How Many States Have You Visited?

Tue Sep 04, 2007 2:53 pm

Hi Folks...
I've just finished viewing the History Channel series "The States", watching all 10 parts on DVDs.
It got me wondering to ask all of you how many states have you step foot in? Personally, I counted 28 states plus D.C. that I've visited in my 46 years of existing. And I hoped to visit the other 22 states before I die someday of old age...I'm shooting to be 100 years old.  Wink
So this being a light-hearted topic here...how many of the great 50 states have you all visited yet? D.C. and the US territories count too. All replies welcomed.
Regards.

I was too young to remember Minnesota, New Jersey, and Massachusetts though, so I'm not sure if they really count.

I connected in ATL and IAD in the past, but I don't consider myself to have visited Georgia and Virginia because I never left the airports.

I'll visit all 50 states plus the territories eventually.  Smile

Let's see...

Arizona, California, Georgia, Illinois, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia.

So that would be 19 states plus the District of Columbia. The count goes up to 21 if you include Colorado (from connecting at Denver International Airport) and Idaho (which I was in for about 10 minutes during a church service project on an Indian reservation on the Nevada-Idaho border).

I've only visited 9 states...



The next candidates are Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Nevada and Colorado - I happen to have some relatives who just moved to Jackson, WY, and it'd be a good excuse to do some travelling.

They are all great states and someday, I will get all 50.

All fifty plus Disctrict of Columbia, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, and the Panama Canal Zone. Took me a long time to get around to the last two. Took a four thousand mile drive in 2004 and planned it around finally crossing Vermont and Maine off the list. I figure that I have at least looked down from an airplane upon every square mile of the lower 48. Been to three of California's Channel Islands and would like to pick up the rest.


Lived in the states shown below:

Some for only a few months, Nevada for 30 years, right over the hill from where my great grandfather settled in 1853.
