I never hear much about New Mexico on the news or anything. And I've never met anyone from New Mexico. I've even met people from Alaska.

On a recent game of "fill in the states", I got lost in the New England ones. I knew New York and Maine, but that was it. The middle part of the country (Wyoming, N. Dakota, S. Dakota, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, etc.) seem almost unreal to me. I need to get out more, obviously.

A few people!!?? Arizona has a bunch of people and Nevada is always crowded with people. You need to get down here soon and see for yourself.

New Mexico is very pretty, but extremely windy. Don't come with a perfect hairstyle, it'll just get messed up. I guess that's why everyone has long hair there.

Wow!! You'll love it. It's a little dry, so bring some moisturizer and sunscreen (you'll get burned if you aren't tanned already). It's very pretty and scenic. I've live in Arizona for close to 7 years now and I'm so tanned!! I've never had a tan in my life til I moved here.

You like it...Try it...California has the beaches, so if you want to go to the beach you go there. We have just lakes here, but they are awesome and in Lake Havasu you can go topless if you'd like (if you're a woman, that is). String and thong bikinis are the way to go here. It's fun in the southwest. ing

I have been to 46 of the 48 contintental United States. I have not been to New Hampshire or Maine. I really want to see these 2 states (especially Maine). A lot of folks have never seen or have a desire to see the Dakotas. They don't know what they are missing. The Black Hills and Badlands are awesome beauty and South Dakotans are the friendliest people you might ever encounter.

The Dakotas are a mystery to me. When I think of the Dakotas I think of the movie, Fargo. Wide expanses of snow for many months of the year. I will go there one day though as they are about the only two I have not visited. The more states you visit the more you fully realize what a geographically diverse country the U.S. is (and in other ways too!).
