    Who's the most remote?

    It's amazing how many foosters live in a small town, but I'm wondering if those little towns are remote. How close do you live to a "big" city? I lived 90 miles from the nearest city.

    Four miles to the capitol of California. However, it's generally an hour's drive or more to get anywhere interesting (for riding a two-wheeled conveyance or otherwise), so it feels pretty remote to me.

    IMO a major city needs to have a professional(major league) sports team. That places me about 6 hours from a major city.

    If it weren't for the Braves I would be states and states away from a major city.

    0km. I'm only 4.5km from the CBD. and about the same distance from the only hills nearby.

    doooooooood, I live in the Hood. Have a skinhead around the corner, buncha bikers down from him. Have pretty much determined there's a bunch of bicycle thieves on both streets by me judging by the pile of parts in the backyard and the fact that they always seem to be riding something different, and I know they did not go out and buy that rack or fenders for that bike.

    However I do like city (not the people) for the stuff going on, the stores-restaurants, etc. I grew up in the sticks, spent much of my youth as a tomboy in swamps and fields catching snakes and turtles, etc.

    I live 2.75 miles from this the center of downtown (where I work).
