    Default Furthest from London The Capital City of England

    Ok we all know that London England is the Captial of the world or it thinks it is, but then again some still think there is still a British Empire. I live approximately 281 miles from London and I being nosey thought to myself who lives the furthest away in miles (please don't confuse me with metric I'm too old to understand that) What will be interesting is this will tell us all the geographical spread of the forum.

    Kansas beats me. I am only a mere 4000 miles away near Tampa Florida.

    I am 3884 miles away but that did not stop our daughter who was going to university in Michigan from calling us in the middle of the night when we lived in England to tell us her car would not start.

    This was our house in Princethorpe Warwickshire England. It looked different when we lived there. The 4 foot wide 8 foot tall hedge went all the way around the property?

    It was in the Midlands (country to Americans) It was literally in the middle of a cow pasture. We could throw food to the cows over the hedge out our kitchenette window.

    Guy from London owned it and rented it to my company for three years while I worked with Jaguar.
