Yes, my fix on the globe was way off but that was the point. Like you said, and I taught to my student pilots - you are never really lost.
You know you are in the north Atlantic, not Africa or near Pago Pago, not near Madagasgar. I was proving to myself that three tries is all you need.
I know where my backyard is for I have fixed it's position many times so these games are fun for me. My problem with this set of data was no starting point - so my use of the globe.
