Well, you're missing out on a very integral, historical, and arguably the most culturally-astute part of the U.S. Hop on the next plane that you can.

Well, I haven't even seen half the states yet, but I am sort of a climatology/geography buff so I've seen a lot of pics and read a lot of things about most states in the Union. I guess I know the least about the northeastern states.

But from reading this thread, it looks like a lot of you need to come visit me. We could all meet in Deadwood in Aug.

Oh, I know. I've been all over the south, the west, west coast, and the Northwest. But for some reason I've never been to the Midwest (Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, N. and S. Dakotas, and etc.). And I've never been past Virginia, to go Northeast (Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, and etc.). I just never had a reason to go to these places.

But I'll try sometime in my life, in the future. Who knows?

I have been everywhere on the west coast and to a great deal of the south, I would have to say the Dakotas.

Rhode Island is a state that gets no attention. Some states like New Mexico are politically important swing states and get notice at least every presidential election. Other states like Nebraska, Kansas, Indiana, Kentucky, etc., have college sports teams that are covered on ESPN. States like Alaska and Maine have geographic beauty. Arkansas has big business like Wal-Mart, and the Clintons. Rhode Island has to be the most overlooked state.

We have been across the United States going the most Southern route. Came back I-40 and have been to Denver on I-70. I would really like to spend a couple of years doing a Route 66 type thing (but not working just visiting) on the Interstates we have not been on yet. I think there is something special in every state we have visited, but there are some states we just have not seen yet. Actually, we could do I-40 without a map, although I wouldn't. We even have favorite places for candy, night stays, and food on I-40. We need to take another route next time.

Several people have mentioned Arkansas as a place unknown to them. We went to Fairfield Bay and just really enjoyed the area. Herber Springs was another town nearby. The mountains there were very much like the North Carolina mountains. The people there were really friendly and just good down home folks.
