How many posts is it now that I keep seeing asking about how far something is from Dallas, its an easy thing to answer for yourself.

Personally I also have an atlas I keep close at hand, DUH.
People are basically just too lazy to go do minor searches for themselves, and would rather just be told. I guess looking at an atlas is just too much work.....

And if anyone has any good ideas from moving from Maryland to Dallas, I would love to hear from you! I'm trying to do a 12 month countdown
Obviously, you've never looked at a map of Texas (with a scale)
You might as well go ahead and commute from Monterrey, Mexico.

My personal opinion is that they are very close, regardless of the facts of geography. I would not hesitate in the least to commit to a commuting arrangement between Dallas and Corpus Christi.

It took me 4 seconds on Google Maps to ask for directions from Corpus to Dallas and along with the directions it tells you the distance and estimated driving time, 412 miles, 6 hours and 14 minutes.

Great idea, if you leave Dallas at 1:45 AM you could get to Corpus in time for work at 8 AM. Leaving work at 5 PM you would get back to Dallas at 11:15 PM, so you could sleep for maybe 1 hour before you had to get up and start getting ready for work the next morning.

Exactly! Completely doable, given enough coffee and truck-stop stimulants.

Wow that would be a crazy commute. The man with the longest commute on record, at least by car, is Dave Givens.
