    I've been to every state on the eastern seaboard from Maine to Florida, plus California, Arizona, and Washington. The flights over the midwest and stops in various airports don't count.

    Someday I'd like to see more of the U.S. When I was a teenager, I had dreams of "vagabonding" across the country. I'd also like to see more of Canada than Nova Scotia (recent) and Montreal (Expo '67).

    Been to a bunch of states, but haven't seen nearly enough of them. I've also been through Canada, though again, not nearly enough of it.

    I've managed to hit most of the eastern states(MN WI MI IL IA MO TN KY OH WV VA NC NY PA MD RI), and western(NB SD ND WY MT CO UT WA OR NM KS OK TX AR), but none of the south. Furthest south I've been is Dallas(don't wanna go back again). Not really sure if I WANT to go to the south either(sorry southies).

    I am not sure. I don't track it. I have not been to New Mexico. And I would think there are probably a few other conus states missing, up aroung The Great Lakes. Never been to Hawaii or Alaska.

    We have driven across this country twice -- once from Washington state to Georgia and, 4 months later, from Georgia to California. We traveled 5500 miles that year in order to move about 1200 or so. And I have been up and down the East Coast, from Florida to Maine. Lived in Kansas for a time and drove to Georgia repeatedly, taking a different route several times. There was a time I could drive from Georgia to Kansas without a map. lol.

    Had to go with other, since I've visited 28 states, mostly the South and the West, the Nation's Capital and three Canadian provinces.

    So, martini, I'm curious....how did you get through most of the Midwest and not go through Indiana? I'm impressed, that takes some serious road-mapping.

    Doh! figgered I'd miss one. There's a reason Lisa and I named it Indianoplace. Wasn't all that memorable . Actually, southern Indiana was really pretty(forested, rolly hills, limestone escarpements), the rest of it though...boooorrring!

    Hey, it ain't all bad. We do have a pretty top-notch art museum, among other things. And yeah, southern Indiana is pretty. They got all the good topography.

    It's easier to list the states where I haven't visited.

    Montana
    North Dakota
    South Dakota
    Iowa
    Minnesota
    Wisconsin
    Alaska
    Hawaii
    Connecticut
    Rhode Island
    Vermont
    New Hampshire
    Maine
    Idaho

    That makes 36 visited states, and the District of Columbia. I'll be adding Iowa tomorrow when I drive through there. If I get this job in Portland, I can pick a route that will cover all the Northern Great Plains and Rocky Mountain states, leaving just Alaska, Hawaii and parts of New England.

    Providence is a TV show, and a city in Rhode Island.

    It's province, eh?

    I've also visited most of the Benalux countries Scandinavia.

    I've got 25 states by my count. I've missed NV, ID, MT, WY, UT, NM, ND, SD, NB, OK, IA, MN, MI, WI, IN, PA, DE, NJ, CT, RI, MA, NH, VT, ME, HI. Halfway there! As you can see, I've been all over the place. Southeast is pretty much covered, as is the lower east coast. Got the west coast down too. Still missing are most of the midwestern states, northern states, and new england. (I'm stuck in a southern frame of mind)

    I've been to British Columbia, but I didn't think on a bus for 30 min counted, so i didn't vote for it.

    I've visited all provinces in Canada except for Newfoundland. Haven't been to any of the Territories.

    As far as US states, not many: Oregon, California, Washington, Montana, Maine (maybe one other New England state, but I'm not sure)
