So very true about the Dakotas!!

 

Northern North Dakota is a beautiful drive when the canola and flax crops are in bloom.

All fifty of them!   That was our first major goal. 

Lol, it was fun being corrected by people after we said Alaska was our fiftieth state (“Oh no!  Hawaii is our 50th state.”).  We neglected to add “...50th state to visit.”

 

Our next goal was to set foot on every continent.  We accomplished that goal this past December.  

 

Now to see/touch the Arctic Ocean!

I have been to 20 states, some more than once, plus Washington DC.  The states are Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.  Have also been to Mexico, Spain, France, England and Scotland but that was in the late 70's.  Did take a trip as a child, with my parents along the New England coast to Canada.  Have very few memories of the trip as I was only 7 at the time.  There is only one state I still want to visit and that is Alaska.  Now that I am retired and living on a fixed income I don't know if I'll be able to make that trip but I can dream.

I’ve been to 47 states and I must say I’ve enjoyed each one of them for their own unique beauty, culture, economy and history. I’ve noted that a number of respondents haven’t yet been to the Dakotas, or more specifically North Dakota, and can say I’ve found both of these states to be rewarding in what they offer, especially in their western regions (Blackhills in SD and the Badlands/Teddy Roosevelt sites in ND). Remaining on my list are three gems (New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine). We plan to visit these three states later this year and also add the Canadian provinces of Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia to complete our list for the U.S., with Newfoundland, Yukon Territories, Northwest Territories and Nunavik remaining in Canada.

We have visited each of the fifty states and each of the state capitols except Trenton NJ , which was deemed too dangerous to walk!. We did this through the American Volkssport Association, (http://www.ava.org). These capitol walks were generally 10k (6.2 miles) in length. At the same time, we completed similar walks in each of the ten Canadian Provinces, but not the three territories.
