Thread: Who has the longest commute?

  1. #31

    360 miles each way

    Well looks like I may be the winner so far. My Commute is 360 miles each way so 720 round trip. Live in St. George, UT and work as a Fireman in Lancaster, CA. LA County. Actually rode in last night for a 24hr shift and headed home in the morning.

    You do seem to be the king of the commute


    There has to be a back story to that set up

    I realize it seems crazy to most people but we work 24hr shifts. I trade my days around so I typically work a 4 on 8 off shift. So I'll work a 96hr shift then go home for 8 days. I'm not going back and forth everyday. The 2 other Engineers at the station I work at commute also. One lives in Boise, ID the other in Houston, TX. We have a bunch of Firemen commuting from out of state. Not uncommon around here. I was born and raised in St. George and there isn't a better place to raise a family in my opinion so the small inconvenience of my commute is well worth it.

    I was thinking the 8 on -8 off shifts as I have a few water squirter buddies...Don't get many "callouts" like power linemen do. They frowned on me moving too far out of town
    Good for you...the guy in Houston however...wow!

    83 miles one way five to seven days a week. I travel from Ortonville, MI to Lansing, MI. Lots of easy-going slab and farm fields. 76000+ miles on my 1999 R1100RT and increasing almost daily, for now.

    Depending on whether I start in the bedroom or the kitchen it is about 15 steps to the desk. But that isn't really a commute because I retired 10 years ago. But from the house to the shop is at least 250 feet, but that too isn't a commute unless fixing my own bike, or Voni's is a "job".

    When I did last work it was 42 miles each way - Mon-Fri - but that hardly counts now days.

    There are folks that work in the AK North Slope oil fields that live in Oklahoma and Tennessee (maybe some that live further away as well). That's about a 4000 mile commute, one way. Of course they don't do it everyday. Most work six weeks on, six weeks off.

    Mine is 50 miles, one way, on back roads, with over 60 traffic lights, or 70 miles, one way, interstate. No good option for me.

    72 Miles each way (144 round) 5 days a week. Live in Gainsville VA. and commute to Fort Meade MD. All the joys of DC traffic - 66 to 495 to 32...

    Short one for me

    Mine is 7.3 miles, city side streets, not much traffic on the way in, some on the way home. I commute for the most part on my K1200 light truck all year round in snottsdale, AZ

    I am to the east of you over the mountains...I wish my commute was only 7.3 miles.

    80 miles round trip

    From the Central Arizona desert to the Northen Arizona pine trees 5 or 6 days a week on my GSA.

    If I ain't slidin', I'm a ridin'! With about 330 days of sunshine a year, the only time I don't ride to the fire station is when there's ice on the roads. Damn I love commuting weather in good old sunny Arizona!
