How far is too far, driving 90min every direction to work counts as normal? (actually driving)

    For me, that would be too much. I would have accepted that in the past but i had my share of driving to workplaces and i don't want it anymore.

    Ps: thanks to the guy who invented the audio book.

    Don't do that for more than a year. If they don't pay you enough to live less than an hour away, get a new job.

    Depends, do you like driving?

    Way too far imo. I live in North Dakota, there are no true urban areas (literally not one metro area over 200,000 population) and I consider a half hour to be too long to commute.

    Well in London on a good day it would take me 2 hours to get to work, on a bad day, 4 hours..

    And that's only going from A to B inside London !

    I did see a job in the nearest town to me, but that's 5 hours away..

    As such I think I need a camper van, then I can drive to work, and sleep overnight to do a 4 day week..

    I should add, for those who don’t know rural lifestyle - it’s quite common for folks here to commute to other cities for work. A normal commute to hear of is 45m. Fine for you if enjoy driving and listening to podcasts/audio books, but for me, never.

    Yeah it's actually the traffic and not the distance, 25miles in 90min avarage.....
