My work is 30 miles away, but it has its own bus shuttle that is 5 miles away. So I drive a total of 10 miles a day.

47 miles each way, half of it through downtown traffic. It sucks, especially if there is a game/event downtown or bad weather. Couldn't argue the pay/promotion though.

Thanks guys for the replies. Seems that other are on the same boat as well. Do you find it difficult? I mean do you catch yourself wanting to sleep?? I know that in time i'll get used to it but really my main concern is falling asleep on the return

maybe it's a bay area thing, I know plenty of people with insane commutes. Without trying I can think of 5 people who commute 120 to 140 miles round trip every day. Yesterday I talked to a guy who is going 108 miles each way!

not something I would want to do regularly

The office is 5 miles from my house but I don't usually go in. I travel most of the time so the airport is a 1 hr train ride away.
