Came across this article on the CNN web site on Tuesday (5/27/14). It brings up that some people have made it their goal in life to visit all of the 50 states in this country. There is even a web site called the All Fifty Club for those who have done it.

There are some conditions as to what constitutes a visit, for instance if you do a stopover on an airport in a state that you haven't visited before it doesn't count unless you leave the airport for a while.

For me it is not a goal to visit all of the states but I don't mind adding to my list of 5 states which at this point in time are:

  • Hawaii
  • California
  • Texas
  • Nevada
  • Virginia


Too bad I can't count Illinois since it was a stopover on the way to Virginia.

So how many states have you visited? You can list the stopover states if you like but they don't count as the states you visited. I guess for me it is 5 and 1 from my count.
