    I was just wondering how far everyone here has to travel to work. My job got transfered out of state, now I am driving an hour and a half to two hours each way to work. They might me put me in a hotel but I don't feel like sitting in a hotel all week. Work sucks.

    It takes me about 20 minutes to drive to work, 3 miles of dirt road and about 10 miles of highway.

    it takes me 1 hour to 90 min.s each way depending on traffic. it used to take me 90min.s to 2 hours before my company offered to pay for express toll road fees (i told them i was quitting).

    i read an article about traffic here in the LA area and alot of peeps here commute 2 to 3 hours each way. and that is stop-and-go. on rainy nights, add another 30 mins to an hour cause peeps out here dont know how to drive in the rain. one time i counted 4 accidents on the way home!

    I live about 4 miles from my work place, takes me about 4-5 mins by car to and from work. and why I ride my bicycle to work it's about 30min to work and 15mins home.
    not to shabby. but I won't be enjoying that for much longer, I'm moving in Nov.

    It only takes you 20 minutes to get from Longmont to Boulder? Damn traffic must be nothing at 0 Dark 30. When I was taking that commute at 7:30 or 8 it was 45 minutes.

    Now my commute is 20 in heavy traffic, 10-15 w/o traffic.

    OK, it's more like 25 on a normal day, but if I hit the lights right, I'm there in 20.
