Here's a question set:

1. What quadrangle is SE of this one?
2. Now that you're there, calculate the latitudinal, longitudinal, and UTM coordinates of the flag on my school, depicted as "Watkins High School."
3. This high school is next to a ________ road.
4. US-40 got upgraded to what is now I-64 during this time. When one leaves the map on this highway going east, how many miles does it take to reach I-170?
