Default How long will you drive?

How long of a drive would you be willing to make on a regular basis to ride? Say every weekend?

To ride Jessica Alba: 8 hours

To Shred: Probably 4. Wake up at 5 or 6 and get there by 9 or ten sounds reasonable

We do 5 hrs every weekend, wake up at 3:30 leave at 4 boarding by 9. really not that bad been doing it for years. a group of funny MotherF%$kers that talk shit the whole way, good music and few beers & or some budz (for the ride home that is) makes the ride go pretty fast. if its a car full of some quiet boring bastards then 2 hrs can feel like an eternity.

I drive 2.5 - 3 hours each way every tuesday. Totally worth it.

Leave by 6am. On the mountain by 9am.
Leave by 3pm. In my driveway by 6pm.

Of course since we ride midweek we don't have to deal with the crowds

To ride every weekend probably the max I would drive is 2.5 hours. If not I could just ride out behind my house.
I love the setup I have, my local mountain is only an hour away from my house which is an almost perfect distance.

I would probably drive 3 hours if I had a crew to share the ride. At the moment none of my friends would be up for going that often so it isn't really an option to go that far. My close hill is 50 minutes
Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.

3.5 hours each way, every weekend and I log every mile with the passengers usually sleeping. If it wasn't for my iPod and ESPN radio, I'd be lost.

Wake up at 3am, leave by 3:30 am, drive 5 hours, boarding by 9am, get to the hotel 5pm, sleep, wake up 6:30am, start boarding at 8am, leave the mtn at 4 pm, drive home 5 hours, get home about 10:30 pm...EVERY WEEKEND.

Plus we pack ourselves into one car so were all smushed together for the full 5 hours cause its cheaper to take small cars and pack ourselves then take 2 cars or 1 truck. Plus Im the only girl of the group so I always gotta sit in the smallest tightest spot....

Im not complaining though...its always a great time and soooooooooo worth it lol. Plus the people I go with are hilarious so it makes it that much better
