    Just wondering how many of you have had the opportunity to travel all around your country?

    There are so many places I haven't seen yet, and when I look at all the pictures that have been posted... it really makes me want to just pack up and go explore!

    Me too. Seems I've only been on the coasts mostly. There are so many places I'd like to go. The only time I've been more central has been going to conventions when my husband worked at Borden Foods. We went to Texas once but I hardly remember it, and Las Vegas. Favorite non- coastal city is New Orleans. Been there many times.

    I am missing the east from the Carolinas on up still.

    We spent a year in our RV cruising around the country between moving from CA to KY.

    No, but I would love to. I have been to California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee,Kentucky, Missouri, illinois and I've been on the border of North Carolina. I don't travel very well these days so we haven't been anywhere in a while.

    I hadn't seen all that much of the UK before I left, and I haven't seen as much of Ireland as I would like either.

    my father used to say that an American should see his/her own country before going elsewhere. Summer vacations were often spent traveling throughout the US. So, I've been to almost 40 states, missing many in the deep south and midwest. And Alaska and Hawaii. I hope to remedy the Alaska visit soon! My daughter has travelled more abroad than here, but she's visited probably 11 of our 50. Now, she lives in Madrid!

    There are parts of the US that I really want to see & some parts that I don't Not listing either so I don't insult anyone here.

    I would love to find a "passport" that I can stamp so I will have a travel memory.

    I have been fortunate and have been to quite a few states. I love to travel - wish I had the money to do more. I have not been to the New England states and very little in the south east or the south central. Looking forward to seeing more of this great country!

    I've been to all states except Hawaii. We have a small RV and over the years have traveled quite a lot. My hubby loves to drive everywhere. And he is more than willing to find me quilt shops and I have walked thru many motorcycle shops with him! It works except I wish we had a bigger RV so I could take more sewing. As it is I take handwork mostly.

    I've been to PA, NJ, NY, NC, KY, extensively. I've also spent bits of time in OH, Arizona, SC, CT, Colorado, Virginia, MD. That doesn't count any states I've just driven through.

    I haven't traveled much here or abroad, but have more of a desire to see USA than other places because it's so big, and there's so much diversity of places here. I prefer to visit and explore more "regular" towns as opposed to tourist destinations.

    We travel on our Goldwing motorcycle each summer. We have been in all but 8 of the lower 48 and have looped around the Great Lakes into Canada on it.

    I had somebody tell me that it didn't count for being in a state if you hadn't spent the night there - like if you just drove through it 'didn't count'...
    With that said, my list is:
    Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Wash. DC, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois... and Oklahoma - LOL - we stopped the car and walked around just so we could say we'd been there ....

    On my wish list... to see the desert in bloom, and to see the Rockies, and to see a tall-grass prairie.

    (sigh & dream)

    I have seem a lot of the USA, from Nova Scotia, Canada all the way down to FLorida. Then as far west as El Paso Tx. and up to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Yes we have traveled quite a bit but have missed most of the western and north western states. Probably never will get there as DH is not well enough to travel. But no complaints Life has been good

    I have lived in New Mexico, Texas, Oregon, Arizona, Nebraska, Wyoming, Oklahoma, New York, and Florida(both coasts). In addition I have spent time doing college classes(geology) or vacationing in North and South Dakota, Colorado, California, Montana, Illinois, South Carolina, Alabama, Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee plus revisiting states I lived in. Now that I'm older-and have less money for traveling- I don't go as much but enjoyed very much seeing so many different places.
