I could probably do okay, but it certainly wouldn't be even close to perfect. I know where each state goes, and I know the capitols, but there's no way I'd get all the shapes right. I do illustrations part-time, but that wouldn't help me to get the shapes right!
I could do it reasonably accurately but my hand is not the steadiest so you might end up with even rockier coastlines !
We had to do "blind" mapping of continents, countries, main rivers, capitals etc... at school but as Cpg mentioned since the breakway ex Soviet Republics I might need a refresher course on exact new boundaries... Also I have always had an issue for some reason with Alaskan boundaries , to me they sort of blur in with the Yukon and NorthWest Territories and my mapping would be way off I think.
I can draw it almost exactly, but I always mess up on west virginia, since I usually end up drawing it last for some reason.
I find it amusing when I meet people that think Omaha is a state, or people that live in St. Paul and think Minneapolis is the state capitol.
