How Far Can You Get From McDonald's?

From Data Pointed:

"Just how far away can you get from our world of generic convenience? And how would you figure that out?

"As I hurtled down the highway, a pair of golden arches crept over the horizon, and the proverbial lightbulb smacked me in the forehead. To gauge the creep of cookie-cutter commercialism, there’s no better barometer than McDonald’s – ubiquitous fast food chain and inaugural megacorporate colonizer of small towns nationwide.

"So, I set out to determine the farthest point from a Micky Dee’s – in the lower 48 states, at least."
