Zero out of 100. The closest was a bar at 2.61 miles, so it isn't all bad news...


<edit> interesting post script:
I entered my current (past 18 months) work place, 86/100.
I then entered my prior (15 years ago) home, less than a mile from where I now work and the score dropped to 43.
What? I used to walk the 3/4 mile to these same establishments regularly when I lived in town and yet that's all the distance needed to drop the relative score that much?<end edit>

JanGeo,

88 out of 100...that's because your STATE is smaller than my COUNTY!

Plus a grocery store is far more important than a shoe store... Despite my low score, I don't need to drive for any necessities.

I like the whole concept though

My house in Regina got a score of 40 (mostly because of all the 'Big Box' development nearby). My dormroom at the University of Manitoba only got 23 .

The 1970s suburban house I lived in during my first 7 years of existence only had a score of 12!

Where on earth are you people living where you score ZERO??

OMG, I almost fell out of my chair laughing when I read that! ROFL

Anyways, I got a 57 though one place burned down last week and the pizza shop they listed (twice) doesn't exist anymore, it closed a month ago.

And I thought I lived in a boring little town...

Obviously very little is close enough to walk

My home scored a 3. The only really nearby businesses are the Circle-K convenience store, a veterinarian's office, one gas station, and some antique shops. On the plus side, I could walk to the fire station, post office, and police station.
