Been to all of them, but I think I only drove through Kentucky.

I've lived in CO all my life and I've never been to Wyoming. I really don't see a reason to head up there, besides to maybe see Yellowstone one day.

Colorado resident here. Have never been to Oklahoma, which has a small border with CO. I've been to all the neighboring states of my home state Pennsylvania, plus Canada, which has a border with PA in Lake Erie. Lived in Illinois for 7 years, been to all the border states.

Now, on to the "3-aways". Here, we get NC, TN, MO, IL, WI, NH, RI, and MN (technically; water border only with Michigan). I have been to all these except Missouri and Minnesota.

As far as the two-aways, just got Nevada in this past December, have been to Montana, South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Texas. Haven't been to Arkansas, Louisiana or Mexico.

Have been to all PA's two-aways; for IL, have been to Canada, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Kansas, Nebraska and Minnesota. Again, not Arkansas.

For me, on the two-away list:

CA: I haven't been to Baja California Sur or Sonora.

CO: I haven't been to Iowa, Arkansas, or Chihuahua.

WA: I haven't been to Alaska, Yukon, or Northwest Territories.

Been to all the rest though.
