I'm just curious how many states people have seen on their travels, whether living, visiting, on business, or just passing through. I have been to 24 states so far: from North Carolina and Tennessee up and Missouri and Iowa over, excluding Maine and Rhode Island, and I've also been to California and Florida. (I've also been to Ontario, Quebeck, and the German Federal state of Lower Saxony, but that's for a different poll).

However, I am getting a new job as a truck driver next week, and I truly hope that in my hauls I will be able to see all lower 48 states and most if not all Canadian provinces. I can't wait to see the western states as I have never been there before.

47. Everything except:

Alaska
Hawaii
Georgia

Not sure why Georgia hasn't been knocked off, but at least I can just fly to Atlanta for a weekend and have some fun. It would be much more difficult if it were North Dakota or Montana I hadn't been to....

Last year I flew by myself to Long Island, then spent two days driving up through R.I, Conn, Mass, Maine, NH and Vermont to knock all those off my list. It was fun, but literally the only reason I went was to say I'd been there, buy a meal and jump around on the ground. I think I was in Maine for around 10 minutes, haha.
