Are You An Extreme Commuter?

There was an interesting article in USA Today recently about the rise of “extreme commuters” – employees who fly (instead of drive) to their jobs, who call a hotel room or part-time apartment home, who spend as much time getting to and from the office as they spend behind their desks, and who see their families only on weekends. Experts blame the rising trend of “super commuting” on the recession, which pummeled employment and the housing sector.

What do you think? Is it worth being an “extreme commuter” just to have a job? Would you consider a long-distance commute if it was merely a short-term solution? Or is there a limit to how far you would commute for a paycheck, even if it means turning down a lucrative position?
