    Awesome! I do sometimes wish I could like that close to work...I think I like having a bit of land better though.

    I drive an average of about 125 miles a day. Being a field tech for a security company, I usually spend my days driving from one customer to another repairing their security systems. And since we do work all over the state of Arizona, sometimes I can have a 3 hour drive just to get to my 1st job of the day. Lucky though it is in a company truck that they pay all the gas and maintenance. My gas bill last month alone was $1,142.16

    I too drive between 100 and 130 miles a day. I work for the worker's comp insurance rating bureau in CA - it's an independent company that does all the rating for worker's comp insurance for the state. My job is to drive to businesses all over the LA area, find out what they do, how they do it, # of employees, etc., and do up a written report. I hit between 15 and 20 a week...still, it's a good job, and endlessly fascinating. I've seen the inside of so many businesses now, places I'd never have gone otherwise.

    Thankfully I've got a company car and they pay gas (even for personal use; I only pay income tax on my personal use of the car) so all in all it's a good deal. At this point I'm still SO thankful to have found a job, I was out of work for a year and a half.

    I read all the posts and then... Spam FTL.

    I'll reply anyway though. I often drive 0 miles. I ride a bicycle to and from work and around town when the weather cooperates. The drive to work is 4.4 miles round trip if I can't bike. If I need to drive somewhere else, it generally isn't more than a 10 mile round trip. It's pretty rare that I ever leave the metropolitan area...which is sad now that I think of it. I need a vacation.
    I'll procrastinate tomorrow.

    Perhaps I should rephrase the question then.

    How far do you travel in a day? The point of the poll was/is to gather metrics from a more diverse group. Method of travel is really not important.

    I travel a day 22 miles each way to work then errands probably adds another 15-20 ish miles.
    I think we can make that fit.

    lol. at 152k miles now, 1 year after purchase.
