    I'd think furthest South might be Texas?

    So I'd go with Main for East, Hawaii for West, Texas for South and Alaska for North.

    Wait a minute. Is Hawaii further South than Texas?[This Message was Edited on 10/11/2007]

    I think you're right. It's Hawaii. Actually I think Hawaii is the answer to all the questions.

    (When I was young and lived in Minnesota, it was the state farthest north, but due to worbal gloaming, this is no longer true.)

    Due to an illusion caused by the convergence of the mercator lines and during periods of neap tides and encroaching northern lights, it may appear that some state are, but notwithstanding the correct answer is Hawaii.

    Or as the Hawaiians say, Kahleokeealahooey!

    Good one, Doober.

    Ok, in the now famous words of the Geico caveman, um, what?

    We're back on the tide question again!

    Which state is the furthest North? Alaska

    Which state is the furthest South? Hawaii

    Which state is the furthest East? Alaska

    Which state is the Furthest West? Alaska

    Alaska is the furthest East and West because the island chain that a part of Alaska are on the line that separates the eastern and western hemisphere.

    So if you live on the Alaska Island Chain how do you give directions? Do you live on the east side or the west side? Does the sun rise and set at the same time? Enquiring minds want to know. Yup I need a life.
