Thanks, I like to come back to this quiz every so often to see how many I remember (average score is around 40, only because I've been to 25-30 so I remember those better).

Just wondering if you'd consider taking "Chattahoochee" as an acceptable answer for "Chattahoochee-Oconee" and "Winema" for "Fremont-Winema"

Great Job - Nice work! I combined forests like 'Humboldt-Toiyabe' or 'Fremont-Winema since they are officially connected. I like how you kept them separate.

Nice quiz, but I found a couple errors:

Virginia is VA, not VI (George Washington and Jefferson).

Quachita should be Ouachita.

Thanks for your observations! I've corrected Virginia but don't see any issues with Quachita - I've rechecked the spelling which appears to be correct.

The two least guessed national forests say Kistchie and Quachita - these are both misspelled. Kisatchie should have an A in it, and Ouachita doesn't have a Q it has an O, like the Ouachita Mountains.

Can't forget about our homie Tom, the Big Bee! Tombigbee is a 6th one in Mississippi.

Your total number of national forests can stay unchanged though, as Land Between The Lakes is a National Recreation Area and while it's accidentally on a wikipedia list it isn't at all a national forest. Beautiful I'm sure but it deserves its own list with the other recreation areas like Flaming Gorge, Lake Meade, Golden Gate, etc.

TBH I raced up to level 15 to comment on here because I like the quiz so much and just wanna see my favorite named one in it. Thanks for having this quiz, it goes well with the NF map one!
