Depends. I have a field less than 5 miles away from my house, but I've been known travel to OKC and surrounding areas just to play for a few hours...

I travel about 10 Min.. Maybe not even that.. I work there also (REF) So it makes it really easy..

I have one place 30 mins away and another few ~ an hour away. The 30 min away place is indoor and pretty small, so I drive the hour to get to a good field. However I get to go a few times a year because I can't drive yet, and my parents don't enjoy driving an hour up to NH, and then driving back again.

So, most people have paintball very close to where they live- cool. I bet it wasn't like that 10 years ago.

That brings up a good point, when did the first fields spring up? I thought it was in the late '80s.

Probably around that time, but I'm sure it wasn't very profitable until the last 5-6 years, and it most areas it probably will never be very profitable. When paintball was something done almost entirely in the woods, would you rather play free or play at a field and pay? With speedball being really popular its a different story. Woodsball = free, speedball = expensive.

probly about 30 minutes to my normal field. theres like 5 or 6 places around here though and i havent tried em all yet.

back home though i live in the middle of nowhere and the only field anywhere around is really small. i dont even know if the things open, ive never seen anyone there when i drive by. it looks to have lots of cover though. mainly concrete culverts and junked cars. make a bunker out of anything i guess.

I mostly play at a field called fortpaintball it is about 10 minuts from my house, but I like to play at Xdrenalin Zone 35 minuts from home. Im not shure which one has better field but you get to players are better at Xdrenalin Zone .
