Hi,
My boyfriend has just accepted a job in Baltimore and we are relocating. I am considering accepting a job offer in Dover. We found a house we love in Elkton, but I know that is a far drive from Baltimore. Can anyone tell me if they make that commute every day and how long it takes with traffic? We made the drive over the weekend and it took <1hour, but there was really no traffic. I appreciate any information you can give me. Thanks!

Decide who has the best job.
Find a place to live NEAR there.
Make everything else work around that.

i would think about an hour and 15 min not factoring in when it rains or snows because then people really don't know how to drive, especially on 95.
i would also give yourself about the same commute time going from elkton to dover.

Thanks! I appreciate it! Hopefully we will find a way to work everything out. 1 hour 15 min isn't too bad... especially for as much as you can get for your money in Elkton. I appreciate it!

Doing that once a month or so to come into the City for some entertainment? Sure.
Committing to a 1hr 15 minutes commute 2X per day... is insane.
