    I can't answer this for you. However, I drive an 1 1/2 to my job. This is not because I can't find a job closer (I pass several hospitals on the way to my job). It is because I want to work in pediatrics and the only children's hospital in my area is this far away. So far, the drive is not bothering me that bad. If I am particularly tired after my shift, I take a nap for an hour or two before leaving the hospital.

    Personally, I hate long drives to work. Had a job once where It took me about 40 or 45 minutes to work. It got old and I hated it.
    That's just me, tho. I don't mind long drives for sight seeing, or vacationing....I enjoy those kind of drives, but not everyday to work.
    So only you can decide what to do.

    I can drive in 30min - but ride a bushbike in 50min. at peak hour the time to ride is the same as drive - I use the travel time as the destress for the day so that I am not taking work home with me - when I get home it is home time. If I where 5 minutes from work my wife would get pretty sick about hearing about the day :chuckle
