Default How far would you/do you drive for league?

With gas prices on the rise, I thought this would be an interesting question. My farthest trip for league ball is to the Pawling league...according to Mapquest:

Total Est. Time: 48 minutes
Total Est. Distance: 38.43 miles

Used to play in Oxford, MA league. That was 1 hr 10 min away from home in Agawam. Good competition but not worth the ride. Now Agawam league is 5 mins.

I drive from Ellenville to Poughkeepsie which is about an hour, depending on traffic. New Paltz is a bitch to drive through.

I drive an hour to RI for Sunday morning league. It's about 35 miles but all back country roads. Weeknights in Norwich which is about 15 minutes away. I stopped playing in RI weeknights this season because it was just too much travel.
