Hi everybody!

I was just wondering what is the farthest place away you have been from home? Mine is Rome, Italy. It is 9085km from my home here in Victoria. Hope this isn't a repeat topic, but I did a search. Please post in Kilometres if you can, because most people here use km.

P.S. You can use the great circle mapper for distances. http://gc.kls2.com/

Currently I'm 13770km away from my home (Christchurch, NZ) in Cincinnati, OH. That's what great circle mapper tells me, anyway. Would be more impressive next week, as I'm off to the UK, so would be up around 20,000kms. But oh well, 13770 is impressive enough, I suppose.

19000km is the furthest for me, that was in New York and i live in the most isolated capital city on earth.

next is Toronto which is 18000ks from home.

14065 km, STL-BKK. Assuming of course, that I call STL home, but it has just been a temporary schooling situation (thank God). So, in all actuality, it would be 13323 km, LAS-BKK lol. Like there is a big difference!  Silly

HKG was the farthest I've been away from home (OKC). 7960mi.

Now, if you factor in that I was living in Boston at the time, then it's only 10 miles more at 7970mi.

The farthest for me is 14,919km, or 9,270mi, with that being from my home at MSP to when I was on vacation in DUR.

The farthest I could possibly go, according to the Great Circle Mapper, is 17,313km/10,758mi to MGV (Margaret River, Australia)

It would be fun to go there just to say I've been as far away as MSP as possible...

South -- BOS-CUN = 2792 km

East -- DCA-TLV = 9479 km

West (well, NW) -- BOS-FBK = 5234 km *** in case it doesn't come up, FBK is Ft. Wainwright, Alaska
