Regular work = 70 mile round trip. Bi-monthly trip to LA for work = 4618 or so miles round trip.

Im jealous. Especially the nice drive along the water in the morning. im stuck in gridlock

I used to live in NH and it was about 47-50 Miles each way which usually took about an hour and a half sometimes 2 if someones being an *** and decides to flip their vehicle.

Before the Bonne I was driving my GF'* 04 Grand AM back and forth to work averaging almost 1000 Miles a month. Her car now has 36+k and we bought it last January

They are machines aren't they?

Less then a mile to the train station and a 25 min train ride to school.
20 miles to my work in the summer. Takes a half hour with no traffic and up to an hour in rush hour.

Work....1.5 miles. Anywhere between 1 and two minutes depending on how late I am.

School 10 miles. Depends on traffic, it is either pretty much gridlocked (nothing I can do to get there faster) so it takes 30-40. At night I can do it in 10 or less.
