Commuting. What's yours to work?

It's killing me.
2hrs to get to work, less than that to go home, depending on the time.

What's everyone elses?
For those that work at home...yah, yah, I do envy you..."It's a walk down the hall", etc...

But for drivers...anyone near my insanity?

45-60 mins depending on traffic. About 25 miles, 90% highway driving. And I'm sick of it, need a closer job so my warranty can last longer

My commute is about 10 miles (from NJ into NYC). Fortunately, I don't have to drive very often. A bus and one subway ride results in a 45 min commute. If I drive it takes closer to 90 min to 2 hours during rush hour. Coming home has taken me as long as 3 hours (stuck at the Lincoln Tunnel).

Nikki I think you'd be better off walking, jogging or biking to work.

Get 2 miles of exercise/day, save gas and don't have to deal with traffic!
