Thought it might be the equator...until I read your hint. It's where I'm from.

I liked it. It made me think of a minute, but I got it in the end. Hope to get to visit Alaska someday.

Wow. Great teasers. Loved it!

The explanation for this answer is incorrect. The International Date Line does not pass through any country. However, Alaska does cross the 180 degree longitude which does cause it to be both the furthest east and west. However the date does not change when you cross the 180. Check a map or globe and you will see what I mean. Good Teaser though!

East and west don't change depending on where you are at. What is East for one may be west for another. Just because it crosses over some line doesn't mean you aren't going west anymore. I'm not usually critical, but I think this one should have stayed at home.

Good One!

What is most eastern or western depends on one's point of view about what east and west really mean. But your Alaskan points would be correct. Good teaser.
