If you really want the more rural setting in Sykesville, I think the commute is do-able. Google maps shows 27 minutes now (Sunday evening), but you ought to check it during morning rush hour.

Once you go south of Sykesville, the route is I-70 and I-695, and they get congested with construction project and accidents. He would not really be beating the rush hours at 6:30 AM, but it would probably be easier than his commute in Boston. The worst of the rush hour is probably 8-8:30.

Unhappy Thanks but not moving!

Thanks for all the information. Turns out my husband did not get the job so we won't be moving after all.
