Just what is a commute?

Denver raises and interesting point in the thread "Did you commute today" when is asks if he must un-retire to particiapte in the thread. Is a commute only related to rides to and from one's employment?

A commute is any regularly repeated trip. He's good.

EDIT: From Dictionary.com
to travel regularly over some distance, as from a suburb into a city and back: He commutes to work by train.
For most of us, the term commute means commute to work. It's what we mean and the "to work" is implied. But "to work" is not a necessary part of commuting. I like to think of the day when my commute is to the coffee shop.
