43 miles each way to and from work every day starts to drag. 22k/year just to get to work. At least its all highway.

That's literally nothing. I did 52 miles each way in NJ.

No thanks on a commute that long. I would either move or find a different job.

I could not agree more !!

I take the "long" way to work every day.. not many things more enjoyable then open, winding roads at 6am before stepping into the office

I was living at home and making $42/hr as an electrician when I was 18-20. It was worth it.

I like to hike and snow board as well and some of the good places to do that are not near the coast... but on TV, which is how most tourist base their ideas... you see those states in particular.

FYI, I didn't actually take this drive. I drew the line to equal the 13000 miles I've driven, and where those miles could have taken me if it was a road trip.
