    "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.

    in the boondocks - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary,

    Unless you live in a cave in a far away area in the boondocks, you have most likely seen on television, or witnessed live, events that happen in real time.

    "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?
