How far away are you from the nearest Big Mac?

Apparently there's a spot in South Dakota where you'd have to drive 145 miles to get to a McDonald's (or the McFarthest Spot). I'm out in the western half of the US, and in my sparsely populated region it's not uncommon to have to drive at least ten or twenty miles to get that Big Mac. Personally, I'd just as soon go to one of the mom & pop joints - many look like real dives, but I'll tell you what: as fast food goes, the quality is usually better and the prices sufficiently comparable. Crazy as it may seem to many of my fellow Americans, generic convenience ain't all it's cracked up to be.
