    It is unfortunate that your clinicals are so far away. You can make good use of this time by bringing along a tape recorded. Use this to record things to do, thoughts for your students etc. On the way home you can dictate your summary of the students clinical performance for the day as well as yours. I've also found on long drives that audio books make the time go faster.
