Realistically, how long would the commute take from N. Scottsdale (McDowell Mountain Ranch area) to Gilbert (Guadelupe Rd. area) in the morning? Is 101 a parking lot at that time or does it move fairly smooth?

You are going opposite the traffic flow after you reach the intersection of the 101 and 202, so the that part should be pretty clear. But the n. Scottsdale to/from that intersection (the stretch of highway that is in Scottsdale) will be ugly.

Unless there is a very good reason for this commute, I'd reconsider and move closer to your job in Gilbert. (unless you are used to commutes similar to what they experience in LA, etc. In that case, you will think this commute is a breeze for the first few years.)

It's all perspective I suppose. I live close to N Scottsdale (56th and 101) and commute to Tempe every morning. I find the entire drive a breeze and I'm used to the commutes in KC, not exactly LA type of traffic.
