How far would you be willing to drive to work?

If you found a house you loved? I have been debating this question as my wife and I will look at house shopping soon. I want to get some land with some outbuildings if possible. Looks like I am looking at driving an hour one way, with currently what is available. I may build, but if you have priced a concrete foundation barn, it is ridiculously expensive.

So, my question is how far would you be willing to drive (one way) if you found a house/property you loved.

Yeti- I work at USAFA in the Co. Springs. I live about 90 miles from denver and 50 from the Springs. I have a couple of guys in the area that do work in Denver though. It's a solid 1.5 hour run to the SE side of Denver from here for them. I've only had to hotel it a few times though, good bosses who believe me when I say I gotta go now. If I had a job that a mandatory - no excuses - be there or be fired deal I would of been fired long ago.

A couple weeks ago I had a job offer, but driving an hour to work doesn't appeal to me when I only drive fifteen minutes now.

It's a few more schillings, but by the time I pay for gas every week I lost most of it.
My previous job it was so close I use to walk there in under 10 minutes that was sweet.

I feel the same way. I do 30 minutes to and from. I'm ok with it in the morning (unless I have an early meeting), but in the afternoon I just want to get home.

Doesn't sound too bad. Although, I'm a bit grouchy in the morning Sounds like you're the type of person who can handle that sort of thing. The small talk in the morning would kill me.

Wife drives 44 miles each way. Makes it in about 40 minutes. She's looking to get a job in town.

Mine is 6 miles, and goes anywhere from 7-12 minutes depending how zombie-ish I am. Sometimes I get on a county road and mostly sleep on the way out. It can be up to 30 minutes if I'm going to a field in BFE.

Commuting sucks. I used to have about around a 30-40 minute drive in the previous city I lived in. Many days its is not that bad but any minor wreck or bad weather can easily double the typical drive time. I moved cities and now live about a mile from the office and it is really great to have that time back and never deal with traffic.

I hated it. I thank God that I don't do that now. Like I say out loud. I am so glad my drive isn't that anymore.

I used to make a lot of money commuting like that. It's not worth money. I wouldn't spend 2 hours a day driving to and from work for any amount.

10 mins to get to work. 6 if I get a green at every stoplight. That's a long enough commute for me.

Right now its 35-45 minutes, depending on when I leave and such. Around an hour if there are issues or I leave later then normal. Its usually not a bad or stressful drive. The most I would do is 45min to an hour. Wish I lived closer, but the kind of jobs I prefer are farther away from where I live, the houses close to where those jobs are are much more expensive then where I live now. If I can get a decent promotion my ass is moving closer to work.

I'll say this about my old hour long commute:

We went the opposite way as most traffic, heading north from Ft. Collins on I25. If I'd had to go south toward Denver, I couldn't have done it. Those that have ever driven I25 when people are heading in to Denver know what I'm talking about.

If I'm in start/stop or gridlock, I slowly go insane. Driving along at a steady pace is relaxing. Bumper to bumper traffic creates stress.
