My hubbie will be working in Bethesda. Could we commute from Charles County or Frederick to Bethesda? Any idea how long it would take/ bus/train/metro/car? What's the best transport?? Are we crazy?

DON'T DO IT! I know real estate is prohibitively expensive close to D.C., but the long commute will destroy your quality of life, and maybe more. We moved to Frederick - Urbana - 3 years ago and my husband commutes to NW D.C. It takes him at least 1 and 1/2 hours each way - more with traffic or weather problems! The congestion is only getting worse each year.

If I had it all to do over again, I would have bought a small place in Bethesda or Rockville!

Good Luck

DON'T DO IT! You will be driving FOREVER!!! NOT WORTH IT!!! It will take over 2 hours! Just getting from Branch Ave to a Metro is about 45 mins. and Red line delays, forget about it!
