I think the other posters have pretty much covered my personal opinion, so I'll tell you about a survey I did for the state of Kansas. One of the questions was about how far one had to go for health care, and how satisfactory that distance was. We had people complain that their health care provider in Wichita had moved, necessitating a 30 minute drive, and that was unacceptable, and people who said that a 3 hour drive in the western plains was perfectly acceptable. So while it depends upon individuals, there's also the matter of how far one and one's neighbors have to travel. If you're used to having things right in your neighborhood, having to leave the neighborhood may seem 'too far', but if you're used to driving an hour to get to a store, and several hours to get to a town that's big enough to have a variety of shopping, then a couple of hours travel doesn't seem far. The comfort of the trip also mattered. I had one Native American woman tell me that her 75 mile trip to the Indian Health Services clinic usually wasn't too bad, but the time she was so sick she couldn't sit up and had to lie down on a mattress in the bed of the pickup to make the trip, now THAT was too far. (For those who don't live in the USA: the IHS provides free care to Native Americans as part of treaty rights of the tribes, and seeing a doctor locally would have meant she would have had to have paid for all her treatment from her own pocket; her family simply couldn't afford that).
I used to have a 10 hour trip to visit my parents. I recently relocated so that the trip is now 5 hours, which is a great improvement; I can now go for a weekend by leaving work early and driving on Friday, having Saturday to visit, and coming back on Sunday afternoon. Before, it meant 2 days to drive, so I had to have at least a 3 day weekend.
