattle is expensive so you have to live in the suburbs.

    B, I know you sit at home and work in your underwear so you don't count. but how much does everybody else commute? Thoughts and input please!

    and i should mention that my times are doing WELL above the speed limit.

    if i drove the posted 55 to the office, and the 25 on the back roads from my house to the highway, and the highway to my office, it would take well over 2 hours.



    and lately, its been in the craparu...... not the m. so, yeah, it sucks.

    15-25 min walk to class depending on where the class is.

    But when I start work in September it will be completely random because 90% of the time I will be at a client's site. It could be anything from walking (I'm only moving about a block away and UCLA is a client) to 2hrs+. The office is in downtown LA, so like 45 mins w/traffic if I leave early.

    44 miles each way give a lil bit, I always forget to start the trip meter when I leave the new house until like 10 minutes into the drive, but it usually takes about 50-60 minutes without traffic and doing bout 90 on the highway and 45 in the cities.
