I am not good at Geography and did not want to take the time to look it all up so I just did not bother. Kind of boring anyhow.

Good one, but not my thing.

I think it was very fun. It's kind of deceptive, it doesn't sound like you're looking for something like compass directions. And that's a good thing. I didn't get it though, but I kind of gave up early.

Took time and thought it out. Great teaser.

Tend to agree with Babe. The riddle is vague and not very interesting (even if a new one).

I thought it was a good one!

I thought about looking up a map and writing down all of the possible states that would fit the puzzle and go from there. Right now, I am pretty tired (lazy) and didn't do it - just looked up the answer. Now I wish I would have taken the trouble or at least saved the puzzle until later! - It would have been fun. Nice Quiz!!
