It is used in my part of the US, as SteveC commented it probably is archaic. I might hear my 88 year old father in law say it, but never my kids or grand kids.
With urbanization the phrase has slowly disappeared.
Most people use a City Mile now, or just "mile".

I wonder if those in Europe use the phrase "country kilometer".
In Europe (+Canada, Australia etc) we use kilometre.

Hi Maximilian.
Damn you my friend, that is five minutes I can’t get back and I now no more about Miles than I ever needed to know! :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Cheers, Graham.

In Germany we spell it "Kilometer" ;)


A "Kilometer" is always a "Kilometer" is always 1000 Meter.
Up to the late 19th century there was a German "Landmeile" which was 7532,5 Meter, see here.
