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

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.

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.

Post by: Morgbug on May 9, 2003, 01:15 PM
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.  ;)
My brother down east still get's me the odd free ride's.  ;D
Gotta work on Australia.  8)

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.
Title: Re: How Many States Have You Been To?

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.
Title: Re: How Many States Have You Been To?
Post by: Scott on May 9, 2003, 02:12 PM
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 :)

Geez, have any of you guys been to Canada??  I know it's north and all, but it's not that small really.  Oh and Toronto and BC don't count as part of Canada :P


Montreal twice.  Don't remember much of either trip.   Sole purpose each time was to get trashed legally (something we couldn't do in the States at the time) ;)

Niagara Falls once.  Stayed on the America side and did a day trip to the "other" side.  Much better over there.  Better view, better beer and much more cleanier.

Doing a Vancouver to Whittier (Alaska) cruise, followed by a few days in Denali, and then fly out of Anchorage.  No Fairbanks.

Taking the kids or no kids?

Taking the kids (and going with 70 year old in-laws) which shouldn't be too bad unless people get sea sick.  Kids are old enough to do most things I would want to do anyhow, and there will be more riding than hiking to wear them out.  In a few years they'll be old enough to do some really adventurous vacations, which are more my style.  I'm not a sit on the beach kind of vacationer.  Give me some history to see or some awesome national park to hike through.

Where in Alaska are you going Dave?  I lived near Fairbanks for a little over 3 years when I was stationed at Eielson.  I'd love to go back sometime!

I've been to every state with the exception of North Dakota and Oregon.

Doing a Vancouver to Whittier (Alaska) cruise, followed by a few days in Denali, and then fly out of Anchorage.  No Fairbanks.

I'm stoked for this trip.  Its been towards the top of my ultimate vacations list for quite a awhile.

You may not be able to see Mt McKinley...during the summer it's covered in clouds a lot because it makes its own weather.  Still plenty of beautiful stuff to see!

Native (and proud) Rhode Islander here...  Curious what in the world would warrant a class trip to this state?  LOL!

We came to Boston for 9th Grade History class and made a swing down to the Mansions in RI (Breakers in Newport)...don't remember much beyond that
