How Well Do You Know The States?

How well do you know where all of the states are at? As much as we travel we should know them pretty well; here is a web site where you can have a little fun!

That's like the puzzle board I had when I was a kid. I missed a couple early on because I didn't get them just exactly in the right location 95%, average error 5 miles, 307 seconds.

I got 90%, 15 miles, in 373, and I was pretty darn proud of myself. Some of them were stumpers, like those itty bitty eastern states, and trying to drop Indiana where it belongs with no references around it was tough. I think our trip to OK and back last year really solidified my understanding of where the big states are located. Thanks for the game!

94% 10 miles 377 seconds... Not to bad for a european like me Now you name the countries of the european union, ok? DonŽt be afraid, youŽll make it... To be honest I really skrew up with Arkansas (to far south and to far east...) and Vermaont was a little to far left to be right in place.

Best wishes to all you airstreamers out there!

94% in 533 sec. I had to answer the telephone in between. They could have started with an easier state than Iowa. I probably would have done better.

Sigh

After the suggestion to try the European Countries I had to try and find that map. On the European Countries I got an average of 70%. I was amazed I did that good. I get about 94% on the states!


Here is the main web site.
