What's the farthest you've been from home in the past month? the past year?

Asked by Jeruba (51915points) October 15th, 2018

This is a question about distance: how far from home have you been recently?

Some of us get around a lot; for others it’s a really big deal to travel 100 miles, or even 50.

So—not asking where or how long, just how far in a recent interval.

So…that was two questions: distance in the past month, distance in the past year. They’ll be different unless the past month has been your maximum travel month.

A day I’ll always remember, @rebbel. No. Wait. That was the 3rd of September.

Hats off to all of you. Some of you are really champions, as far as I’m concerned. I haven’t been as much as 60 miles from home since April of last year.

I do see a lot of foreign movies, though…

I was in Los Angeles earlier this month, so that’s about 600 miles away. I was also in Wisconsin earlier this year, which is almost 2000 miles away. I haven’t left the country this year.

The first time I left town in the last three or four years was to see a doctor about a hundred miles away, twice. That was August.

I was in Alaska in July. That’s 2300 miles.
Last week I was in Vegas, which is 630 miles away.

I’ve never left Red Deer in 5 years.

Past month: I was at Disney this past Saturday. My GPS says it’s 59 miles away.

Past year: I think Boca Raton, FL. 240 miles. 13 months ago I was in NYC, my aunt had been placed into hospice and I flew up for a couple of weeks. That’s 940 miles.

The past year, i went to Los, Angeles once, about 400 miles, but I rarely travel more than 20 miles in any month. I am going on school field trip next week, driving 30 miles, which I consider a long way.

Not a joke
