120 mile round trip for me.

Someone (MJG?) produced a map of supporter locations a few years ago - not sure if this link will work:

https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1euHSxnc8BCZlLsqfnmUYHuoI2T01TaXb&ll=-3.81666561775622e-14%2C0&z=1
Great Map, haven,t seen this for a few years, I am surprised at how few there are in Hammersmith and Fulham. I can certainly add a few more down here in Sussex that aren't on the map and that's just within my village + 2 more families in a neighbouring village.  Many of us grew up within a mile of the ground, others in Putney and Battersea.

Map works well, though I am a tad suspicious of how many hits (5) there are in Indianapolis! I only know of one other FFC supporter in that area, and she lives in the same house as I do! Though two of the Zip Codes do refer to my last two abodes over the past 5 years, as well as the tickets we got (JH stand & Hammy End).

Oh, and round trip is about 8250 for us, if we go via O'Hare.

I used to regularly go from Brighton and back. Once drove from the Scottish Borders where I was on holiday to Brighton to pick up a mate then to Fulham for the game. Those were the days.

Quite a few of us down here in Brighton and Hove who still make the journey when the trains are running and even when they aren't.

JFK to LHR then tube to Earls Court road and transfer to Putney. It's actually usually pretty quick, though I usually go from work which is at Green Park.

I will buck the trend with a 1.6 mile walk each way from Hammersmith

Oh how I wish we still had our family home in Fernhurst Road Fulham where I was born.

if I remember correctly, in compiling the data, MJG (if it was he) asked people to submit their postcodes/zipcodes themselves.  And I'm not sure how many years ago it was so the McBride, Dempsey, Bocanegra effect may have waned since then.

I'm thinking of doing the map again. It was based purely on the data sent to me.
