I never really thought about how much of my country that I've seen until I saw a link to this online mapping generator over at Poppy Brite's LJ:
visited 42 states (84%)
Evidently I do get around. The only states I haven't visited are Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Ohio, Rhode Island (actually I think I drove through RI at night once but I'm not sure so I didn't check it) Utah and Vermont.
I won't visit Ohio or Utah for philisophical reasons, and the plane trip to Hawaii would be too much for me, but the rest are remote possibilities. I'd love to drive up and see Maine and Vermont someday, maybe in the fall when the leaves are turning colors.
My favorite state is Florida, where I grew up, but I've also loved living in Georgia, Colorado and California. Not so crazy about Texas or Mississippi. Alaska was majestic and astounding but also unbelievably expensive and COLD. One week I spent in Wisconsin was a big surprise; great people, pretty country and lovely weather (all we ever seem to see of Wisconsin on TV is Packer games during blizzards.) If I could go back to one state I've already visited for another vacation it would probably be Washington State; I really liked Seattle.
