    How far do you drive on your commute?

    I drive 80 RT per day. But only work 4 days a week,Sun-Wed. And opposite of traffic or there would be no way I would want that commute.

    Note:
    I can't change the poll. So if you leave your house & drive less than a mile. Pick the 1-10mile catergory.

    I used to work 1.2 miles away. Then my boss changed the office location and now I commute 38 miles to work. And No, they did not compensate anyone for this move. :(

    Note I do not work offshore so when I arrive it could be a month before I have to drive home. So its not bad. Hell I had a tank of gas last me a month and a half.

    Nothing at the moment
    Old drive to work = 8 miles and 40 minutes
    New drive to work = 18 miles and 25 minutes

    Not a bad change

    Yeah, if I put zero then someone would have a comment that 0 & work from home are the same thing. If you have to leave your house you would fall in the 1-10. Maybe I need to change that to 0.1-10. Thanks for the update you lucky commuter.:)

    From North Hollywood to Newbury Park, straight down the 101 rush hour. It's about 33 miles i think. I only do this a few days out of the week, the other days it's only a 5 min drive for me.
