  • Very cool little doohickey...

    Thanks to scott and daveman via facebook. This should be fun to pass around here.

    It's a bit subjective. For example, I have visited Texas many times, but almost all of those times have been the Dallas-Fort Worth area and/or Houston, never Austin or El Paso or Abeline or El Paso or Amarillo. Same goes with Alaska: I have visited the "cruise area" extensively, along with a few extra trips to Juneau and Anchorage and once to Fairbanks (never left the airport), but I certainly have never seen anything like most of the rest of the state. IOW, you have to make up your own definition for "been there extensively" or whatever it says.

    Still, it make for a pretty cool "bucket list" for me. I definitely want to hit all 50. This is, if nothing else, a big reminder to me that I really want to go to New Mexico (most specifically the balloon festival in Albuquerque) and Montana, both via the great American train trip.







    Where have you been? Where would you like to go?



    Edit: color code:


    red for states where you've not spent much time or seen very much.
    amber for states where you've at least slept and seen some sights.
    blue for states you've spent a lot of time in or seen a fair amount of.
    green for states you've spent a great deal of time in on multiple visits.

    Only a few left for my bucket list of visiting all 50:

      So how do you save and post this thing? It's a .png in my documents at present.
      If it pays, it stays

        You'll have to host it somewhere, like tinypic, or else you can upload it as an attachment, though that doesn't work as well.

          Northeast and northwest still open territory for me.
          We are so fucked.

            Okay, I remembered some places I've been since I uploaded mine to Facebook. Here's the updated map:




            Only one state -- Washington -- probably shouldn't count, since all I've done there is transit SEATAC a couple times. Every other state I've at least driven through.

            I aim with my eye.

            "I do not shoot with my hand; he who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
            I shoot with my mind.

            "I do not kill with my gun; he who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father.
            I kill with my heart.”

              someone sticky the color scheme at the top of the thread?
              Robert Francis O'Rourke, Democrat, White guy, spent ~78 million to defeat, Ted Cruz, Republican immigrant Dark guy …
              and lost …
              But the Republicans are racist.
