    I'm the I.T for 3 different schools, so usually ill travel to one for the morning then another for the afternoon. The farthest I go is today ( Wednesdays ) which is 40 km... roughly 30ish minutes. It sucks on the days were there is a "catastrophe" at one school and I'll have to rush there... then come back to the school I was at previously... then leave to the other school again. haha.

    45 mile, anything from 45 minutes to 80 minutes depending on traffic and sets of roadworks I hit. Soon be another 10 mile / 20 minutes when I house.

    Used to work 8 mile / 10 minutes till I changed job.

    About 3 different ways that I can go but I normally only use 2 different routes, currently using a slightly longer route which I believe is about 20 miles and that takes me about an hour to go from door to door due to traffic / speed limit being variable ie 60 mph on certain parts and then slowing down for villages for a number of parts ie 30mph and having to go through an industrial estate etc

    If I go the way I used to go then between 20 to 30 mins but due to road works etc it is taking too long to use this route which is a pita as means I am using more fuel to drive the way I have to go now.

    Distance - 38 miles on a normal day. If I have to go to meetings (regular occurrence) it can be anything from 60 to 85 miles one way.

    Takes around 55 min to get to the school.

    1.1 miles. 3 minutes in the morning and 5 on the way home. I have arthritis in my feet which is why I don't walk.
