The United States is a very developed place. Sometimes this can prove to be challenging when trying to find a place to get away from everything, especially east of the Mississippi where I reside. I am pretty sure the answer is likely somewhere western (Montana maybe), but what is the most remote place in the contiguous US?
So let's define remote:
Furthest distance from civilization or any signs of it including anything man-made like roads, forest service facilities, huts/shelters...
Furthest distance from medical care or rescue if something goes wrong; difficult terrain could trump the distance.
Number of visitors recorded? Or other USFS data...
Essentially, no visible traces of humans, or "untouched" if that's even possible these days.
Now, I know this could seem like an opinionated question to some folks, but I'm really looking for places that can be backed up and grounded with as much factual data as possible.
Edit: I previously said "continental" US, when the correct term is "contiguous." Oops. Please bear that in mind regarding my comments below.
