It seems that many people don't seem to know that the earth's circumference is over 40,000km, with over 148,000,000 square kilometres of land.

The United States alone has nearly 10million square kilometres of land, and roughly 5,000km from coast to coast -For those of you who don't speak metric, that's a hella lot of space. And for those who failed geography, that's a hella lot of space.

I've been so kind as to include a map of the world. This is a scale representation of the earth, meaning that just because it's an inch away on your screen, it may take more than an afternoon to walk that far in real life.

Please refer to it when planning a trip or looking for a partner. This will help other people on this site offer you better advice.



If you need more help interpreting this "map" or have any questions, ask your mom for help. If she has more teeth than fingers, she may be able to explain.

This looks like it could be helpfull. I'll have some time on my hands this fall, and am looking to take some trips, and I'll need a partner.
I'm looking to start in the pink titled "United States of America" just under the grey titled "Canada".

Where should I climb in the United States? I looked at your map, but I still have the same question.

KM = Kilomile, or 16,000,000,000 decimeters. In imperial that works out 2300 hogs heads

Exactly! Kilometers - they're just like tiny miles.

I am a travel nurse, located on the map under "United States" I am in a new section of the US every 3 months. I am always looking for a climbing partner and I am always willing to get on a plane to somewhere new, since walking may take too long, depending on the distance.
