I found this link recently on a friends blog. Sara’s been to a few states I haven’t yet been to, but we’re pretty close to each other. There’s no doubt that I want to visit all 50. You know I’m way into knocking out lists like this one and this one. There’s another challenge we’re working on too that I haven’t posted about yet. Seriously, there are too many great things to do here in Texas!

So, here’s the plan. I’m going to Alaska with my friend Joel when he turns 40. I made that commitment to him 5 or 6 years ago and I’m looking forward to that. It’s still 5 of 6 years away. Sara has wanted to see the leaves change in New England. I told her that it’s something old people do (sorry if that offends any old people reading this blog). So, we know we’re going to do that  sometime, but I’m not sure we’ll hit all the New England state in one trip. Perhaps we’ll do a trip centering around Boston and hit a few surrounding states (I’ve never been to Philadelphia and I’d like to spend some time there). Then we can do the fall colors trip on another vacation.

Of the northern mid-western and western states, it might take 2 or 3 trips. I really don’t have any desire to visit North Dakota or Nebraska except for saying I’ve been there. However I’m a little curious about visiting Green Bay (I have no idea why) and I really would like to see Minnesota (although I have flown through the airport twice). There are many national parts and sites I’d like to see in South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, and Utah, so those are definite visits. Idaho, I really want to go see it, but the only thing I think about when I think of Idaho is potatoes. I guess I’ll have to see for myself.

So, that’s where I’ve been and that’s my plan for seeing the rest.
