Inspired by A Way With Words, the podcast I'm listening to today, I have a question for everybody:

How do you refer to an out of the way part of something? For example, you're at the mall and the parking lot is full enough that you need to use the outermost part of the lot, and end up with a long walk to the place where you're meeting your friends. When you meet up with them you say "I'm so sorry, the lot was packed and I had to park ________."

How do you fill in the blank?

I'd most likely fill it in with either in the back 40, or in the north 40.

Edit: If I was really annoyed, I might say in the back of beyond.
