When we lived in Texas a hour drive seemed like a lot, but living out here driving for 3 hours or more isn't that big of a deal. One town we visit at least once a month during the winter and a couple times a week is Dufer, the home of Azure Standard. About a 4 hour drive from us...if dad drives. Today there was a equipment auction going on, and when running any farm operation, an auction is a wonderful thing to go to. It went well, and we ended up with a nice box blade that we really needed.
