Traveling Bug

I was looking at a map,
and I recounted my few trips across our great nation,
and was counting states I have been in or through.
I am fortunate to have many wonderful memories
(actually considering the late seventies I am lucky to have any memory at all)

So as I counted I came up with 25 states I have been in or through.
Truth be told there were times I drove through a state and never got out of the car.
I will not bore you with the list now, but be aware that if super Lotto ever comes my way,
(Please God!)
I will pilot a super sized RV andcd get myself ( and my small entourage) to the rest of the states.
I am mostly missing the deep south, and the upper midwest.

I am not sure if I should claim Alaska, since I was in the Anchorage airport on a trip to Japan in 1971. ( i was a wee lad)

How many states have YOU been in or through? and where will your next visit be
(with or without a Jackpot)?

Have a fun weekend - my trusted computer is having a weekend in the shop, Grrrr!
Instead of withdrawal, I am choosing to make bean soup, apple butter, and Lemon Bars.
and Maybe watch it snow.....

Here from Michele.
I've been through or lived in 30 states. The only ones I haven't made it to are in the far northwest and the far northeast and Alaska and Hawaii. The south and midwest and southern part of New England.... pretty solid.

Hi from Michele's...
Great blog entry. I've been through all the New England states and most of the southeast. Also Wisconsin, Arizona and California. So that still leaves a lot of the US to visit.
Great idea for your RV...and if you do it, enjoy all those moments.

Not many as I live in England, but have visited the east side of the US

BTW Michele sent me.

Actually... Michele didn't send me, I linked over here from snaggletooth's blog.

I did this exercise once or twice before and came up with something like 20 different states. I don't count it if I just changed planes and never got out of the airport. Therefore, when the same question is set in an international frame, I do not claim Taiwan or Hong Kong... never left the airport.


Oh yes, I would jump in that RV as soon as I get the chance - Lotto or not!

Wish I'd kept track on my teen tour--I think it's more than 25, but so many were just quick stops. I don't like to travel, but would like to get back to Texas at some point, as well as to Graceland. And I want to go back to Canada, which isn't a state at all.

Here from Michele.
