31 . . .better than I thought initially.  Knocked out a lot of these on a college road trip from Chattanooga, TN to Billings, MT.  Minnesota may be a cheat since I've really only ever stopped through at the airport.  But I'm counting it.

I'll add Wisconsin this month with a business trip to Milwaukee.

That will leave:

A good tour of New England and the Southwest and I'd be pretty caught up.
