Default Greenville-Anderson commute?

Hiya,
I'm moving from Nebraska to work in Anderson, SC, but think I'd rather live in Greenville. I'm single, 30, very much into the live music, arts, social scene and I think it would be smarter to live where I'll be playing over where I'll be working. Is the traffic bad along 123 between Anderson and Greenville during rush hours or is that distance easily doable? Am I correct in assuming that I'd rather be in Greenville than Anderson for those social reasons? It seems that there's a lot more going on in Greenville over Anderson.
Thanks a bunch for any help!!!
D

Well, seeing how you'll be going the opposite direction of most people those times of the day then you shouldn't have a problem at all with traffic unless there's a car wreck or something.

I live in Anderson and I go down I-85 almost every day the traffic really isn't that bad. 385 is much worse and it's nothing like a road like 40. There is a wreck on 85 almost every day i have been told but I have never seen one. I know they happen there all the time but overall there really isn't anything to worry about as far as traffic jams.

Default Easley/Powdersville

You could go half-way and live in the Easley/Powdersville area. Your commute would not be as bad and you are easily accessible to both areas.

Shouldn't be too bad if you are out before the main rush around 8:00am (give or take a few minutes). I know it really depends upon how close you will be to I-385, since it can take awhile to drive longer stretches of Woodruff Road during both rush times of weekdays. There are also a few ways to avoid portions of Woodruff Road if you are traveling south on I-385.

Depends on what end of Woodruff. The 385/85 end can be rough at times relatively speaking but the other end (Candleton Village Apartments area) wouldn't be bad as there are several ways around including picking up 85 at Laurens instead of traveling down Woodruff to 85. This probably would be more advantageous traffic wise on the return rather than in the morning. The exit (Woodruff) coming back can be backed up so taking the exit at Laurens and going backroads over (Laurens to Woodruff) would be less traffic. Laurens is a large 6 lane road.

The commute is doable. Since you'll be renting then you can always change your mind after the lease is up if it becomes too much.
