I always get this song in my head when I think about the states I have yet to go to. You know, the one where you list all of the states in alphabetic order? "Fifty Nifty United States from thirteen original colonies..."
When I was a kid my parents took us on a lot of vacations around the U.S. and at some point I decided that I wanted to try and go to all 50. It's developed into a race between my dad and I. He's been to a few different ones than I have, and since I've gotten older I've gone to a few he hasn't. We're pretty much even right now though, 5 more to go for each of us. What's left on my list?
3. Rhode Island
5. North Dakota
The top four left on my list are places I want to go, and can see them fitting into a fun vacation... However, what is there to do in North Dakota? Anyone have any ideas?
Here's a map that shows where I've been.
Green: Where I've lived
Blue: Where I've been more than once, or spent a lot of time
Orange: Places I've driven through or not spent a ton of time
Pink: States I still need to visit

I have plans for a 50 States scrapbook, with a page for every state and some memories from each. I should start it now, maybe I'll have it done by the time I get to all 50 states!
