Where I've Been..

Found the link to this on PJ Maximum, The Uber-Conservatives blog. I often mention I lived in a lot of states. To get to most of them I've driven, so I've also seen a lot of states. (Note: I didn't drive to Alaska or Hawaii).

In fact, I don't have many left. I don't count Michigan because the only time I've been there is to stop in the airport at Detroit. I have tacky refrigerator magnets from many of them, because one can never have too many ugly magnets on the fridge.

That is one impressive map! Does your work require you travel?

I refuse to visit outside the U.S. until my map looks lots like yours (unless by some odd chance of fate I score a free trip to Ireland). *g*

The Navy did require a lot of travel, which is how I got to bunches of those states. Others I hit with my parents when I was a kid.

Considering I'm in Virginia I should probably make a point of getting to the Carolinas before I move back to Illinois.

You've never been to North Corolina?! I find that interesting since this isn't the first time you've been here. I mean, it's not like we're on the southern border, like where I grew up, but it's only like a three-hour drive down I-95. Of course, that's only to cross into NC, and Roanoke Rapids doesn't have much to it.

The states I haven't been to are Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, North/South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon , Alaska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.

I just noticed you claim you havn't been to Deleware, either. Very odd, since most people drive through Delaware while traveling on I-95 between Maryland and New Jersey.

Now we need one of these for the number of countries we've visited.

Never had a reason to go to either of the Carolinas, so I haven't.

As for Delaware, I've never driven from here to New Jersey. I keep lucking out and not having to make that trip :)

As for countries, it's a long list.

I had to try it after seeing yours. Mine's not nearly as impressive as your though.

I posted mine on my blog...

Mine wouldn't be nearly as impressive either. But what I thought was funny when I looked at your map is that you have been every where I haven't and I've been every where you haven't.

The map would overlap some - but basically would be exactly the opposite of yours.

I just thought that was funny. Probably funnier in my head than when I typed it, now that I think about it! oh well


Thanks for coming over to my blog :)

Hey Beth, maybe we should get together, then we can say we've been everywhere :)

You only need enough magnets to hold the pizza coupons. Anymore are to many.

Shoprat, Domino's delivers my pizza coupons WITH a magnet...but I still need more, just in case.

I'll send ya some magnets, dad. Cool ones, they have the store's website on it! Lol. But, don't ask me to deliver a pizza out there. You can't afford the Delivery charge or the tip.

I used to have the refridgerator magnets too - when my kids were little. They wanted to buy one every time we were in a different state.

They somehow disappeared during a move. Can't imagine how that happened!

Chi-Town... I can afford the delivery charge, and it's not like I tip the pizza guy anyway :)

Beth- did they end up in the "mystery box" during the move :)
