North: 89° 16’ (on the Arctic Pack Ice). Or Station Nord, Greenland (on Land) 81° 36’
South: Cayenne, French Guiana
East: Baikonur, Kazakhstan
West: Kodiak, Alaska.
Highest: White Mountain Peak, California 14,246’
Lowest: Bad Water, Death Valley Nat’l Park -281’ (?)
Well, the furthest east and west isn’t particularly well defined given that one is going around the earth, but in terms of direction of travel away from home,
North - Where I live - Edmonton Alberta
South - Southern tip of the South island of New Zealand
East - My geography is lousy; whichever of Czechoslovakia, Hungary, or Yugoslavia (I went when those were the correct names) is furthest east.
West - New Zealand
Up - Probably the Franz Josef Glacier in New Zealand (I say probably because I have been in the Rocky Mountains, but I’m pretty sure Franz Josef is higher than I have ever managed up here)
Down - I have no idea
N: Labrador City
S: Palmer Peninsula, Antarctica
E: Mykonos, Greece
W: Guangzhou China (heading W from N. America)
Up: Rossland BC 1023 meters up
Down: Tongue of the Ocean Bermuda, coupla hundred meters down - Don’t remember the exact depth, but I stayed for more than 20 minutes.
Not counting airline flyovers, both my northernmost and easternmost points are Ireland (Giant’s Causeway and Wicklow respectively), and both my southernmost and westernmost are Maui (Makena and Ka’anapali respectively, unless you count on a boat off the coast, or Honolulu International).
For me, since flying doesn’t count. I guess West would be Honolulu, East would be Taipei, South would be probably Singapore (I think it is further south than Costa Rica) and North I’m really not sure… Maine or Quebec probably… maybe somewhere in Ontario… I was little so I’m not really sure.
North: Probably Quesnel, British Columbia (about 53° N), when I was very young. A close second would be Berlin, Germany (about 52° 30’ N).
South: Point Salines airport in Grenada (just a skosh north of 12° N).
East: Vienna, Austria (about 16° 20’ E).
West: Somewhere on Kauai, Hawaii (about 159° W).
Highest: Probably Tioga Pass in the Yosemite high country (9,945’ elevation).
Lowest: The visitor center in Death Valley (-190’ elevation). I’ve been through some under-sea-level tunnels, under the Hudson River and Boston Harbor, but I don’t think they go more than 190 feet below.
A bit of trivia, the highest and lowest were on consecutive days.
That can’t be right. The lowest elevation in Minneapolis is 686’, and Astoria is right on the coast.
