The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Worst. Commute. Ever.

Three hundred seventy miles round-trip: from home in Mariposa, California, to work in San Jose, and back again. For those of you who work in New York City, this is the equivalent of living in Providence, Rhode Island. In terms of distance, I mean.

The Census Bureau considers anything over an hour and a half to be "extreme". [Link requires Adobe Reader.] I'd hate to see how they'd characterize a trip more than four times that long.

Ugh! When i work in NYC, that's a 2 hour commute (mainly by train) and that's just plain difficult. I couldn't imagine 370 miles.
