In addition, I did it Monday through Friday for approximately 12 months.
At the time I lived in Bakersfield and attended school in the San Fernando Valley (Van Nuys). In my opinion, a 31 mile commute is a drop in the bucket.

You're right, 30 miles can take long; I do 25 miles and it's about 1 hour 15 minutes with the morning rush hour. I think it's all about dedication and always envisioning the end-goal always in mind. Some good music to jam and sing to while on the road doesn't hurt too.
