A little Friday fun... pray tell, which states have you visited?  No doubt some of you have your own color maps to upload, but for those who don't -- click here to create one.  No need to sign up for membership -- unless you want the site to remember your map -- for future reference and add on's.

Here's mine -- I really need to visit Idaho.   :D

Very nice -- and August isn't all that far off!!  Please allow me to post a map on your behalf -- it's our most complete one thus far.   :D

Back in the days when airlines give you a free roundtrip ticket for giving up your seat... I got to fly free to Barrow, Alaska -- stopping for a few hours of sightseeing at Anchorage on the outbound and Fairbanks on return -- 3 cities in all.

The 24-hr. summer sun in Barrow was awesome!!  Yes, you need to go to Alaska.   :;):

We have a long history here...

Maybe not, but a 1000 miles from home is about as far as I can pedal.
Oh, and by the way Van, neither does Wyoming and Montana. Like you should talk, eh?   ??? j/k

ETA: There's a big difference between hopping on a plane or driving and sitting on a bus for 1/3 million miles.
