Know your States?

This is a fun test.  Those in the middle can be tricky without other boundarys.  It's different each time.

I missed Kentucky by over 100 miles. ::) I always knew that I was lost and didn't know where I lived. In my defense it was one of the early states to come up and I didn't have anything to go by. Like scgargoyle, I kind of missed Kalafornia a little to the left. ;)

First one was 92%, 25 mile error and 415 seconds.
