How many miles until the next Big Mac?

We are a fast food nation. Everyone knows that. But did you know that there are over 13,000 MacDonald’s in the lower 48 states? Damn, that’s a lot of calories being consumed.

Stephen Von Worley, who writes the Weather Sealed blog, came up with an idea while driving through California. As he was bombarded with chain store and chain restaurant, one after another, he asked himself “just how far away can you get from our world of generic convenience? And how would you figure that out?”

Using McDonald’s as his test he created a map showing each McDonald’s. Most people don’t have to go too far for McNuggets. The furthest distance between golden arches: “Between the tiny Dakotan hamlets of Meadow and Glad Valley lies the McFarthest Spot: 107 miles distant from the nearest McDonald’s, as the crow flies, and 145 miles by car!” For a bigger map click here.
