Must have something to do with the Upper Peninsula and Lower Peninsula's separation

I'm not. I live just north of Chicago and it's about a 9 hour drive to the southern tip and a 1 hour drive to Wisconsin.

Again? This is the first time this quiz has ever been featured. Although I made it a couple months ago.

I was just nagging ya about the use of the word “tall” instead of “long.” I was thinking of how the “taller states than they are wide” quiz, which was featured a couple of weeks ago, used the same terminology.

In the blurb for this quiz on the front page, it says "Name the states that have the longest average north-south span." However, in the quiz instructions it says "Name the states that have the longest maximum north/south spans." Which is it? Also, one of them should be changed for consistency.

I think that this should be a yellow box quiz.
