Can anybody give me any idea how the commute would be living in Silver Spring and working at Ft. Meade? I imagine the hours will be something like 8-5, but I don't know for sure yet. I know it is approximately 30 miles, but what is the traffic like in that direction?

From N. Silver Spring I can make it in 35 minutes non-rush hours. New Hampshire to 198 to 29 to 175. If you're 30 miles away you must be in the heart of SS. Fortunately you'll be going against traffic most of the way. I'd allow an hour - probably more the first day or two.

If you're in Silver Spring, then going up is against rush hour traffic for 29N, 95N, or 295N. I take 95N everyday from the beltway up to near Baltimore, and it's usually a breeze. You shouldn't have any problems unless you have to drive through the heart of Silver Spring downtown in which case getting to the highway may add quite a lot of time in your commute.

Thanks a bunch! I haven't moved there yet, I just thought that looked like the best place to live near the fort due to restaurants, bars, etc. I got the 30 miles from google maps, just an estimate. If you have other thoughts that are closer please feel free to make suggestions.
