DC's reputation is a hot miserable swamp in the summer
I’m from bama so I don’t find it bad at all. Not a ton of humidity … relative to the south at least
This is awesome. I had never heard about this.
I knew those lands out there used to be a lot closer together with lower sea levels. The Polynesian explorers still had to make that leap of faith to go over the horizon in a canoe, but the landing spots were at least more numerous. You look at those forlorn South Pacific islands now and wonder how the hell people ever got there. Sadly, the island quality greatly decreases as you get away from New Zealand. Whoever went looking for a richer land got diminishing returns

Farthest north: Anchorage (61 degrees North)
Farthest south: Buenos Aires (34 degrees South)
Farthest east: Tokyo (140 degrees East)
Farthest west: Anchorage (150 degrees West)
North: Giants Causway, Northern Ireland (55 N)
East: Vienna, Austria (16 E)
South: Negril, Jamaica (18 N)
West: Boulder, Colorado (105 W)
My furthest West is also furthest north - skagway, ak
My furthest East is also furthest south - Barbados
there have been many times while watching movies or whatnot that I’ve wondered how people weren’t just sweaty as fuck back in the old days based on what they wore but then I look at a map and also remember these people weren’t living in a place like Florida and were way north in a place equivalent to Canada
North: Reykjavik 64 N
East: Amsterdam 4 E
South: Jaco, Costa Rico 9 N
West: Sacramento 121 W
Does Hawaii count as west or east
West & north: anchorage
East: Portsmouth, ME
never been outside the US except a few hours in Tijuana when I was 7.
Pretty sure there’s disagreement amongst geologists over whether this actually constitutes a continent.
North: London 51.5 N
East: Zagreb 16 E
South: Tampa 28 N
West: Olympic NP 124 W
(I flew to Zagreb once with a stopover in London - other than that I just drive around the US.)
It wasn't considered a contitnent when I was in school and IDK if I'd consider it one now since it's underwater.
But we also had only 4 oceans back then. Now we have the Southern Ocean.
Can we get a sea wall and a few windmills over there?
Do layovers count? I took IcelandicAir and went through Reykjavik but didn’t leave the airport
I assume no
For a “have you visited ________ “ discussion airports don’t count, but for this one just mentioning farthest locations you’ve been I’d say they do.
Reykjavik (64) if that counts
Manchester (53.5) if it doesn’t
Santa Monica (-118.5)
East - Doha at 51 East
North - Szczecin, Poland at 53 North
South - Yaoundé, Cameroon at 3 degrees south
West - Oahu at 158 West
my criteria is that I have to have left the airport and seen/done something to count as having been there. For example, I once had a 50 minute layover in San Salvador so I don't count El Salvador as a country I've visited, but I had a 14 hour layover in Tokyo once in which we took a train into Asakusa, looked around a bit, had lunch, then headed back to the airport so I do say I've been to Tokyo.
North/West: Anchorage, Alaska
East: Tianjin, China
South: Kingston, Jamaica
Budapest: 19.0402° E
Vancouver: 123.1207° W
Copenhagen: 55.6761° N (also had a quick flight stoppage at Reykjavik).
Cancun: 21.1619° N
Actually been slightly more north of Copenhagen and slightly further south of Cancun, but left it at major cities.
Farthest north: Anchorage/Kenai peninsula
Farthest south: Cape Town or Buenos Aires (?)
Farthest east: Seoul (???)
Farthest west: Anchorage or Kauai (???)
TBH the east/west thing is confusing me because earth is round. Yall know that, right?
Highest and lowest point?
Highest: Mt. Salkantay, Peru -- somewhere above 15K but below 20K
Lowest: Danakil Depression, Ethiopia -- 410 ft below sea level
North: Tolovana, Alaska
West: Kauai, Hawaii
South: Sayulita, Mexico
East: Munich, Germany
Depends on which direction you’re going
It’s west of the international date line and it’s in the Western Hemisphere. It’s west.
But if you travel in an eastward direction to get to Hawaii then it would be east.
That’s about as dumb and circular as this argument.
That makes no sense. Is it not round north and south as well?
The real question is has anyone been to 0,0 and 0,180?
Yes but we generally accept there is a top and a bottom because of the way the earth rotates on its axis.
South and East: San Juan, Puerto Rico Aguadilla, Puerto Rico
West: Dallas, Texas
North: New Wilmington, PA
you’ve never been west of Dallas? That explains a lot.
I'm not much of a traveler. Don't sleep worth a shit away from home.
West and North Seattle
North: Ear Falls, Ontario
West: Ewa Beach, Oahu
East and South: Philipsburg, Sint Maarten
Going places costs dollars
Even I've been to Arlington.
North: Arctic Circle in the Norwegian Sea
South: Roatan, Honduras
East: The Black Sea
West: Los Angeles
So I'm still confused.
What's the farthest east and farthest west you can go?
That’s still like 5 clicks, no thank you sir
North: San Sebastian
North: Edmonton Alberta - 53.5 N
South: Hobart Tasmania - 42.9 S
East: Brisbane Queensland - 153.0 E
West: Wahiawa Oahu - 158.0 W
North: Plattsburgh, NY
South: Naalehu, Hawaii
West: Kaanapali, Maui, Hawaii
East: Selcuk, Turkey
Look at the map coordinates. If it’s +, that’s East. It -, it’s West.
