Default What do you consider "the middle of no where"?

Hello People,
So I was wondering what you guys think is rual? I consider rual being on the sideway of the highway and the nearest town is 60 miles away with a gas station being the only place within miles. Some people might consider a town with less than 50,000, complete isolation. Do you live in rual areas? If so, and you have kids, how do they respond when going to larger cities? 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

LOL!

I'll give you the Washington Monument. I like visiting D.C. but I'm not sure I could live there.

L.A. isn't all Rodeo Drive, though. The Santa Clarita Valley, Riverside, and Orange County are all very different from the westside of L.A. The westside is pretty well depicted in this video:

West texas or eastern nevada are about as close to the middle of nowhere as you can get.

Once, when driving to Arizona, we went through Kansas. I remember seeing vast, flat land, as far as the eye could see. Way in the distance there was a white farm house- the only sign of humans. That is what I consider the middle of nowhere.
