I haven't been to most of the states that don't touch an ocean, except VT, CT, PA, OH, and TN. If it's in Central, Mountain, or Alaska/Hawaii Time, it's a mystery to me.

The Dakotas and Kansas sound awfully depressing to me.

North and South Dakota. I've never met anyone from there, so I don't believe they really exist.

Just kidding ... I know someone who knows someone in South Dakota. And I certainly wouldn't mind visiting -- I'm always fascinated when I visit "foreign" places. The first time I drove through central Indiana and Illinois, I couldn't get over how flat the land was! The wonder of it all kept me awake the whole trip.

I've meet people from the Dakotas. They're like Nebraska people, except they don't like McDonalds as much. Dakotas might as well as be the Yukon. I think mid-state Illinois is incredibly weird (plenty of people living here, but it feels like wide open spaces!), so I probably couldn't handle the Dakotas or western Kansas. Yes, I have driven through there before.

When I tell people in Michigan I have been traveling in nether regions of the earth, visiting exotic faraway locations, they want to know if I brought back any postcards from Cleveland. I'm like, well no, I actually didn't get much past Toledo this time.

Cleveland can be quite exotic. Depends which neighborhood you're in.

I'm a suburban person by birth. When I go to Crocker Park 'outdoor lifestyle center' in Westlake, that's exotic enough for me.

I'm fairly convinced that nobody lives in Nebraska. I drove through the southeast corner there once with my family and didn't see a single house from the road. My sister and I joked the entire time that we had either entered the twilight zone, had somehow survived nuclear holocaust, or had been left behind in Christ's rapture, because surely there would be no reason for this much land to exist without any people on it.

All of the Midwest and the Northeast of the U.S. are unknown to me. Never been.

I have never been to the interior west, southwest, or the Dakotas. I just seem to enjoy avoiding those dry arid states with few people. However, I would like to see the Rockies and Yellowstone National Park.

I've always wondered about out West. Texas, California, The Western Frontier etc.

Never been further west than Nashville.
