30 min home to client site - local client

6 hours home to client

11.5 hrs now, 11 ✈️ 0.5🚖. I miss my family.

I have 5 clients at 3 distinct geographical locations w/ 2 hours flight, 1 hour flight and 45 mins uber respectively when I travel. Add 45 mins in uber for the first one and 2.5 hours for second one. Add to this arriving airports early, delay etc, it’s a mess.

3 hrs 45 minutes if flight is on time

Door to Door 7.5 Hours

1.5 hour flight and 1. 5 hour drive to the airport. 2.5 hours if I don't feel like dealing with O'Hare and drive to Indianapolis
