Phew...you're right about that!

In my youth, I was a show dog handler. I started at age 12 (grew tall very fast!) and by age 20, I had been all over the country numerous times, and well into Canada. Once I finished college, I was taking at least 4 dogs (belonging to other people) to benched "cluster" shows in every major and minor city I'd never heard of. I can't remember them all. I wouldn't want to remember them all! I disliked a lot of them. Thankfully, I spent most of my time at the kennel club venue!

Every US city with a population greater than 150K and most of the cities from 100K to 150K.

Look up the lyrics to Johnny Cash "I've Been Everywhere " . Pretty much that is where I have been in the US including the first one Winnemucca.ETA I have never been to Alaska.

I often wonder if these "name all cities/countries/states you have been to" threads are an internet form of masturbation. Relevant only to the self-poster. I guess I am cynical, but does anyone really care/read what the other posters document as the cities they've driven through?
It's really more of a dick measuring contest than masturbation.

I traveled for work a lot so I don't remember them all (and some of them were definitely not memorable anyway); however, I will say that one I remember was Truth or Consequences, NM. Gotta love it!

In 15.5 years of truck driving, I've been to (or at least through) all of them in the lower 48, except the following:
all in OR, ID, MT, VT, ME
all in WA except the Seattle/Tacoma area
all in NH except Nashua

^ Yup, and try finding diesel anywhere near Truth or Consequences at 11:30 pm on a sunday night. My list of agricultural towns would be far longer than major cities, thank goodness.

I used the same list as the person who listed the top 50 MSAs but edited it to apply to me. Other states and noteworthy places that I have been are: Maine, VT, NH, NJ, TN (Chattanooga & Knoxville), SC (Charleston, Columbia, Aiken), GA (Savannah and Augusta), Arkansas, Mississippi, Nebraska (Lincoln), ID (Idaho Falls), Wyoming (Yellowstone and Jackson Hole), Monterrey, CA, El Paso, and of course New Mexico.
