On his blog, Weather Sealed, Stephen von Worley asked the question, "just how far away can you get from our world of generic convenience?" More specifically, he sought to answer the question - How far could one possibly get from a McDonald's...

What you see below is a speck of light emanating from each: the grid forming tight clusters around metropolitian areas and outlines pf the major freeways like a geographically correct Lite-Brite.

Stephen then proceeded to work out the math to determine where in the United States is the farthest place from any McDonald's
