That's about right when said by a Texan. Similar to saying "it's down the road a piece."

Anywhere from 1 to 200 miles.


Visit my fictional blog "The dr Chronicles" about a laid-back Texan named dr - Enjoy!

I hate it when someone measures distance in time. Is that 1/2 hour at 30 m.p.h. on back roads or is it 1/2 hour on the Interstate? I want to know how many miles it is between 2 points. JMO


In the end, it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.

Using 'time' to reference distance 'assumes' using the most common (direct) route between the two points and normal traffic/weather conditions. It's use seeks to place more importance on travel time than the less meaningful 'distance'. It appeals more to the casual traveler.

True distance primarily being useful to calculate fuel consumption or fees charged per mile. Commercial/Fleet interests apply more here.
