Hmmm.

Wasn't there a story a few years ago of some farmer out in literally the middle of nowhere who suddenly got lots of police reports, death threats, angry visitors etc because the IP mapping service settled on a latitude and longitude smack bang in the middle of the country if it didn't know where the IP actually was? And this poor sods house was right at the location?

Found it.

Some Yahoo or other.
From Oregon Geographic Names, it was so named by pioneers for its location which was well removed from other settlements.  A later highway relocation left it several hundred yards from even that.

There's a village in the UK called Lunt.

They're so fed up with people altering their sign they have decided to change the name of the town. From now it will be called Locksucker.

I wonder how good their high speed Internet is?  I could see using it as a hub for remote work just for the pun - especially if costs were low.

They should have changed their name to Remoter.

It's near the town of Bridge. You take that road to get to the Wildlife Safari in Winston (or to just get to I-5)

Had a friend from glide who was down here in socal doing fuels reduction work. His favorite joke was "whaddya get when you put all the women of christmas valley in one building?" "A full set of teeth"...never made it to remote back In my payphone service days, but theres plenty of remote to go around. Back then if i wanted to find a sack it involved shady dealings and very long roadtrips if you didnt know anyone local. These days gold beach has a dispensary, you can get gas, grass,  groceries, liquor, and all the necessities. Back then my house rent was 325 bucks a month, riverfront on the rogue well out of flood range. I sorta miss it, but with just over 2000 people in town and rain that wouldn't stop and a gf that left, i made it six months before heading back south...
