Being a history teacher, I'm often thinking of geography. In our parking lot at school today, there was a rather noisy Harley idling for quite a while and I started thinking about Sturgis, South Dakota.
For those that don't know, Sturgis is the site of one of the world's largest annual motorcycle rallies. Just curious, I read up on Sturgis and this funny bit of geographical trivia kind of jumped off the page:
Did you know that the town of Clovis, New Mexico, is further east than Sturgis, South Dakota?
When I first read this, I actually had to take a quick look at a map.
