Of the X states you have been in, in how many of them were you a social guest in a resident's private living quarters. Even if just a step in the door, not for conducting business.

I don't have any agenda, just wondering. I'm not sociable, rarely know neighbors. hang with few friends. My ratio is about half.

Illinois: grew up here so obviously a lot of friends' houses

Indiana: extended family on dad's side all lived here, so went to many of their houses

Maryland: have faint memories of visiting one of my dad's old coworkers who had moved to Baltimore, at the age of 4-5. Remember pressing all the buttons on the elevator

New York: mom's parents lived on Long Island before they passed away (never met the rest of her family, she was not close to them)

Ohio: college, so a couple house parties (wasn't really into that stuff but tried a couple) and friends' dorms

Oklahoma: went on road trip to New Mexico during college, met up with online friend in OKC on the way back

Virginia: did a coding bootcamp that had company housing, went to a friend's room there once if that counts

Nevada: was there for a year, made some friends, went inside a couple of their places

Washington: was there for 3 years, went inside many friends' places

Oregon: ...have visited a number of friends in Portland, but I think the only person I've actually been inside the apartment of was someone I knew in Eugene a few years ago, who was a UO student at the time. Also briefly stepped inside a guy's house in Portland last year, picking up a folding bike off of Craigslist (yes, I drove 3 hours in my car to pick up a bike lol. Worth it).

California: have been here a few weeks, have been inside one group house so far. Also have an old HS friend whose family moved to the Bay Area after he graduated, I've visited his place here on a previous visit. Then when I was 13, we visited a (late) family friend in Sonoma

I've visited people's homes in Pennsylvania (Philadelphia), New Hampshire (forget the town . . . we were at a shoe making class with my father and stayed at the instructor's house), New York (various), New Jersey (various), Connecticut (New Haven I want to say), Maryland (various), Virginia (VA Beach), Michigan (Petoskey), North Carolina (Rocky Mount and Charlotte), Louisiana (New Orleans), Mississippi (some small town right outside of Jackson), Florida (Pensacola), and Hawaii (all throughout the island of Oahu). But I've vacationed and stayed in hotels in many more states.
