That's sweet. I find E & W compass points far more interesting than N & S

Especially if you have been to the island closest to the date line, both west and east. Probably some sailor made it, but few of us mortals I guess

When I drove across Canada on Highway 1 from East to West, I past a few road signs that read - "Please put your clock back one hour". Strange to think that an inch behind the sign, was an hour in front.

Furthest east (on land): Busan, Korea
Furthest west: Oahu, Hawaii
(But east and west are relative terms, I guess.)

I had a similar experience on the Trans-Siberian, where the time zone changed every 16 hours or so. And the train itself runs on Moscow time, to add to the confusion. I've experienced jet-lag lots of times, but that's the first time I've ever had "train-lag".

That's interesting. You refer to east and west from the place you live (US) instead of on the world map (coordinates). Hadn't thought about it that way, but again interesting.

Try 55mph maximum legal speed day after day, in a car that's capable of around 140mph (re: Canada) and I got car lag

You always have to try to speed a little. Did that as well in Canada, though not 140...well not in mph
