    Just wondering how many miles do you commute to work. Mine is 75 miles round trip. Car pool with my bride, I drop her off and go to my place of work then pick her up at the end of the day it is 75 miles.. gets old for an old man like me. Plus gas is expensive. The sad thing is I have done this most of my working life.

    that sucks. One of the only good things about working midnights is that i go in when everyone else is going home, and leave when everyone else comes in. 0 traffic...

    Almost 80 miles exactly... Sucks but not as bad as not having a scheduled weekend off in 7 years...

    My last couple of jobs were like that. My primary territory was out in the desert so I was rolling against traffic both ways.
    Hated driving east in the morning, but I was usually on my way home well before the sun got low in the west.
