I agree with this. When I lived in Devon 200 miles was 200 miles. Away game, home game, one magical night in Woking, it was all mostly the same to me... A30 to A303 to M3 & then usually onto M25 from there. It wasn't relevant if it was Kingsmeadow or Imperial Fields or 70% of other grounds in the league at the time.

I now live 5 minutes from Kingsmeadow & have other time/resource consuming aspects to my life like a job, a wife & kids. I think I went to Fetcham Grove about 3 times the season we were there & also the filth away since Imber Court was closer to Kingston than a home game was.

KGF was about a half hour walk which was lovely in the good weather (up until reaching the A3 where it was a windswept sun trap)... Savage in the winter but still close enough that I'd take a beating from the elements to be there.

This season I can imagine racking up a pretty similar number to the Fetcham Grove season. If we played in Kingston then I'd have the time & resource to go to many more games while I'd also be much more inclined to bring my kids which is something I'm categorically not going to do while we are in Tooting because the journey will kill off their interest (& by proxy also mine) before it has even started.

That's just my situation as one (plus potentially two halves) Kingstonian fan though, so I guess it doesn't mean a whole lot in the grand scheme of things.
