My new job is about 10 miles from my house - a 15 minute drive pretty much at best and worst of times. I don't have to get on a freeway or anything. It's a VERY pleasant drive along the river.
A number of people have asked me if I am going to move closer to my job...
I don't understand people some days. Don't they know that when I lived in CA I used to dive 60 miles ONE WAY to work and often have to give myself 3 hours to get there because LA traffic is not predictable.
I also have mentioned to people when they have been in the same section of town according to me, that they should have stopped by and when they ask where my work is they are like "oh, that's like forever away from where I was" it was no more than 20 blocks ever!
I don't think I will ever understand Oregonians ideas of far away or what's a decent commute time.
Off to work... yes on that REALLY long drive that puts me there long before you'll be able to read this and post.
