When Ted Clark couldn't find work in his hometown of Calgary he had to broaden his search:

"I know it sounds crazy but the closest job I could find was in Vancouver."

Clark landed a job as a barista in Vancouver's fashionable Mount Pleasant area but was unwilling relocate to the city.

"We just love the Calgary lifestyle too much to move away from it, so I drive 13 hours every day to work," says Clark.

According to Clark, he spends roughly $500 a week on gas and traverses 5,832 km every week. But he says it's all worth it to spend 26 hours with his family each weekend in the city that he loves.
