it depends on the traffic, but its usually around 10 min.
But if I have to take the bus (when my dadīs at sea) it takes my 30 mins-1 hour :roll:

I only live like 2 miles away, I could even walk there.... but when you live in the middle of nowhere that's close... I have to drive 15 miles if I want to buy anything...... but technically I don't own or board, but someone abandoned a horse at the trainers, so I just kinda claim him.... does that count?

ugh... :roll: some people..... well a long story short, they got 4 unbroke horses from a modern horse trader..... they kept them in a tiny pen and with no shelter.... one starved to death, and this one was close, so the trainer I help rescued him and then they never took him back and told them to sell him to cover their debts...... they can't take care of their horse but they can afford new cars, xboxes, a Wii, a PS3..... they anger me!!
