My husband currently works in Fairfax, and I have gotten a great job offer just north of Charlottesville (right off rt 29). In zero traffic- it's just under 2 hrs between the two. We will need to move-- and are thinking of Culpeper. Can people provide advice about this commute? Particularly-- the Culpeper to Fairfax grind. Should we expect 1.5 hrs for this? Is it do-able?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Fairfax is rather large, can you be more specific?

That sounds pretty hellish. But given those parameters, I'd probably choose Gainesville or Warrenton.

Yeah-- he works by the Dunn Loring metro stop near Gallows Rd and 495. It's technically fairfax, but probably closer to Falls Church/Merrifield. I've got no doubt that traffic will be a bear coming this direction-- so just wanted to get advice about how to minimize the pain as much as possible!!

I concur with the other poster - better to be in Gainesville since your husband would spend 2-3 times longer in the car getting from Culpeper through Gainesville than you would from Gainesville to Culpeper.

Either way you slice it, this is a long commute
