Little known OCB fact, I have never left the country...this winter I was in Baudette, MN withing a stones throw of Canuckia, didn't make it across the bridge.

Yeah, I've never been outside of the country either.  Never.  Some day though the wife and I will probably do a cruise somewhere, and I'd like to go to Europe for a couple weeks.

Also Chris, if you ever have 3 weeks of vacation I cannot tell you enough how awesome it is to drive to California and back (the back part kind of sucks) but it is an awesome trip.

That is definitely something I will want to do sometime in my lifetime.  I bet that trip coming back would really suck.

I guess it depends on how you go, we went out through Montana (on 90 where you could catch Yellowstone and North Cali) and back through Nebraska (on 80)...

Bad part is either way leaves a lot of grain fields to look at in North Dakota or Nebraska

You get the added benifit of most of Iowa and Western IL :)

 Arizona (family)
 California
 Colorado
 Delaware
 Flordia
 Georgia
 Idaho (family)
 Illinois

Update from my weekend trip to Vegas:

New Jersey
Pennsylvania
New York
Connecticut
Massachusetts
Rhode Island
Vermont
New Hampshire
Maine
Delaware
Virginia
Maryland
Florida
Michigan
Hawaii
Nevada
Arizona (ok, it was only the Hoover Dam side, but it still counts right?)

Total: 17

States I've either driven through or had a layover in an airport:
West Virginia
North Carolina
South Carolina
Georgia
Illinois
California

Total: 6

Almost half (23).  I would like to move California from the layover category to the actually did something category.
