Farthest Away You Have Been From Home?

Tue May 09, 2006 9:09 am

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.

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...

North -- not worth measuring, I grew up near Boston and can only think of a trip to Montreal

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

From current home, 14733 km BHM-SYD.

If you go from place of birth then 15980 km EWR-SYD

Edit: Actually, Picton, NSW probably adds 60-70 km to this as I've flown from this airport as well but was unable to find its code for GCM. Anybody have it handy?

Of course it depends on how the distance is measured but using the Great Circle mapper, the furthest I am from home is home. Yeah - my sister and her family live in Western Australia and it's like home to me as well as here in Canada.

According to the great circle mapper, direct from my home to hers is 9716 miles or 15636 km's. But if I map it by how I actually fly there it is 11481 flying miles or 18477 flying km's.

That's going west. Going east the furthest I've been is to South Africa with a flying distance of 10766 miles or 17327 km's.

Well, home for me hardly exists, but if we take it to be Los Angeles, the farthest away I have been from home is SYD.

LAX-SYD: 7488 mi according to GCM.

However tonight I'm leaving for Dubai (albeit from London) so if you count distance from there to Los Angeles:

LAX-DXB: 8339 mi accrording to GCM.

And that will be the farthest I have ever been. EK will be taking me there.

Although technically our local international airport is BLK so that would make it:
