    in the sticks

    "Boondocks" = AE only, as LEO rightly points out. A British alternative:

    We live way out in the sticks and I need the car every day to get to work.

    "Boondocks" is very familar to me being American. My Australian friend had never heard of it and after hearing the explanation said, "Ah! Woop Woop".

    @noli: What's the problem with w's entry?
