Just wondering if there is anyone else out there who does this commute every day?

My husband drives from Cumberland to Hagerstown (60+ miles, 1 hour) and then takes a vanpool from Hagerstown to Ft Meade (a little over an hour).

He'd love to find a commuting buddy! I believe he's trying to start a vanpool from Cumberland.

As more people price out of Frederick and Hagerstown, I think Cumberland is going to start seeing an increase in crazy commuters like my husband.

I am trying to convince myself that a Walkersville to Rockville commute wouldn't be bad, I can not even imagine a commute from Cumberland to the DC/Bmore area.

Default That's practically around the corner ;)

My inlaws do the whole Walkersville to the DC area commute. My mother in law does it to Anacostia (I am sure I'm spelling that wrong) and my father in law does it to some place just off of 95.

Although, 270 is not fun. And neither is 194. They really need to do something about that road. It was not built to handle the kind of traffic it gets every day! My inlaws say that the only way to make the commute doable is to do the 6-2 hours.

Thats some commuting family you married into Rockville is absolutely as far as I am willing to go down 270 I cant even imagine driving to Anacostia every day.

I think I must have married into a commuting family I seem to recall my dad saying that commuting to Rockville from Frederick was a HORRIBLE commute and WAY too far.

My husband did a check at his work to find people in the Cumberland zipcode that work at his agency. (well the "commuting" department or whatever it is did that) There were TWELVE people who live here that work there! That's about four times more than I'd expect!

Now we're looking into getting a condo or something down there, just in case there's snow. Plus it'd be nice to have a place to stay if we want to be near civilization for a weekend

I live in Cumberland/Frostburg area and work in DC. I normally drive to/from; but my car recently died after 5 years and almost 400 thousand miles. Are you still looking for other crazy commuters? I'd love to join a vanpool or ride-share that'll get me anywhere near Montgomery county or a Marc train station.
