Default How Many Miles to work or school?

Had to go into work today to grab my phone charger that I forgot on Friday rushing out for the weekend. I figured I would clock it to see how far it actually is.

Door to door I am 9.9 miles away from work and it takes me almost an hour to get in during the week. SUX

Today? 25 minutes

2.8 miles.

at least 8-20 minutes depending on traffic.


there is one road that goes thru town north to south, I live on the south side, work is on the north side. do the math

There used to be another route but it has been closed off since last summer due to construction. its good becuase they are going from 2 lanes to 6 lanes so I should be able to make it to work in 5 minutes.

26 kilometres one way; or 16.2 miles - on surface streets (80km/h), anyway. Haven't checked the highway.
