How many states have you been to?

When I was a kid I was amazed that my dad had been to all 50 states. I've been working on it ever since and am at 41. Only 9 to go (AL, MS, LA, ND, MT, CO, NV, AK, HI)

My personal criteria for counting a state as "visited" involves at very least getting out of the car somewhere.

[I misspelled "states" in the poll header, so if a Mod could fix that for me, many thanks]

I've been to 47. I have never been to N or S Dakota, or New Mexico.

It's been that way for about the last 15 years, for me.
Maybe Martians could do better than we've done

45. I lack the Dakotas, Wyoming, Montana, and Alaska. I'll try to knock those out by the end of June. I'll hop on Alaska airlines out of Seattle when I have some time off, and try to visit Anchorage, Juneau, and Fairbanks, and hopefully a few cities far north. Other than that I'll have to jumpseat on Great Lakes for some of the others, and Allegiant out of Mesa-Gateway. It helps that I fly for free.

49, I lack just Hawaii. I got to travel extensively on business when I was in my 20's, and that helped tremendously. I also got to stay in different parts of the country for 3-4 weeks at a time, really picking up the nuances of the locality.

California (native state), Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Colorado, Missouri, Virginia, DC, Maryland, New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, so 11. If I take out layovers (Missouri, Colorado, and Nevada), I'm down to 8 plus DC.

One state, Alaska. Grew up 4 hour drive from the border, just never made it to the lower 48.... Living in Australia now so not likely I" will make it to any more anytime soon.

I'd been to all 48 contiguous states when I reached 16 years old. I'm now 42 years old. Alaska and Hawaii may not come for awhile!! As far as getting out of the car, I'm not sure about a few states. North Dakota, Delaware, and Rhode Island. I've been to NYC a few times, (I was born in Hackensack NJ) but I have never been in upstate New York.

Never been to:

North Dakota

Should probably be able to cross Wisconsin off my list in the next few months, maybe Florida as well. I think North Dakota and Hawaii are quite a ways down the road!
