    Default How many "road warriors"?

    Just wondering. I spend a lot of time on the road for my job and that's what got me into the RD thing.

    I used to commute about 60 miles to work but now I'm averaging about 200 miles a trip.

    Having countermeasures makes for a more interesting trip. Talk radio and a CB radio...

    My trip to work is about 10 miles. My trip to school is about 5 miles. Not much of a road warrior here.

    x2, I love driving though... I am more of a road warrior on my bike then in my car oddly enough.





    Its 4-5Miles to work, and maybe 8-10 for school.

    Except when I go to see my GF at HER school its ~170miles.




    My mom is though: Last year she put ~51,200 MILES on her car (no joke). (About 90% of that are work related).

    Damn! Your mother drives a lot!

    I would not like it if I had to commute to wotk everyday. Short trips are fine, but anything over 1 hour would not be my friend.

    You aren't kidding, she often has round-trips of 300 or 350miles in a single day.

    my commute to the office si only 15 miles but I do travel alot for my job so I do a lot of driving mostly in the midwest anything farther and I fly.

    talk radio and the CB are definitely entertaining...

    I have to travel for my job, but we are very slow now. I haven't travelled in about 6 mnths or so. When i started 5 years ago, I would be out 5 weeks out of 8. I travel mostly in NC.

    Some days, I'll get 0 because I live on Campus. I used to average 30 miles a day last year because of different College and had to drive from home.
