Some were 24h+ plus. Was an absolutely epic trip.

Different trip.
Whoops. Motorcycle? How do you keep yourself cramped like that? I'm 6 ft. and can't hack more than a few hours.

Here are the two road trips we were discussing - the top one is 5207 miles in 5.5 days, the bottom is last week's 4420 mile RV trip:

ND will probably be the toughest.
We should stop there on the way back from OR

I think it's about time to update my map...

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...



ETA: So for those keeping track at home, that makes 50.

Awesome!
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.

Do I hold the record for active DDFer who has visited the least states? IIRC, I've only been to 9!





My international track record is not much better. IIRC, I've only been to the US, Israel, and Canada. Have never even stopped over in another country!

  • 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.

I can guarantee you there are DDF'ers who have never left Brooklyn.

Using @whYME's color coding:


Very possible I'm missing a couple flight layover states, but I would have thought it would be more. Nu nu

If anyone is interested this is where I made mine:

I also realize I need to adjust my map. I see I have at least one upgrade and one downgrade to make.

Don't tell me you're upgrading NE to green, I thought I had that one to myself on DDF
