  1. There was one like this a while back, but lets do it again
    And for the highest, only include on land obviously

    For me;

    North - Giants Causeway, Northern Ireland -
    55°14'26.8"N

    South - Bottom of Tasmania, Australia (on a cruise ship) -
    43°39'07.7"S

    East - Korotogo, Fiji -
    177°33'25.2"E

    West - Los Angeles, California -
    118°30'14.5"W

    Highest - Genting Highlands, Malaysia - 1865 metres above sea level

    EDIT: Adding hottest/coldest natural air temperature;
    Most hot - Canberra, when I was young, kids were being sent home from school at 47C
    Coldest - Harbin, China -23C

    North - Inverness, Scotland
    57.477772

    South - Monterey, California
    36.143940

    East - Innsbruck, Austria
    11.404102

    Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
    -123.365646

    Highest - Pic Blanc at Alpe d'Huez, France - 3300m / 10823ft


    I need to cross the Equator and also visit Asia at some point
     
  3. ate like 3 doses of weed brownie once, with zero tolerance
    felt like I was thinking in litebrite
    threw up for a few hours shortly after
     
  4. North - Alesund, Norway.
    South - the border between Kenya and Tanzania, where the Massai Mara and the Serengeti meet.
    West - Eureka, California, or maybe somewhere along the coast between it and Washington, like Cape Blanco.
    East - Tokyo, Japan.
     
  5. North - Rovaniemi as a kid, only gone up to Veteli as an adult 63°30´
    South - Gran Canaria 27°45´
    West - New York 74W°
    East - Imatra 29E°

    Curiously both North and East are reached in Finland.

    Highest place crossing Stelvio pass at 2,757 m

    Highest temp 33C in my hometown Turku.
    Lowest -30 something. I remember several occasions when the winter temp has begun with three, but as I have not ventured often to north or east from our coast the minus 40C temps have evaded me.
     
  6. Forgot to add highest place - I would estimate around 2,500 meters on several occasions - somewhere in Kenya, around Mount Fuji, Whistler (BC) and around Mount Rainier.
    I'll also add the lowest, because I can, at -413 meters near the Dead Sea.

    Lowest temp would probably be around -2 or -3C. Highest is probably 45-46C.
