What is your daily commute?

Possibility that may have a job 80 miles from home. Fingers crossed I get it, but its just shy of 2 hours away. reckon i can commute it daily providing im on the right shift, but petrol will eat in funds etc.

im happy to stay over & maybe break up the week, but just wondering if others out there do a bigger daily commute.

Sometimes 220 miles each way ( couple of times a month) and then a 12 hour day!

Don't stay over, Come home every night.

Im self employed, my 1st job can be a few doors away :thumbsup:, but mostly its about a mile "commute" to my first job, furthest I travel is about 5 miles. I reeeaaaaly dont see any point in working 80 miles away. Think of all that time of your precious life, sitting, waiting, not even earning a penny. The only job I can imagine to justify travelling 80, would be a beer taster, computer game tester, or gigolo to pretty ladies. :thumbsup:

Couldn't you take a train or coach? At least that way you could rest on the journey?
Mines a 10 min drive, 35 min train and 20 mins walk, each way.......but I only work two days lucky me!!!

We are in Essex, my friend works in Birmingham, he drives up Sunday night and lodges until Thursday, does overtime so that he can leave for the drive home Friday lunchtime. but he doesn't have a family. I wouldn't be happy if my husband did that, although he often has to travel for work it's luckily only a 1 or 2 night hotel stay.

My OH is a contractor so regularly works some distance away. Furthest was America, he came home Friday night, landed UK Sat 8am and took the 8pm flight back on Sunday landing at 6am to go straight into work on Monday. He did this for 5 months and came home every weekend. He has worked in Germany, France, Sweden and Tunisia, but is currently working in the Midlands staying in digs Monday to Friday cos the commute just got too much travelling nearly 5 hours a day!!

If you get the job, consider going by train and maybe staying over a couple of nights, otherwise you might start hating the job because of the hours spent travelling.

I don't work at the moment so I am lucky that I don't have to commute.

I don't like it and prefer to work close to home.

nice to read about someone who is willing to go to these lengths to work and gain something that will benefit them. A few on here could learn from you OP.

Good luck with it all :)

Mate of mine used to travel daily between Swansea > Reading (Train, approx 150 miles each way) it lasted about 2 years and he now has a really good job/salary because of it.


Are you still enjoying the good life? x x
