I'd quite like to pop to Tristan Da Cunha one day...see this bullshit http://www.folkplay.info/Gallery/Tristan2006.htm
Tristan Da Cunha's cool http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tristan_da_Cunha
the tiny villages further west of the flats were even more so
I love that.
I'd never heard of them before that, amazing looking place
i.e. the one for the then-defunct-and-not-yet-the-O2 Millennium Dome.
That felt pretty remote.
...on The Nullarbor Plain:
Either that or husking sledding up in the artic circle in Finland. Need to be sure which way you're heading otherwise you can stray into Russia, which is frowned upon apparently.
read a book on it years ago about someone who was trained by the CIA to remote view buildings in Baghdad while lay on a bed somewhere in America.
touches on some of the psi training and development stuff the US military were involved with in the 60's, not in an entirely serious way.
But they and the USSR have fairly well documented programs of research into the paranormal and supernormal during the 50's and 60's.
Seriously though, your mum.
no cuddles or nuthing after ploughing the field
Home: Rannoch Moor - the largest uninhabited wilderness, apparently.
The village of Gandoca in Costa Rica, population 75. A tiny hamlet in the middle of a banana plantation. 8 miles from the nearest road.
Serious answer: Clapham.
there's 5 of the bastards, and they're constantly slipping down the gap between the cushion and the arm.
Geographically, not *that* remote, but in reality, remoter than the moon.
or maybe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:D%C3%A9sert-du-Thar.jpg.....a couple of days camel ride away from nearest road......so lovely......walked out from camp early morning to do a dump.....took off all my clothes one at a time, till i was nakid....its ace to be that alone :D.....still its probably nowhere near as remote as tristan de cuhna
or maybe on cornish cliffs or moors at night,
Or other Australian outback towns 8 hours from the next town.
wasn't that far from Ulan Bator, but then UB is a pretty long way from anywhere else.
Subthread: what's the Raoulmoatest place you've ever been? I've been to Rothbury where he got shot and visited by Paul Gascoigne (not in that order) so I win.
Some hairy bits of Scotland too
went to a couple of villages that had never seen white people before.....a place called Kalianahala in Karnataka, but that wasn't as remote as annaikaty in Tamil Nadu which was on the sigur plateau and was seriously remote........loved.it.
i read in national geographic from the 80s that they had to leave cause of the volcano
it also says that no outsiders are permitted to settle there :'(
you have to email some guy to ask if you can come to their island. do you think it would be like the wickerman? probably the most wickermany place you could go tbh.
there are only eight surnames. there were seven, but someone married an OFF ISLANDER!!!!
you can pretty much only get there via fishing boats from South Africa.
