    Oh gosh no, it's 50 in 50 years. Which it won't take 50 years, but it's a nice moniker.

    But the 14 visited have been: Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Kansas, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Wyoming, New York, Iowa, Nebraska, Tennessee, Wisconsin and New Mexico.

    I've been to a bunch of states besides those, I think it would be easier to name the ones I haven't been to at all: Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Dakotas, Oklahoma, Alaska and Hawaii. Alaska is on the docket for next year, and I'm stoked.

I'm home safe n' sound, we got screw'd on the trip..... supposed to go to Phuket & koh fi fi for surfing n' scuba, and end in Bali Indonesia. But had to fly home in 5 days after my wounds were stable - Hell of a story ! )

    So many. Currently at the top of my list are Portugal and Argentina. Next international trip will probably be to El Salvador though, which we've been to already and love but haven't gotten to take the kiddo to yet.

    Washington
    Oregon
    California
    Hawaii
    Nevada
    Arizona
    Texas
    Idaho
    Montana
    Wyoming
    Colorado
    North Dakota

    It's true. So many regional differences as you travel around, and so many big cities (Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio, Austin). Let's say you like visiting Presidential Libraries (we do). You can visit three in Texas (LBJ, both Bushes). We visited all 3 when we lived there (plus the Clinton library in Arkansas), but not on the same trip.

    A while back I bought a sheet of stamps (Greetings from America) that included a stamp from each state. My goal was to re-visit each state and send a post card to my grand niece&nephew. We had 2 left before COVID hit (MT and AK).

    DH has been to 49 plus DC--never visited AK and he would really like to go. (sigh!) Maybe next year...
    That is simply amazing and phenomenal!

    Ha true. I've been to all of the ones you listed. Missing CT, ME, MA, NH, RI and VT - the WAAAAY northeast.

    I don't think I'll hit 50 by 50, but maybe 50 by 60? After retirement DH and I are avid road trippers. I'd like to road trip without the kids maybe and just hang and chill and see stuff. Go for a month at a time.
