Default Who has to drive a long way to work today

I have to drive an hour and a half to Dewitt today (about 80 miles), then to Kentucky (about 300) next week....

Can anyone top 300miles?


P.*. I really hope my UIM doesn't fail in Kentucky....

i used to commute 74 miles each way which at times ended up being OVER 2.5 hours believe it or not. the hutch, whitestone, cross island and southern state parkway were all parking lots.

i currently go < 5 miles each way. it'* nice.

Dewitt, eh? My wife'* family is from Dewitt. You can call them Dewitidiots... Nice little community.

My longest commute was 81 miles one way. I did that drive for 10 months, then knocked it down to the 62 miles one way. I did 90% of all that driving in our old 93 SE. The 2.97 gear ratio was PERFECT for the highway cruising.

Off today, but normally my commute would be 3.5 miles. Only that long cuz I have to drop the dog off at the sitter on the way.
