I used to live on a reservation and most of the youth would always say "I can't wait to get outta here!"...I'm glad I did
You might like the nonfiction book "Miles from Nowhere: Tales from America's Contemporary Frontier" by Dayton Duncan.

Default Great Basin

Definitely the Great Basin region, especially eastern Oregon and central and eastern Nevada. Try driving on the "Loneliest Road in America", the U.S. 50 through Nevada.

You can see the mountains, rivers and trees. You can hear the wind and birds.
Too peaceful for me I guess.

My God, the Poconos has gotten so built up since I went there for vacations as a kid. It's just like more suburban sprawl now. There are traffic lights everywhere, and a Wal-mart and a ton of chain hotels and stores.

It used to be country. Now people live up there and commute across NJ to Manhattan.

Well if you're going off-world, Atumre, and if you consider the Universe to be nowhere, then I suppose the exact spot that the Big Bang began would be the middle of nowhere!
