    • Growing up, pre-Internet, we did a lot of states; 16 I believe. As an adult, I added another 13 plus D. C. and three countries (Netherlands, Finland, and Estonia), not counting Minnesota and Michigan as I was only in the airports on layovers. I should do a blog post on the states visited one day. Mapping them is mostly easy for the road trips as I know how we got to the various states even if I don’t remember the exact routes taken. For the small handful of train and plane trains as a child, I don’t recall the layovers or routes so I may miss a couple.

      My most distant trip as a child was from south Mississippi to South Dakota to visit my sister and her husband. He was stationed near Rapid City. Seems to me that hit around the time of the Arab embargo as we had trouble getting enough gas in Denver due to long lines and gas shortages. Once me made it out of Denver, it wasn’t that bad for gas or on the way back from South Dakota as we went through Nebraska.
