  • The Four Directions

    What is the farthest North, South, East and West you have been thus far in your life? (Flyovers, sea or land contact is included).

    OK - I'll go first...

    NORTH - Thule, Greenland, August 1990
    SOUTH - McMurdo Station (US), Antarctica, Jan-Feb 1991
    EAST - Bremerhaven, Germany, August 1990
    WEST - Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, December 1990

    All of the above were by sea, onboard USCGC Polar Sea (WAGB-11).

                    Hey Succubus...would'nt Russia be considered north? LOL I am a little lost when it comes to geography ...I guess since I live up here in Alaska and Russia is West of us...I would consider it west...but from down below I would consider it north... Oh I don't know...I was wondering if I should have put Hawaii as both west and east ????? It is kinda floating out there in the middle of that line is'nt it???

                              Are you a Golden Dragon? We crossed "the place" and I am a Golden Shellback. I am also a Bluenose Polar Bear, and whatever we became in Antarctica (besides colder than hell).

                                North Dakota’s minority population is growing and the number of white residents is declining, new Census Bureau estimates show.

                                Still, fewer than one in 10 North Dakotans is a minority, said Richard Rathge, the state...
