Did you keep a record of every state you've been to or something?  I have no idea exactly what states I've been to, but I'll give it a shot.

Illinois
Iowa
Wisconsin
Indiana
California
Nevada
Arizona
Oregon
Washington, D.C.
Florida
Georgia
Tennessee
West Virginia
Virginia
Kentucky
North Carolina
South Carolina
Michigan
New York

Looks like 19 total states.  One of these days my wife and I are going to drive to California, and just take a our time going through the country.

Sorta, I just went to Georgia for the first time, got me to thinking of many of the 50 I had been too

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  :-*

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

States I actually done something in:
New Jersey
Pennsylvania
New York
Connecticut
Massachusetts
Rhode Island
Vermont
New Hampshire
Maine
Delaware
Virginia
Maryland
Florida
Michigan
Hawaii

Total: 15

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

Total: 6

So, in total I've been to 21 states, damn not even half.  Most likely the next one to visit not on my list would be Nevada (Las Vegas)

And the only time I've been out of the country:  Montreal, twice.  Don't remember much of either time though.  Way too much drinking.

All but:

Alaska
Hawaii
Minnesota
Wisconsin
North Dakota
Nebraska
Iowa
Rhode Island
Delaware

I will admit that Utah, I've only "been to" by stepping on the Four Corners thing, but technically, it counts.  :)

Not much for this Canuckian.

California, Idaho, Montana & Neveda.

Drove from Vegas to L.A. on my 4 day trip. Checked out Edwards Air Force Base then off to the Universal Studios tour.
I never saw the Hollywood sign or the Pacific Ocean. Ran out of time & had to head back to a show in Vegas. We did get to see Grauman's Chinese Theatre with some well known Star Wars footprints.  ;)

Idaho & Montana was a 7 day bike trip that we put together from work.

Dale,
part of it is related to my dad's job (insurance salesman) and my job.  I get to go to conferences in many places in the US.  Wisconsin was the most recent.  This October I'll be in Ohio and plan on drifting down to Louisville, home of my favorite college basketball team.  

My dad sold life insurance and one of the perks of his job was various conferences based on sales performance.  Most of those Caribbean spots and lots of the US destinations are attributable to family travel.  Minnesota and North Dakota relate mostly to drinking ;).  The Western States are primarily a result of skiing.  

I'd really like to see much more of the Eastern US but at this point don't have much reason to go out that way.  

Aus and points in that direction are due to a little 6 month vacation.  

Then there's the age advantage ;)

All my European trips have been complements of the Canadian Air Force when my dad was in service. If they have an empty seat, your on your way.  ;)
