A travelin' fool: Seeing the U.S. state by state

I have so much to download from my trip out west and am trying to wrap my brain around how to describe everything I saw and experienced. It was phenomenal and different on so many varied levels. From the people I met (oh, LA) to the different environments I experienced, it all deserves its own time in the limelight.

While I take the time to process everything, I need to freak out a bit about the map above. You guys!!! Look how few states I have left to visit! I'm so lucky we were a family that struck out on big road trips (lightbulb...this shit runs in the family). Many of those southeastern states were seen from the back of a wood-paneled station wagon and a white minivan.

So...who wants to take me to Hawaii?


  1. That is a pretty freaking impressive map. Mine would be much more bare. My family took the same vacation every year - traveling across the same 5 states. So with the exception of 3 or 4 more that work has sent me to, my map is pretty monocrome.

    I would love to check Hawaii off of mine. I am supposed to take a road trip with my 22 year old niece next year. Her name is Cayce and we are going to go to Cayce, South Carolina. I told her she should move there and become the mayer. :)

    So, if you haven't filled that state in yet, I will reach out next year :)

    Happy Travels!
