Longest hits (in several categories)

Postby lmviterbo » Sun May 21, 2017 6:59 am

Here's a list of the longest hits in several categories. In italic, I list the longest theoretically possible links, followed by the longest known so far.

Absolute longest hit:
20015 km (to discover)

18596 km Image Christchurch (8004) - :flag-de: Wiesbaden (65185) WALDI - hippusch66 (492 days) 2013-03-31 10:24:33

Within the Euro Area (countries using the Euro = Eurozone):
17640 km :flag-fr: Base Dumont d'Urville (98414) - :flag-fr: Miquelon-Langlade (97500)
09620 km :flag-fi: Karttula (71570) - :flag-fr: Saint-Denis (97400) Ratskin - dingchavez (548 days) 2011-05-18 06:54:00

2747 km :flag-fi: Tuuri (63610) - :flag-gr: Voula / Βούλα (16673) kirasi - loup1771 (304 days) 2013-06-11 01:00:32

Dead straight horizontal line within the Euro Area:
5301 km :flag-at: Eberau (7521) - :flag-fr: Miquelon-Langlade (97500)
1252 km :flag-be: Brasschaat (2930) - :flag-pl: Lublin (20-093) E-verzamelaar - alederp (38 days) 2012-05-29 16:53:29

Other categories welcome! I'm thinking of "Within the same country — for each of the Euro Area countries" (within Germany already here, within France it's the 17640 km line mentioned above), "Within places sharing the same main official language", etc.

NOTE: this is a WIP. I had broken links to most maps for theoretically possible, so I just deleted the links and started replacing them with the correct ones (only two so far, sorry).

Longest per continent outside Europe? There aren't, admittedly, many (any?) examples.
Longest outside the Euro area per country (again, there aren't many examples...I think I remember seeing one or two all British and all American hits hehe)? Great list!

Edit - OK, just looked at the top-20 countries (or there about) outside the Eurozone with the most hits, and these are the longest national hits I found (I opted to leave out zero-km hits that, in a few cases as of this date, are the "longest" national hits in a few countries) :
