Hint to Puzzle #42: 100 miles South, East & North - Back Where You Started

42. You are at a point on the Earth. You travel South 100 miles, East 100 Miles and North 100 Miles. You arrive back where you started. Where are you? You are NOT at the North Pole.
The puzzle looks easy until you hear that you are not at the North Pole right? There are an infinite number of other positions that also satisfy the criteria.

My first clue is that you are on Antarctica somewhere. The solution will not involve any tricks with negative numbers, the answer is honest.

My next clue is a diagram from the answer page. It's hidden currently. Seeing it may be too big of a clue.

If you get the idea from the above diagram, do you have a numerical answer? Is it accurate?
