    OMG Sublime, MUST you ask this question? :-) Currently I'm driving 53 miles each way to work, on one of California's nastiest freeway, the 405. Work hours from 6.30am to 3.30am, and by the time I get home it's about 5.15pm.

    I think the longest I ever did was about 15 miles, but it took close to 45 minutes. My commute is only about 15-20 minutes now and around 7 miles.

    My commute is only about 20 miles. In the morning it takes about 45 minutes to get to work. Not too bad.

    About half an hour to forty-five minutes.

    as far as commuting to work: 15 miles each way...takes anywhere between 15 and 45 minutes depending on weather and the type of people on the road.

    but, when i was in high school i commuted 36 miles each way. private school...

    When I lived with my parents briefly during college, I commuted 30 miles to class each way. Took about 45 nminutes.

    I had to drive about 40 miles from Philadelphia to Princeton and back each day. It made the days so long I eventually had to just suck it up and move out of the city.

    But the worst was when I first graduated college -- I had to drive about 40 miles each way to a job I hated. It was second shift, so I finished around midnight, and had to drive 40 miles home on the PA turnpike, all alone and tired as all get out.

    Don't hate me--I drive only 1.5 miles to work, though surface streets, at 4:45 in the morning when there is no one else on the road.

    In the past I have driven 45 minutes or more depending on who was threatening to jump off the Narrows Bridge, or who crashed in the middle or who had to drive really, really slow across it so the wind would not blow them off. Dumb Drivers

    Although it was only one time, I once had to drive to Savannah, GA from NE PA for a work op. It only took 18 hours!

    The longest (regular) commute I ever had was about 25 miles each way. I now live about 8 miles from my work.

    I think Robert has me beat hands down. I currently only drive about ten miles one way total between leaving the house, dropping off my son and getting to work. Furthest ever was probably close to thirty miles one way when I lived in Vadnais Heights, MN and worked in another suburb at AT&T. That drive was a bitch!

    My worst commute was 30 miles each way, from one end of the metro area to the very other end. It would take from 45 minutes to two hours. It was brutal. Books on tape were the only thing that kept me from losing my mind. I eventually got a new job because I couldn't take it anymore.

    I used to drive 36 miles each way. I'll never do that again.

    I'd much rather get a job in the city and just take the train in. It is probably around the same distance but at least you don't have to deal with road rage and get caught up on reading during the commute. :)
