Check out Angel Inlet, Minnesota. The northernmost area of the lower 48. It's the only place in the USA that has to be accessed by leaving the USA crossing into Canada, then back into the USA to Angel Inlet. It's an interesting place.

Are you kidding? I love maps. I also love maps that show places that no longer exist because they are OLD maps.

wow...always thought i was the only weirdo to do that?

i have a giant wallmap in my room and i frequently look up random countries and then go on wikipedia and find out as much as i can about them.

I've memorized all those weird countries in Eurasia that end in "-stan", where they are geographically, their populations, and largest industries. i love being able to tell people the capitals of countries they've never heard of. i also delight in making up trivia games based on geography, like "which south american country has 2 capitals?"

makes for entertaining road trips, seriously!

i also love looking at random lists that rank stuff. Like which 3 states get the MOST rainfall per year, and which 3 get the least. kinda related to geography, i guess.
