描述一个处所很荒僻罕见，除用“It's off the beaten track.”以外，还可以说“It's in the middle of nowhere.”假设在美国缅因州询问本地人若何去一个荒僻罕见的处所，对方能够会说“You can't get there from here”(你从这里到不了那边）
A: How was your road trip?
B: It was a nightmare, never again.
A: What happened? I thought you said it would be the trip of a lifetime.
B: It was one disaster after another from the moment we left.
A: That's a shame, do tell.
B: We had a blow out after an hour of driving and then ran out of gas a few hours later.
A: Didn't you take a Jerrycan of gas?
B: No, I didn't think of it. Then we ran into a wild deer at sunset.
A: Didn't you slow down at dusk? That's when all the wild animals start roaming onto the roads.
B: Oh, I didn't know that. Then we camped by a river and were eaten alive by mosquitoes.
A: No insect repellent?
B: Nope, didn't think I'd need it.
