80 miles round trip. I don't mind it because I love to drive my car. I love driving in general, especially a 5-spd e46. Morning commute has no traffic, afternoon commute is a different story.

I hate driving to/from work
I work including coffee stop 8 min from work.
Works good I thought about going to work downtown (1hr+) but $10hr isn't worth it
I'm Better off putting the additional time spent driving working OT and at end of day make more money

Not even mentioning the efficiencies of larger countries.

2.0 miles in a 25 zone that you can drive 30 in. Or 2.1 miles where I could average 45 if I really tried.

Hour and fifteen minutes on the train. I pay $30 per month after worry covers a large portion of it. Zero traffic, zero fuss. And at 430, I have to be leaving the office.

If you can un bolt it from the car then you will probably have to replace it. I think that covers it.

25 miles each way if I'm just going to the office, which I never do. I usually log about 80 miles a day. The 25 mile ride home takes about 50 minutes. The ride there is about 35.
