Word-of-Day-Challenge-Hot

To a degree we were surprised…

…that we were in shirt sleeves…

 

…at Wiseman, Alaska.

 

At 67 degrees North,

 

and 63 miles (or 100 kilometres)

inside the Arctic Circle…

…we were 30 degrees further north

than Geelong (38 degrees) is South.

One degree equals 69 mile/111 kilometres

Therefore 30 degrees equals

2,070 miles or 3,330 kilometres.

Google says the straight line distance between

Geelong and Hobart is only 572 km.
