    I just retired so I do not commute any longer. Prior to retirement it was 65 total.

    about 2 1/2 minutes from my barracks to my desk at the hospital, minus a stop at the chow hall for breakfast and the Shopette for Redbull (sugar free).

    Edit: thats walking.

    I moderate the forum. Doesn't pay anything, hours can be weird, but I havent filled my car with gas for 2 weeks and I still have half a tank left.

    I also tend to my 9 parrots and clean the cat puke from the 5 cats that moved in with us.

    I have a wonderful life. I have a Droid.

    148 miles round-trip. This is my first post, but commuting is such a large part of my life, I couldn't help myself. I've lurked, and joined awhile ago. Have read alot and learned alot from so many people. I use my droid at night before I go to sleep to see what's happening here. Can't wait for audible.com to get an android app, til then I'm keeping my Ipod Touch very busy....

    I am about 20 minutes each way. All back roads so its consistent whether its the dead of winter for the middle of the summer.
