    According to Mapquest it's about 35 miles form me about an hour away.The thing is on Long Island everything is about 20 minutes away so you kind of get used to that. The fact that I drive 45 minutes to get to the only Full Contact Karate Dojo on Long Island, is weird to most people.

    Now that you mention it, I seem to recall from my time in New Jersey that most people didn't like driving for more than about 15 mins whether they were going 5 miles or 25 miles. An hour in the car for me will get me 70 miles down the road. I'll probably attend the other school as often as I can without going broke.

    Rocky point's a solid hour drive assuming no traffic and speeding. Considering I have to borrow a car when I'm up here, I'd say that makes the trip pretty much impossible.

    Also, far is something meassured by time in this day and age. 20 miles one place is as much time in the car as 60 in another. Having never been to Texas, I'm forced to assume it's exactly like movies that are set in the post-civil war era, so naturally the definition of far would change.

    that was really good. I wish more of my ex-students did that.
    They just vanish off the face of the Earth and are never heard from again.
    You should tell him in person. Especially if he was a good coach.

    in L.A. an hour in the car won't get you more than 20 miles.

    Texas tends to be a bit spread out. San Antonio is less a city and more of a small town with a lot of real estate.
