Can we get a roundup of your missed flights list? Could be a fun thread actually.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I also want to see a roundup of cars and planes he's ridden in, from smallest to largest pitch.

Interesting idea, done.

ALOL. Believe it or not, the roomiest car I've driven was a Mini Cooper. If you move the seat all the way back there's a surprising amount of room in the front.

FTFY. I'm assuming your head was literally "in the clouds" :)

Yes, but even with the roof closed it was great.

Nahh! You should try the cozy coop. As far out as you'll stretch your legs the roof height will adjust accordingly.

I thought I would manage to round off all 50 this summer. Alas, it looks like it's not meant to be. Iy"h next year. For now I'm stuck at 47:

3 Remaining:
Alaska
Oregon
Washington


This is a disaster, I haven't added a new state in over 2 years  :'(

Meanwhile I figured I'd add a picture of my states...


I kinda followed their color guidelines but with a twist of my own

  • Red is for states where I was basically just yotzei being there, e.g. airport stopover, driving through a small part of the state without really stopping.
  • Amber is for states I've spent a little more time but still didn't do very much, e.g. spent a night, drove through the entire state etc. (some of them e.g. the ones between NY-FL I drove through dozens of times...)
  • Blue is for states I've spent a more time in e.g. I had significant trips there or done quite a bit of touring.
  • Green is for states I've lived in or visited many many times.
I didn't really think this through thoroughly, I'm sure there are states I can upgrade the status of if I bothered to think it over...

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
