Do you’ve been across the country. Did you fly or take another mode?

I flew to those three destinations, Z. My favorite mode of transportation has always been the train, but my train trips have been shorter.

I have traveled far less than anyone here. 🤔

I believe it is just a little over 1,000 miles (the very tip of South Dakota and Montana. )

I’ve known folks (lots of midwesterners) who’ve never seen an ocean. Any ocean. It is something I think everyone should experience in their lives.

I lived for a few years in Norfolk, England. The biggest town nearby was Norwich, about 20 miles from where I lived. There were some people in the village who had only ever been there two or three times in their life. London, about 95 miles away, was a whole different world. I asked one chap (I suspect he earned his living as a poacher) how he bought clothes and things if he never went into a town. "I order 'em from a catalogue at the village shop" was his reply. This was all about 40 years ago, I guess there are none left like him now.

I had to look this up and it is close.  Frankfurt, Germany (4,713 miles) came in second to Anchorage, Alaska (4,719 miles).

(Maui came in third with 4,658.)
