Still blows me down that the distance of I-10 within TX is greater than the distances on I-10 to either coast from TX.

Dalhart, TX is closer to parts of twenty three states than it is to its own state's capital.

23? Shenanigans. More like eight or nine

12 plus two Mexican states, actually :sombrero:. There is even a part in extreme southwestern Iowa that is closer to Dalhart TX than Texas capitol is.

Despite being in Southwestern Europe, I actually live just North of the latitude of Cape Cod.

Edit to add that Virginia actually reaches farther West than West Virginia.

roadman65:
Staten Island, NY is closer to NJ than it is to the rest of its own state.

Pennsville , NJ is New Jersey's westernmost point and yet is west of Allentown, PA.  Also west of Carbondale, PA further north being several miles west of Milford on US 6.
