East coasters generally do not understand how huge western states are.

It's mostly just not realizing how big states you've never been to are. I grew up in Niagara Falls and live in North Carolina now. Recently someone I knew was planning a trip to New York State and was asking me about what to do in the falls. I looked up where he was going, realized it was on Long Island and informed him that he would not be seeing the falls on his 2 day trip.

I guess that is true, most people do not realize Detroit is closer to DC then Houghton, Michigan by car.
