Topic - How far would you travel daily for work ?

New POD - on 07 Feb 2013
Here's the thing. My job is as a Freelance Manuafacturing Engineer.

In 3 years I've had contracts in Telford, and the East Midlands, both of which are in excess of 2 hours and 100 miles each way, so no discussion.

Current contract is 1 hour and 65 miles if I leave the house at 6 am, but 1.25 to 2 hours in the evening, but would probaly average 1.5 hours.

That would get me home at 6.30, but knackered and grumpy after motorway madness had been inflicted on me. So I rent digs 4 nights a week.

Just met 3 guys in the office who travel similar distances and can't understand why I choose not to go home every night to my wife.

I comute for 2 hours daily if it were an easy train ride at a reasonable cost, because I could read the paper and listen to music and drink coffee, but to me it's just extra risks everytime I go on the motorway.
