Addie, I've had my share of senior moments.

I've been to quite a few, but I had to get a list of them all to count them up. I grabbed a couple of images from Google and put them together, in case anyone finds it useful. I've visited 23 states and Washington, DC. I believe as a child, I probably visited Kentucky, West Virginia and Tennessee during car trips from Michigan to Florida, but I don't really remember, so I didn't count those.

I like living in Virginia, except for the heat and humidity. But the mild winters and long growing seasons are great. There's a variety of scenery, from the mountains to the foothills to the beach, lots of history and outdoor activities.

I've been to 42 states and 4 continents (I spent 13 years of my life traveling) and next month we're taking a trip to Washington and Oregon, so I'll be adding 2 more states to the list.

I never could be bothered to count. Between being in the military and being a migrant aerospace worker, I know I've been to a whole bunch. Now i am going to have to pull up a map of the U.S. and start counting.

Other than the state of confusion, I've only been to 7 states. California, Oregon, Washington State, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

On quick glance, about 30 states including 4 Hawaiian isles (which is just one state). 5 Canadian provinces.
