39 down, 11 to go. One may wonder how I managed to visit a state since posting my states visited list yesterday, especially considering that I was at Il Vesco Vino and The Happy Gnome last night. The trick was to open my email this morning and read the following email:
You’ve been to Maryland. We were there when we went to DC and Gettysburg.
Thanks, Mom. I’m glad someone in the family has a memory. Now that my memory has been refreshed, I do, in fact, remember visiting Maryland. We passed through Chevy Chase where there were more Mercedes, BMW’s, and Jaguars than we had seen over the many miles traveled from St. Paul, MN in the family truckster.
I remember pondering in the back seat of our family truckster, “Chevy Chase – the actor – must be really rich for such a wealthy town to be named after him.” Fletch was an awesome movie, so this seemed plausible. To this day, I figure that’s the case, but Wikipedia has their own version of the truth.
So, does anyone remember being in any of the remaining 11 states on my list? Here they are:
NM, TX, OK, LA, MS, AL, GA, SC, NC, DE,
MD, and RI.
