Looks quite impressive to me

I'll have a go at that later

create your own visited states map
or check out these Google Hacks.

I cheated a bit

I included two that were just stopovers :)

Done some flying, huh? :-> That map would be pretty hard to explain, otherwise!
Jul. 5th, 2006 06:49 am (UTC)
Indeed I have :)

Kind of difficult to get from here to any of those places otherwise .

As to your wanting to visit every state ..planty of time yet. I still haven't visited every county in the UK :)

I used to think I had plenty of time ... these days, sometimes I can't help thinking times a' wasting ...
Jul. 5th, 2006 07:05 am (UTC)
Nah, plenty of time yet ( as long as you stay away from overheated propane tanks!!) Once the children are grown and gone that's the time to dust off those maps and travel . I've done most of my travelling in the past ten years ... before that I was mostly too busy and too poor :)

Propane tanks! Ham and eggs are what will get me. :-)

That's not cheating - you were there. (I think it might be cheating if you include states whose airspace you've been through....)

"(I think it might be cheating if you include states whose airspace you've been through....)"

If I tried that I'd give myself third degree brain boggle! American geography not being my strong point :)

Sadly, a lot of Americans aren't too good at geography. I don't mean a little unfamiliar -- I'm talking couldn't map themselves out of a paper bag. But then, we all have our weaknesses; mine is math.

I believe that's the best criterea. If you set foot on the state, you were there, but if you flew over it, it doesn't count.

As a person who had planned to visit every state before turning 30, to me it looks pathetic ... especially since some of those states were only visited once or twice. But some traveling's better than none, I guess!
Jul. 4th, 2006 05:48 pm (UTC)
Pfft, if that's pathetic than I don't know what I am because I've been to far less states than that.
Jul. 4th, 2006 11:12 pm (UTC)
I guess I shouldn't feel so bad. It's just that I love traveling, especially road trips, and it sucks that I didn't use to have the time to do it, and now I don't have the money. On the brighter side, I'm now traveling through cyberspace quite a bit! The view through the window doesn't change much, though.

My fantasy roadtrip - but one I still hope to make a reality one day - is to drive to Alaska. (I have cousins there so once I get there I have a place to stay.) When I first planned it out I was still in Indiana, so I wanted to drive north through Michigan, then west across Canada, then on the way back, south to Nevada (visit my mom) and back east across the USA. Not giving up on some version of this one!

I've had that same roadtrip fantasy. A summer trip across Canada and up to Alaska, then down the west coast, and a trip back across the continent through the southern US. In my fantasy, I made the trip last until the next spring.
Jul. 4th, 2006 08:51 pm (UTC)
ahha. Road trip, anyone?
Jul. 4th, 2006 11:13 pm (UTC)
if only
Sounds good to me. We could save money by staying at flist homes. :-) I wonder what kind of surprises we'd encounter?

True, but I've only been out of the states once; and that was only over the boarder for a couple of hours. It all depends on how you look at it!
Jul. 5th, 2006 06:45 pm (UTC)
ew, it looks like an election map.

What the hell was in Georgia?

When I first started dating my ex-wife, she had a friend who'd moved to Atlanta the year before and we took a week off to go down and visit her. The car broke down in Tenessee and the cold November weather followed us all the way down there. Maybe I should have taken those as a warning about our relationship.
Jul. 6th, 2006 08:11 am (UTC)
LOL... well mine would be none.
Jul. 6th, 2006 09:11 am (UTC)
Good point! It all depends on your perspective. But it's a great big, wide open country, full of all sorts of neat things to see, and I'd like to see all of it.
