Re: How many U.S. states have you been to?

I'm a Georgia boy born and bred. But I spent 12 of my 65 years residing in North Carolina and being homesick for Georgia from age 47 until age 59 (and no, I wasn't in jail if that's what you're thinking) LOL. I've always been a geography geek and can remember almost every place my travels and God have taken me. I've visited 28 states in which I spent at least one night. I don't know if this counts, but I've set foot in 6 other states for a couple of hours at airport hubs on layovers waiting for connecting flights. I also don't know if this counts either, but I've flown over the airspace of 13 other states and seen them from 33,000 feet up. The only 3 states I've neither set foot in nor flown over are Alaska, Maine and Vermont. I went to Australia in 1980. However I only saw the Honolulu airport at midnight during Qantas refueling stops on my trip over to and my return trip from Sydney. Hawaii would be the place I'd like to revisit, but for 2 weeks instead of 2 hours !!

I've traveled in all 50 states -- on a motorcycle!  135,000 miles in 15 years.  I also hit all of the southern provinces of Canada.

I have visited 43 states (including Hawaii and Alaska) and driven across the country once.  We will drive across the US again so I can get the remaining six.

Luckily enough I got #50, Alaska, this summer. Jet Blue did a big welcome to Alaska  my 50th state at the Anchorage airport for me.

I encourage everyone to visit all of America before going elsewhere as there is so much to see and enjoy.
