Geography quiz

If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it fits here

Geography quiz

Error: 0 miles
Time: 263 seconds
First state: Indiana

Probably would have been harder if my first state had been one of those landlocked ones...

142 seconds? Somebody's had their coffee today!

Just tried it again. Got Wyoming as the third state, with nothing even remotely close to use as a guide.

Error: 6 miles
Time: 199 seconds
First state: North Carolina

Third time, and I'm getting faster:

Score: 100%
Error: 0 miles
Time: 150 seconds

First state was West Virginia.

I think I'd better rest on my laurels here.

I don't remember my time, sorry. Had an 8 mile error average, not too bad. I'll try it again and note the time.

Can't move things around very fast on a laptop with a touch pad. I'll try later with another computer. I knew where all the states went, but my times were terrible.

80% 35 miles 323 seconds.

I'm having a hard time believing some of your low average miles scores people, cuz I know my geography and had them all very close if not right on. You're all very fast too. Hmm...drugs no doubt.

I think I've linked to this one before..http://www.lizardpoint.com/fun/geoquiz/afrquiz.html
