Home Glob Radius King

Radius of the largest circle, centered at one's home, such
that no unclaimed county lies within the circle.
This category defines how one is doing in one's home area.
Perversely, it also defines the minimum distance one must
travel to add a single county.

Parentheses indicate the closest unclimbed county.

One is not "penalized" for foreign countries.
Alaska and Hawaii residents constitute special cases.
