So far I’ve had the good fortune to visit 48 states with Alaska and North Dakota to be visited. Alaska in August then maybe North Dakota next year. I’ve also had the privilege of visiting 71 foreign countries, 6 continents, sailed on 3 oceans and numerous seas. Very very fortunate.  And nearly all of this with my dear wife of 39 years.

I’ve visited (spent time in) all 50 states, plus DC. I’ve also been to about 140 countries and still counting. Serious travel bug issues 😊

I have been to or at least through just about all of the United States except for Hawaii, Alaska, Vermont, Maine, Delaware, and New Hampshire.  Maybe one day.

I was a hard working farm gal but as the saying goes “you can’t keep them down on the farm forever!”. So in 1973 at age 19, I joined the USAF. It was the first time I was on a plane while flying to Lackland AB in San Antonio, TX. It wet my whistle to all things travel, as well as 2 years later for my husband, another USAF vet. We saw 15 states during our Air Force years and also lived in Germany for 2 years. After we were discharged in 1977 we went on a cross-crountry, budget tent trip visiting old USAF friends and seeing as many National Parks as we could in a 6-week period. It was a fantastic summer of seeing the beauty of 35 states! Our travels were curtailed a bit for 2 decades while raising 3 kids but we did manage additional family trips to the East Coast or Florida. When the last child got out of college in 2008, we concentrated on seeing the final 15 states with the last 3 being Alaska, Hawaii and North Dakota (for some reason we missed that state on our cross country trip) completing all 50 states by our 40th wedding anniversary in 2015. Besides the beauty, travel gives you a wealth of knowledge and appreciation for all of humanity. We are all so alike but still somewhat different no matter if you live near or far. I hope to be able to continue to travel here and overseas for years to come!
