Heh heh...I live 30 miles out of town on 14 beautiful wooded acres with 400 ft. of river frontage.  Takes me 25 min. to get to work....

Anyone that commutes 3 hours is a friggin moron

Or lives in Los Angeles. :)

I drive 36 miles round trip to work every day (except Thursday when I get to code in the peace and quiet of home). If there weren't any traffic it would take me 20 minutes each way. But oy, the time it takes some days.

Oh no doubt there are days.
I worked in Boston for a time.....................................

Commutes from hell, we've all seen them but I'll stand by what I said.

FWIW I consider a 3 hour commute to be BOTH WAYS, not just the occasional bad afternoon ride home

I'm only on 6 acres Denny. 30 mile commute, 35 minutes or so.
You have river frontage............... you have a submersible to cool the wort with during Spring run-off :D

New Englanders...  ::)

Three hours isn't a road trip. Hell, in a lot of places it's barely a commute.

Yeah but you flatlanders have nice straight parallel and perpendicular flat roads without giant frost heaves!

Ya can't get tha from hea'

I never understood why anyone living outside of the city would do anything other than heigh your butt to the nearest commuter. I really do miss the T out here, but given the relative sizes of the cities.

And I have co-workers who do that 3 hours... One lives down in Manhattan Beach and it's pure traffic - about the same distance as my commute, much much longer times in. Another at least lives all the way out in Lancaster. By the time he realised he wasn't just working the job "temporarily" his son was well established in the community and he didn't want ot rip him out of there. Egads.

You give up a lot on conveniences living in the country, but what you gain, far outweighs the losses.

Man, I do not miss LA. Actually, I miss some things, but I don't miss working there.

There's a brewer I know in Eugene who is pushing "Cascadian Dark Ale" instead of Black IPA. I don't think that will stick.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

I walk 800 yards to work from home and walk home at lunch to let the dog out.  Except when its my turn to drive the kids to daycare & school, but that's maybe a 3 mile cicuit - small town livin' is grand  ;D
We hope to someday be outside of town on an acreage, but we're content where we are while the kids are young.

That's a very different beer than a black IPA, though.....

Talk to Matt at Oakshire. You should anyway, he's a hell of  a nice guy and brews some good beers.

I know Matt well.  He not only judged the Sasquatch Homebrew contest for me last year, he brought a keg of their special Sassie beer for the judge's lunch!  I got a keg filled with theoir excellent IPA from him recently.  IIRC, the Cascadian uses a Belgian yeast and rye, besides being as hoppy as an AIPA.

Tell him Greg from Flossmoor says hello when you get a chance. We were sad to see him go but it sounds like he's making the most of his new opportunities.
