3: States that border the Ocean of the Pacific. It’s not really that pacific, but it was when discovered, so it’s like someone who meets your little terror of a monster when he’s having an unusual good day and someone wants to call him a sweet little boy. Off Oregon, it can be really nasty on regular basis.
4: States that border Mexico. That fence doesn’t need to be very big across the bottom of California or New Mexico, but Arizona needs quite a bit and Texas has as much as the others combined, as I can best figure. A lot of very high-powered radio stations used to be right on the border, just inside Mexico and you could hear them anywhere.
5: States that border the Gulf of Mexico. Texas does double duty here, as its southeast coast is water and its southwestern coast is desert. Florida has the most, due mostly to its panhandle. Alabama gets its toe wet and Mississippi does not much better. Louisiana actually extends eastward almost to Alabama.
13: States that border the Atlantic Ocean. Otherwise known as the I-95 Corridor (or the Route 1 Corridor). Florida does double duty here.
10: States that border Canada. Montana is widest, next to Idaho, skinny on top like a chimney.
