A term used to describe any middle-of-nowhere, backwoods area, particularly one that is a long distance away. Derived from bumfuck, also used to describe a similar location. The addition of "egypt" originated in the Midwest, describing the "Little Egypt" region of Illinois, an extremely rural area compared to the urban Northern Illinois. See also BFE.

Actually, it means that you live in the middle of nowhere - in the boonies - out in the boondocks - in an extremely rural or out-of-the-way area. Destination has nothing to do with it.
If the nearest place to buy gas for your car is an hour's drive away, you live in bumfuckegypt!
