BINGO!!!   cheers

So the thread is open for more trivia puzzles.

For example, in the US 1) what is the northern-most state; 2) what is the western-most; 3) what is the southern-most? and 4) what is the eastern-most?

Erm...trick question.

Hmmm ... I'm going to guess that Alaska is northern-most, Maine is eastern-most and that Hawaii is both western-most and southern-most ... ?

Just been reading that Alaska, is the Northern-most, Eastern-most and Western-most, because of the Aleutian Islands, is this what you mean?

Hawaii would still have to be the southern-most.

Now, the "Most Southern?" Undoubtedly Alabama Smile

BINGO!  Gd. job, Didge.

Alaska is obviously the northern-most, and it's no stretch of imagination to see it is the western-most state.  But the Aleutian Islands are every bit a part of Alaska, and they stretch across the hemisphere line to the eastern half.  So Alaska is also the eastern-most state.

Alaska is a huge territory, stretching almost as far as the width of the whole Continental US.



The most eastern point of the United States is called Pochnoi Point on Semisopochnoi Island in Alaska, almost touching Russia.  Lol.  It sits only 23 minutes west of the 180th meridian, and therefore it is in the Eastern Hemisphere.

And BINGO for the whole answer, Cass.  Yep, Hawai'i is the southern-most by quite a distance.



It is a common misconception that Hawaii is not the southernmost state because Hawaii does not appear in its geographical location on most maps of the United States. It is common for people to not be familiar with Hawaii's exact location. The southernmost point of the entire 50 states is Ka Lae, Hawaii, while the southernmost town is N?'?lehu, Hawaii. The southernmost point in the continental United States that is continuously above water is Ballast Key, Florida.  http://www.ask.com/geography/southernmost-state-united-states-15bd010d26563eaa

Oh, and extra snaps for Alaska Cass, which you also got.
