I’ve Been to 24 States, and 3 Countries

A long while back, this was one of the many “Notes” going around to put on facebook. Since I have now been to another state, and haven’t updated it in a while, I thought I’d put it here, just for fun. I also put a few notes in parenthesis, just to show either what I was doing there, or what some highlights were.

“Put an X by the states you have been to. The average is 8; how do you match up? Incidentally, the rule for “visiting” is: road-tripping through it counts, especially if you stopped to use the bathroom. Flying over doesn’t, and neither does only seeing the interior of the airport between flights. (Everyone knows the airport isn’t a proper place at all.)

Should you choose to play, here’s what you do:
Copy my note. Click on “notes” under tabs on your profile page. Select “write a new note” in the top right corner. Paste the copy in the body of the note. Delete my Xs and add your own. Change the number at the top, and add your title. Once you’ve saved, don’t forget to tag friends (including me) on the right. Tag the same # of people as the # of states you’ve been to. Just for fun, put an O beside the states where you have lived.

** My addition: I decided to try to write the highlight of each place that I can remember… you don’t have to do this, I just like doing stuff like that!

    Oh, cool! This is a good idea for a blog post. (I need some inspiration right now.) My all-time favorite state is Montana. They call it Big Sky Country for a reason.
