For all its already-noted faults (and I might add that Kirk coming from IOWA, not IDAHO [an error of over 1000 miles], is canonical ["I'm from Iowa; I just work in outer space," from The Voyage Home], and Winnona Kirk being a farmer, not a career Starfleet officer is generally agreed in non-canonical sources, and strongly suggested in canon), it went rather quickly, mostly on the train ride home from my Spring vacation.
Just a quick note, the Idaho reference comes from Star Trek: Generations, in which Kirk mentions that he spent a lot of time on his "uncle's farm in Idaho." He doesn't say that he "comes from" Idaho at any point.
