      2.8 miles; 6 minutes on terrible city roads (pot hole here, pot hole there, random construction, broken down jalopy, onto New Deal Act brick streets, fox hole here, fox hole there) with the worlds most ridiculous drivers (heads up their a$$es, driving way too fast or preposterously slow, no blinkers, speed up thru yellow lights, sun in the eyes, college students darting across the most busy street in town, etc.)

      I have only totaled one Audi A4...knock on wood! (Stopped at a red light for 20 seconds, look in the rear view and see Law School Student coming about 45 mph in a 4x4 Toyota Tacoma, never hits breaks...goodbye 9 month old Audi) Thumbs up their a$$es!!!!
      The carpet pissers did this?!

      My commute is either eight minutes or twenty-eight minutes, depending on which location I have that day.

      Assuming I am working at the main office, a short drive to the train station (about 10 minutes), then about an hour of train ride into the city.

      I didn't mind this commute most days. Pass by Sherwood Country Club, see all the millions of dollars in homes I'll never afford, see some film crews virtually every day. I think We Bought a Zoo was filmed right there. Always saw cool cars, too.

      Then, as I got closer to my apartment I'd hit some alright twisties and usually see BMW test cars on their way home from the Oxnard facility. I'd see a 7 series hydrogen a lot and other test vehicles in camo quite often. My apartment was out in the boonies and just a few miles from the ocean. I loved it!



      Now I commute about 9 miles on the side road of the tollway. Boring.

      25 miles on I-80 in the opposite direction of the NYC rush hour traffic. I could leave my cruise control on 70 and fall asleep.

      2 hr commute for me.

      15 min drive to the train. Just over an hour on NJeffinTransit. Then 20 or so on the subway.

      I work from home, so 13 steps to the office. Then it's the GS350 in non-traffic situations to appointments, and home before rush hour.

      I win!

      On a good day I leave work at 4:02PM, get to car at 4:06 and am home by 4:10. On a bad day I get to my car at 4:08 and don't get home until like 4:25. I only live like 4KM from work and about 500 cars try to get onto the same road all at once.

      Getting to work isn't too bad, I leave around 5:40AM and am in the building by around 5:52AM.

      I commute 3.5 miles.

      But when my local office building is closed, I have to commute 70 miles to work.

      Me, 9 miles of twisty country roads, no lights, no stop signs. And I'm a police officer in the department that covers both jurisdictions I have to drive through

      So, I want to know what all the work at home guys do? I must re-route my education to accommodate.

      My commute is about 1/4 mile and takes about 5 minutes. And yes I usually drive even though it is a better idea to just ride a bicycle (which I used to do often until laziness kicked in).

      I usually spend 2-3 days a week at home. I am in sales so I use those days to catch up on quotes, set up appointments etc.

      My commute involves two taxis, two Airbus 319s and takes about 10 hours with checkin and layovers included. In that time I cover about 4000 km and go from warming my toes in the Indian ocean to freezing them off in the South Atlantic.

      Probably fill out online survey all day at home.

      I'll put this on the table. If you can walk to work, then you don't have a commute.

      Freelance graphic designer, print & web. Worked 14 years for someone else, struck out on my own almost 3 years ago. It has its ups and downs but my quality of life is 100x better and I spend a ton of time with my son now.
