How far do you drive to your field/s?

I see the other thread asking how often people play. seems a lot of you guys play very often. just getting an idea of how far your fields are. For me the closest one is an hour away. there's 4 fields i would play at and all are 1 - 1.5 hours away. Really wish there were closer options.

I'm very lucky. I'm located in the SF Bay Area. I have 1 field within 10 mins of me, and several within 1- 1 1/2 hours from me.

30 min or so to my home field.

Six or so fields in my area less than an hours drive.

I try to take a road trip every couple of months as well.

Closest field to me worth playing is about 45 minutes away.

I consider anything up to about 1 hr to 1 1/2 hr away as being "close-by".

I love how my field gets its logo printed on Draxxus silver and we are just paying $10 extra than I would back home (Florida) for just normal Draxxus silver.. Oh well Better than $160 any day.. You seriously are getting gypped unless you're shooting like 2-3 cases for that price..
