Question How far do you drive to start a routine day of Railfanning?

With the gas prices, just curious as to how far everyone drives to start a routine day of railfanning. Below are my closest.
B&P Butler-42 miles (mult. trains daily...varying times of the day)
WNYP Meadville-45 miles (x3 weekly each direction out of Meadville, plus 4 or 5 NS trains daily)
Oil Creek&Titusville-35 miles (run x2 weekly plus weekend excursions)
Bessemer (CN) Greenville-60 miles (3or4 trains daily systemwide)

Obviously, above are 'chase' days. I have to drive even farther to get to NS or CSX main line action.
