I've been to every state except for Alaska. I plan to go there too someday...maybe after retirement.

Cool I know someone who has been to every state

My aunt has been to every state in the contiguous US.

Won't fly--so has never visited Hawaii.

She is quite the 'Explorer'--in her 80's now. Drove to most of the states from GA by herself. What tales she tells. She ran a trucking company. Does not suffer fools gladly--wherever she is. LOL.

One of those Southern 'Rednecks' and she doesn't care who doesn't like that.

'The Greatest Generation'--sure will miss them when they are gone.

I think I have been to between 35 and 40. We used to tske two long vacations a year growing up and my parents drove everywhere. Now that I'm 'grown up' I'm trying to hit every island in the Caribbean.

I have been to all 50 states plus DC. Also been to 6 Canadian provinces and every country in the Western Hemisphere except the Caribbean island countries (cuba, haiti, dominican rep, etc).
How did that happen? In the 1960s when I was a kid, my parents took us on several long trips by car all around the country. My dad was a road warrior who loved to explore everywhere. We drove around in a great big 1956 Chrysler New Yorker or Desoto Firedome (whichever of the two was in running condition for a long trip).
I have explored a lot of places over the last 30 years, many job related trips. Lived in California most of my life, but also lived and or worked in Chile, Germany, Russia, NJ, AL, GA. In the late 1970s after I was out of the Army, drove from California down the Pacific Coast to the southern tip of South America (Ushuaia, Argentina), and then back up the Atlantic side to Bahia, Brasil. Adventure of a lifetime.

I guess my dad is a road warrior too. He can map his way across the country by places to eat.

I've been to all the states except Hawaii and the deep Southern states. Except Georgia, since I've transfered at Hartsfield, of course

What stories you must have. You need to start a thread and share--a guy on another forum had a 'Campfire' thread and we roasted cyber marshmallows and swapped tales.

Thinking of 'Seeing the USA--in your Chevrolet' as the song went--have you read any of Bill Bryson's books. His account of his tour of the US was hilarious. (--he's a Brit--IIRC--maybe a transplanted US citizen--lives across the pond.)

I love to read travelogues. Starting one of Anthony Bourdain's books--searched the globe for great food-- was glad to get home and have a cheeseburger. :-)

ETA: Bill Bryson--'I'm A Stranger Here Myself' --very funny account of his tour of the US
