eek Travelling Distance to Uni

Ok Guys and Gals,
Since this week is the first week for tutorials i thought i'd ask the question on how far does everyone travel to University. This semester i have been unlucky in that all my subjects are in UWS McArthur in Cambeltown. Thats all nice and fine of one lives in Sydney but when one lives in the Blue mountains it's quite a hike. It's about 75km from home.

Oh yeah another rant is that today i have a 1 hour lecture after work. Drive all the way from near the airport to Cambeltown

My course is at UNSW so for me that'd be 50k each way. But mine's a correspondence Master's Program and work's in town, so half hour bus ride before/after work if I need to chase something down or do exams.

UWS Macarthur is actually the closest uni to me Strider.

Well here i am at UWS Macarthur. Just measured it from my work and it's 50km. The roads are excellent at least the new M5 from Rockdale saves quite abit of time only about 45mins drive.

I used to travel 2 hours each way to get to UWS Nepean with public transport!!!!.
After a few 46º days on non airconditioned trains, I bought a xw.. 40 minutes each way of sweet sounding windsor fury down the M4 Travel doesn't bother me these days.... It takes me approximately 5 seconds to get to work
