I vote for Nebraska as well, people I met at at a meeting in Omaha, had to drive 2 hrs one way for basic grocery items. Nineteen miles to reach a road, to be able to drive to work an hour away. I said I appreciated their effort. Many people in my part of the country won't walk across the road for a job, or food, they expect it to come to them. SC Granny were you in Omaha in February? Your tone sounds familiar. If you are the one I am thinking of you frequently say oh dear, is that right.

LOL Hi, oldraider!
No, that wasn't me. I don't 'do' Omaha; it's almost 6 hours away! And I don't say, "Oh, dear" at all - unless one is leaping across the fence toward the car... I'm more of a "WTH??" kind of person...

Your description of things sounds like her, but she was a little more like Santa's wife on Rudolph, than your WTH type. Either way the women of Nebraska are made of tougher material than most in this country, I think everyone could use more Nebraska attitude.

My state (Idaho) is #44 on the list referenced above. I love that it's not crawling with people here.

I would have to say Alaska is one of the most isolated places to live.

When it comes to isolated you can not beat the Canadian territory of Nunavut.
It has an area seven and a half times that of Texas with a population of around 33,000. There are no roads at all outside of the towns. Eerything has to be flown in.

My son was a DR. there for a year and in Nunavut the Dr makes house calls. When something bad happens to you the Dr. flies out to see you. If it's something he can deal with he does, if not he flies you back to the hospital at the capital. If they can't fix you there they fly you thousands of miles to the Hospital in Ottawa. All for free of course. LOL

LOL, that's one funny little piece of the USA. Did you know it happened because of a survey mistake? I've been by there and seen the road signs to it but that was in Canada not the USA.
