Man Finds the Farthest Spot from a McDonald’s in the Lower 48 States


Do you ever look up into the celestial dome at night and in a state of profound poetry think: I wonder how far you can travel from a McDonald’s? No? Ok, we weren’t meant to be friends anyway. Yes? Lucky you, Stephen Von Worley has figured out how far you can get to a McDonald’s in the lower 48 states.

Traveling to Northwest Nevada and 115 miles away from the closest McDonald’s, Worley trekked to “N 41.94389 W 119.54010” and enjoyed a nice picnic consisting of a McDonald’s hamburger and fries. Because what else would you do in the middle of nowhere? Enjoy nature’s sprawling beauty? Ha!

Check out the mini documentary capturing the moment:

You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a McDonald’s. In my town I have a McDonald’s just two parking lots away from the Walmart which has a McDonald’s INSIDE the Walmart. You can buy crappy fries at the one, walk inside Walmart and buy a crappy burger before anything gets cold. And people wonder why our kids are so fat.
