Well I did hit traffic today, there was an accident in the hallway (spilled coffee) and traffic was backed up for tiles.
All total my commute is well I don't commute I live in my studio so when I step through the doorway of my bedroom I am at work.

Fifteen minute walk each way. I could catch a bus but prefer to get some exercise.

2.5 hours EACH way, after my company decided to move the offices to (admittedly) nicer and (accidentally) cheaper location. I am considering working from home or quitting...

OK, for the OUTSIDE workers I think I am the winner for the shortest distance :  2,5 minutes by car, or 1100 meters (yes meters!).  Yes I know I could walk that distance easily, but (1) this is Belgium and that means LOTS OF RAIN, and (2) I do my shopping right after work and for that I need the car (good excuse?).

we live "way out of town" (about 25km) and it takes about 20 minutes if I dont get stuck behind the school bus (too often lately :() sometimes we see another car and have to sit behind it too.  we are thinking about moving closer because we spend too much time travelling.

I knew there more things than humor that Locke and I have in common. Sorry to go off topic, kind of, but I used to drive down the street, through a park, and three or four blocks into the industrial park. Less than two miles. Now I've made it even shorter. (not intentionally) Recliner - across room - computer desk.

across the bedroom, upsatirs hallway, down the stairs to the office and basement studio.....the biggest pile ups happen when the cat or the dog decide to race me down the stairs, usually tripping me in the process. pretty sweet working from home, I have been freelancing full-time for about six years.

As I was driving home from work yesterday, I thought it would be interesting to see who has the longest total commute to/from work.  This means you must add up the time it takes to get to work and again the time to get home. 

My commute time is 80 minutes everyday, going 100 kilometers per hour driving 95% on the highway.

Well I've traveled about 22,000 miles through 13 countries over the last 8 months to get where I am now, but I have been working in between ;)... on a daily basis it takes about as long as I need to open my eyes and stagger out of bed.

It takes me about five minutes to get from home to the studio. I used to work a lot from home but now we've expanded I seem to spend more and more time at the studio. It's pretty cool place to work so I don't mind at all. Surprised to see so many people working from home.

Interesting Phil. Do you have increased productivity/income as a direct result of having the studio that more than compensates for the increased overhead that comes with it?

Living in the UK where commercial property costs are sky-high it doesn't seem like a practical possibility at all for me __ especially when it is not my intention to work my arse off. After 4 years of work I reckon that my existing microstock income, which I can live in reasonable comfort from, might just about cover the costs of rent & rates for a small commercial unit.

When I talked about work, I meant my real work.  Now when it comes to photography, my work can be in my room or on the other side of the world, so commuting time may vary A LOT.  ;D

On Monday, Tuesday and every other Friday I work from home.  On other days it's 3 hours round trip (90 minutes each way) and a total of about 140 miles. (Around 70 miles each way)  I'm quite thankful for those work-at-home days! :)
