only 13 states left now!!!!


My challenge to stay over night in all 50 states continues!

Remember, the rule is you cannot just drive through the state, you have to stay over night.

Last night I stayed in North Dakota (FARGO!) for the first time overnight!

So here’s the updated count of the states I have officially visited in my life:

1. Arizona
2. Arkansas
3. California
4. Colorado
5. Connecticut
6. Florida
7. Georgia
8. Illinois
9. Indiana
10. Iowa
11. Kansas
12. Kentucky
13. Louisiana
14. Maine
15. Massachusetts
16. Maryland
17. Michigan
18. Minnesota
19. Missouri
20. Nebraska
21. Nevada
22. New Jersey
23. New York
24. North Carolina
25. North Dakota!!!
26. Ohio
27. Pennsylvania
28. South Carolina
29. South Dakota
30. Tennessee
31. Texas
32. Utah
33. Vermont
34. Virginia
35. Washington
36. West Virginia
37. Wisconsin

Thus, I am left with only these 14 American states still to visit:

38. Alabama
39. Alaska
40. Delaware
41. Hawaii
42. Idaho
43. Mississippi
44. Montana
45. New Hampshire
46. New Mexico
47. Oklahoma
48. Oregon
49. Rhode Island
50. Wyoming

If you’re going to travel, you might as well make it fun!

  1. Hi Peter:

    It’s a great goal.

    My Dad, who died on December 9th, had the same idea. He hit Alaska and Hawaii when he was serving in the Army.

    Over the years I think he made every state but one: Oregon. He hoped to do it last year after my Mom died, but ill health made it impossible for him. (I know he really liked the Black Hills.)

    Good luck with it.

    I hope you do it.

    Kind Regards,

  2. Thanks Mike. I very sorry to hear about the passing of your Dad. I know that pain.

    When I hit Oregon, I will think of your Dad.

    Best always,

  3. […] even kept a running log of how many states I have stayed over night in all my life and have ONLY 13 more states to go before I will have stayed over night in every state in the […]
