Distance is relative: my daughter travels 100 miles each way on Monday nights to rehearse with our "local" symphony. If they get their noses into a bucket of beer after symphony then she'll stay over and head back to her home at 6 am the next morning to be there in time for her first students. While living in Toronto I had relatives visit from Holland. One day they asked if they could borrow one of the cars because they wanted "to go to New York City" for the day!!!! I sat them down and reviewed the scale on the map they were looking at..... they decided against it.
