Cool! Someone did it in google maps!

create your own visited states map

I need to go visit those other 1011 states sooner or later.

Edit: And as pointed out by iridium this meme is counting DC as a “state.” Which it is not.

It’s the only “posession” I’ve visited. The other six I need to visit too. (American Samoa, Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, Marianas Island, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.)

I guess technically some of those places are “Soverign states in association with the US” .. but still.

    I count eleven?

    Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, North Dakota, Arkensas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Hawaii and Alaska?

    Arkansas. Sheesh. Bad wolf.

    Oh. Silly me. The meme reports how many “states” you entered and counted DC as a state. I just subtracted the 40 it parroted to me from 50.

    So the corrected statement should be: I need to visit the other 11 states and 6 posessions.

    Yes and no. The vast majority of the middle US I visited as a kid on two long and quite enjoyable cross-country family trips.

    It helps a lot that my father was in the military and we moved a few times.

  6. how did we both miss New Mexico???

    I’m considering just taking some quick flights this year to cover the states I’ve not visited…(grin)…

    I suppose we could all meet there for coffee. 🙂

    You’ve never been to Arkansas? I wish I had known that! I would have invited you down to sample our lovely trees, tobaccy and…actually very cool national parks. Devil’s Den is pretty awesome, and the Eureka Springs/Hot Springs area has a lot of cool history that few know about. If you know a person or two still here after the great migration, have them show you around!

    I could theoretically claim 48 but that depends on what counts as visiting a state. Driving across a corner of the state without stopping? Changing planes at the airport?
