49 states and Guam. I haven't been to Alaska. A girl friend and I used to get in the car and drive until half our money was gone and then back home. Made for some fun times.

I miscounted. I've done 13. Washington, Oregon, Montana, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Hawaii, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Minnesota, California and Florida. Ken has done nearly all except Alaska and one or two others.

Twenty, give or take. Plus three of Canada's eastern provinces and a couple of places in Mexico. Just to cover the major components of North America.

I didn't read all the replies but I will later on tonight since I have to stay up until wee hours of the morning so I can work the next 3 nights but.....

I've been in 29 states.

The year I turned 29 my boyfriend and I did what we dubbed the national lampoon vacation. We started out in Reading Pa and did a whole loop around the states in 10 or 12 days. I really had a blast. We couldn't stay long at the places we visited but I sure got a good taste of America that year.

We saw the badlands, needle's eye national park, yellow stone, devil's tower, Yosemite park, the salt lake, Mount Rushmore, reno, vegas, carson city, Hoover dam to name a few sites. I had a blast.

We rented a T-bird and either pitched a tent or rented a room out a few times.

Beats me. I never counted, nor saw a reason to.
I do know someone that is running a marathon in every state. That seems like a nice goal.

Me too! They wouldn't so happen to be from Ohio, would they? Not like it's just Ohioans that are nicely nuts like that...

OHIO!

The Buckeye State. Birthplace of many: entertainers Bob Hope, Fred Willard, Paul Neuman *swoon* and more; space and science includes Thomas Edison, Neil Armstrong, John Glenn; a ton of presidents (heck, Taft was 350# all on his own); plenty of writers...and me. It's amazing how many comics have come out of there - then again, I guess you have to have a sense of humor when pundits call you "the mistake on the lake".
