Oct 15, '07I will be driving about 35 miles each way starting in the Spring. I'm in the evening program so I will hopefully beat morning and afternoon traffic. I haven't driven up there yet but my guess it will take about 45 mins to an hour.
Oct 16, '07mapquest says its an hour..ha!! I95 in connecticut..takes me about 2 hours in morning..if I get out early enough, its an hour/ hour and a half..when you want something bad enough and its soo togh to get in, I would do this drive again..I do it 3x a week..and my poor teens keep busy helping with the little ones, getting them off the bus, homework, even starting dinner sometimes.hubby works 2 full time jobs, its crazy here, but...only 19 more months of this!!! sooo worth it
Oct 16, '07I drive 74 miles each way and it is on a mountain. Last semester I totaled my truck driving to school because we had a test and my school is 3000 feet in elevation lower than I am and it was sunny and clear there, but where I live we got five inches of snow on top of a really bad layer of ice. I try to look at it as, with all the driving I do, I was bound to have an accident in 2 years of school and I just got it out of the way early on. I have two nursing schools that are within 15 miles of me, but I will be done in Dec. 2008 where I attend and wouldn't have started until August 2008 for either of those programs!
Oct 16, '07I drive 55 miles in 50 minutes into NYC. More if there's traffic on the bridge. I listen to my iPod on the radio, or book mp3s. I find it's good to decompress/unwind on the trip home.
