Hmm... I live closer to another country than I do another state.

I live about 90 miles from Ohio, work about 50 miles from Ohio. I live about 45 miles from Canada, and I work less than a mile from Canada.

-About 150 miles to the (dreaded) WI-IL border. I only say dreaded because that's when I have to step up my driving game just to pretend to match those Illinois drivers who are significantly faster than NE WI drivers.

-About 280 miles to the WI-MN border.

-About 210 miles to the WI-IA border.

-About 76 miles to the WI-MI) border (the UP, not LP).
