Depends a lot on the frequency and whether you're mobile or not. I have about 245 DXCC entities on 10M through 40M mobile and 35 or so more from home.

Was just curious about your definition of "DX". Sounds good to me!

And yes, it's a relative term. Lots of difference between 2 meters and 20 meters!
If you're like everybody else,
you're about average.

Captain Kilowatt will become famous soon enough

I have always thought about the same as you Larry as to what I consider long distance. On HF I consider anything within the first bounce as short distance and anything doing multiple hops as long distance. Those are just my opinions and others think differently.
There are 10 kinds of people in this world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.

And then we have the Long Path dxing and the Short Path.

But anyway, as long as we only have one earth to get our signal around, I guess it really wouldn't matter which way it goes, as long as it gets there - right?!
