It's all relative in Kentucky.

Exactly ;D.

I always knew he's a redneck, but I didn't think he was that authentic.

At first I was annoyed that they leave out AK if it isn't colored, but now I'm starting to like it better this way. I don't need it sticking in my face "ha ha, you haven't been to Alaska yet" :)

Fellow I work with just hit 50, Oregon was his last (!).  Said that when you hit like 45, you just get the fever and need to finish them.

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...



My dream is to have a map like this with the whole country colored and NY blank

My fever started at 8 in Sea World when there was a large map of the US and I stepped on every state and said "I'm going to all 50!" At that point, I had only been to 8 states. It only took me 14 more years to accomplish my goal :-)
