Oy, that is just too far, Fwan!
I'm in Illinois, and my Dad and brother and his family are in Michigan, 6-7 hours away. The in-laws are in Indiana, 5-6 hours away. Sister and family in New York, other sister and family in Colorado, and other brother and family in Oklahoma.
I grew up in Michigan, and the economy tanked, and we scattered looking for jobs. I'm settled here now, with close friends, but my kids don't know all their cousins like I did growing up. I wish we were closer physically, so we could see each other more.
