I’ve been to Texas many times if you count airport layovers in Dallas and Houston, but I don’t play like that. However, I this did make me realize that I have not set a concrete definition of what it means to visit a state. Feedback welcome.
For those counting, the 12 I’m missing are, NM, TX, OK, LA, MS, AL, GA, SC, NC, DE, MD, and RI.
Just how I should go about knocking off the last 12 is yet to be determined. Maybe a bike tour from New Orleans to Hilton Head to take out the Southeast? Hiking trip in Taos? A visit to the Crawford Ranch? What are the must-see things in my unseen states?
