Default Anyone commute from Temecula to Pasadena?

Looking to see what would be the best time in the morning and what freeways would be best to use to commute to Temecula to Pasadena. Thank you

Coming from someone who commuted from Temecula to Irvine for a year, and who has driven Temecula --> Pasadena with no traffic, that is going to be one hell of a long commute. Getting to the 60 or 10 alone will take you ~1 hour.

Drive till you qualify, I guess. Seriously, its funny the pain people consider subjecting themselves to. Heck, I remember one poster that thought commuting daily from Burbank to San Jose by air was a good idea.

Oh my god!

When I lived in Riverside, my commute was 2 miles. Maybe 10 minutes if you count getting in and out of the car and walking from my door to work's door. Granted, I was younger then and still lived with mommy.

Then, I moved to Rancho Cucamonga, I think for the mountain view out my window and the status. Big mistake. I found myself driving 35 minutes each way to Corona, then I picked up a second job in Chino Hills and that drive was about 40 minutes. My life turned to hell fast! 4 months of that was enough, I decided I'd never subject myself to that again. Even commuting to just one of those jobs was enough!

Then, I moved to the Mojave Desert. My commute was 5 minutes, but my job was to drive. Go figure.

Now, in Denver, I'm a self-employed driver. Go figure again.

At least I get paid (quite well) for being in my car, and it's no longer a means to an end. And, I don't have to put up with traffic, because I drive on off-peak hours.

If I ever work in a brick-and-mortar place again, I will live as close to work as reasonably possible.

People: A house or a bigger house isn't worth the drive. Live across the street or next door to work, or at least keep it to 20 minutes, or move somewhere else.....it isn't worth it (unless you are getting paid for the time in your car), believe me!

Just the very notion of commuting everyday from Temecula to Pasadena makes me want to shoot myself.

I commuted from Hemet to Altadena for a year - it was the worst year ever. Traveling from Temecula I'm thinking you could take the 15 all the way up to the 210. It might not be that horrible.

I live in San Jacinto and work in Pasadena. However, I do not commute every day. I only work 4 days a week and stay with my sister who lives closer to Pasadena during the days I do work. I only get to go home during the weekend. The miles I put on my truck is unbelievable. I am constantly changing the oil every month instead of the 3 months. It is killing me but I can't sell my house because of the housing market yet. I have to wait until things get better and I can sell my house and move closer to work.

I usually take the 215 North to the 60 West to the 605 North and then finally the 210 West. Hope that helps. Hey, maybe we could carpool and save on gas and miles.

My husband drives to downtown LA from La Quinta twice a week. If he's in trial he just stays in LA. It's more than worth it to us to be able to live in paradise.

I could see twice a week maybe, but to commute from Temecula to Pasadena someone would have to have a screw loose. Or maybe it is just me, I think any commute over 45 minutes is crazy!!!!
