Update!

West: -124.414 in Ruby Beach, Washington
East: -14.306 near Djúpivogur, Iceland
North: 66.185 near Siglufjörður, Iceland
South: 24.550 in Key West, Florida

West: -156.793 in Utqiagvik (Barrow), Alaska
East: -14.306 near Djúpivogur, Iceland
North: 71.287 in Utqiagvik (Barrow), Alaska
South: 17.724 in St Croix, USVI

What's fun is that with my west and north extremes in the same place, I have been to one of the corners of my current "box".

Yeah, I've probably been to a smaller range than most people. That will change next summer, as I'll be going MUCH further west and further north.

North: NB 95 near the Maine border (46.157871, -67.739582)
East: The Walmart and Swiss Chalet just east of Saint John, NB (45.307218, -66.019653). This is about 50 miles further east than the easternmost point in the US, which I have been to as well.
South: The southernmost point of the St. Charles Streetcar in New Orleans (29.926012, -90.106980).
West: MN 41 in Chaska, MN (44.789497, -93.602055)

E-W span is roughly 27 degrees (that will double next summer), N-S is 16.

Let's update this for travels I have made in the last year. 3 of these points have changed, all quite significantly:

North: This connecting track in Bicester, Oxfordshire, UK (51.898804, -1.138811)
East: Buckhurst Hill station, Essex, UK (51.626518, 0.046699)
South: The southernmost point of the St. Charles Streetcar in New Orleans (29.926012, -90.106980) [unchanged]
West: NB US 101 between 9th Street and Cooper Avenue, Crescent City, CA, USA (41.760104, -124.197834)

E-W span is now a little over 124 degrees, N-S span is up to a little under 22 degrees.
