Mar 4, '05I 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.
Mar 4, '05Personally, 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.
Mar 4, '05I 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
