Nope, in the USA I never got off Houston airport (been there twice for transit flights to central and south America).
That whole area around Montana is supposed to be beautiful though.
I recently noticed how beautiful Wyoming is in a movie.
Can't remember the movie, but since then I want to visit sometime
I'd say I'll visit Whitefish after Yellowstone, but Montana is about nine times bigger than the Netherlands and that would be a six hour drive
Western Montana is beautiful, as that is what the Rockies go through. Eastern Montana is flat in comparison. Wyoming is also flat in comparison. A friend doing a motorcycle trip said, "God must have great plans for Wyoming, because he didn't put anything there!" Driving through it, it became boring. That was following I25, so other parts may be more interesting. (I've made the trip a few times.) Following interstate highways that way, it is over ten hours from the border to where I grew up (next to Whitefish). For Montana scenery, check out A River Runs Through It (1992) - IMDb
I used to have one 89 years from now, but I lost it on my last trip, so now I'm stuck here!
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. Mark Twain
OK - so you get your flux capacitor, DeLorean, plutonium and stick it all together, and whack it up to 88 mph. Fat lot of good it'll do you, but I guess it's as good a way of committing suicide as any.
Forget 1,000 mph at the equator as to earth rotates on its axis, forget the 67,000 mph of the earth around the sun. Think instead of the more than half a million mph of the solar system around the galaxy. Going back 30 years - ignoring the one minute to make the transition - and accepting that with an orbit of 230,000,000 years around the galaxy so the distance can be considered as a straight line, you are going to end up in a patch of space about 135 billion miles away from the earth.
Whoops - sorry - I forgot about the local super-cluster. Hmmm... 300kms towards Virgo, say 186 mps - seems like a further 176 billion miles away.
Looks like in those 30 years the earth has moved away by up to around a third of a trillion miles. Sorry, a DeLorean just isn't that fast, so the only remaining question is the mode of your death - will it be by being frozen solid in an instant, or by exploding due to your own blood pressure.
See how much trouble you can get into by not doing your maths?
