It just came to me... How great would it be to live in all 50 states! What better way to experience the good ole U.S.A.!!!

Has anyone attempted it? I searched google and came up with nothing.

I have an uncle who has visited all 50 states. But I don't know of anyone who has lived in all 50 states.

The 50 state experience is a fairly common subset within the RV community. We're relatively new to RVing and the "50" state gig is something we might do in the future. I previously considered doing a non-RV multi-state renting option early on in our retirement planning but decided that finding short term rentals in all the states was more hassle than it was worth to us. We have dogs which complicates the rental availability situation quite a bit.

I'll pass! Been to 45 states already, and I assure you I would never want to live in most of them! Now European countries, that's a different story...

Yeah, I wouldn't disagree with that view. Europe is really fun, just pricey.

I am up to six states and it is a real pain to MOVE that many times.

Most RVers that I know domicile in one state (often SD or a state with no income tax) and travel continuously.

Good point, the "50" is how they refer to it.

What is dissapointing is to actually LIVE in 50 states, for most places you will see no difference. The suburbs of south bend, Indiana will be exactly like the suburbs of Jackson, MS and Sacramento, CA - 3 bedroom ranch house, McDonalds down the road, Interstate highway 3 miles away, same supermarket chain.

The real magic in seeing what differntiates the US is in the rural areas and outdoors. So RVing to live in 50 states, and then setting up in a rurul or state park - good idea. Actually moving 50 times to live in this McTown and then that McTown? No way. Just the thought of sitting in each states driver's license office to get the license changed makes me shiver in horror.
