Mine's ~52 minutes; 15 minutes through city, the rest is all interstate.  Yours?

BTW, If you have the luxury of working from home...I hate you.  :smileyhappy:

Well, my husband works from home, and I duly hate him for it. :smileywink:

I commute between 40-60 minutes depending on traffic. Two days a week I take the interstate and three days a week I take the highway (my son's preschool is by my office, I'd rather take the highway with him in the car because the interstate drivers tend to be more aggressive and I'm overprotective like that). My new office is right off the interstate, so, no more driving through the city for me.

Haha... audio books put me to sleep... so, yeah, I've tried them... on nights when I can't quite get to sleep on my own.

Between walking, train, and bus anywhere from an hour plus to a little over 30 minutes.

Commute? What's that?

 

(I currently work from my home office ... I have a bigger challenge making myself get breakfast eaten before 8:00 am.)

25-30 minutes unless I do something foolish like hit rush-hour traffic, then it's 1.5hours.

Average is 15 minutes with 2-3 min wait getting in the gate and showing ID. Six lane hyw once I leave the subdivision up to the gate then 2 lanes. One thing going for me is the road is blocked off right at the entrance of the parking lot every morning (Mon-Fri)  for the soldiers to run/jog/walk. Weekends that I work I have to drive another 3 miles to get to another gate as the one I use Mon-Fri is closed at that time of the day.

Being a self-employed forester somedays I work in the at home office and other days I am in the field.  Travel is a variety to different woodlot properties and clients, usually within 30  to 45 minutes, and then on foot sometimes to the work site.  Travel I-95, state highways, town roads, back roads, and private roads and walk in the woods alot.   I avoid the traffic as much as possible, travel 30 to 100 miles a day and walk up to six hours a day.  Beats the desk when the weather is good.
