only 19 states left to go


So as you may know, I do a fair bit of traveling.

There are a couple of things I try and do to keep it from being tedious.

One is I try and meet local voice talents in whatever city I am going to. Sometimes when I call and introduce myself, I end up making a new friend and sometimes a new VO thinks I’m some sort of crazy stalker — ‘who just calls strangers out of the blue like that?’

The OTHER thing I do is keep track of the states I have visited. Now my rule is that to count as a visit, I have to have stayed overnight in the state. A drive through does NOT count.

Following my stay in Overland Park, Kansas (my 31st state) I now have only 19 states left before I will have stayed in all 50 states.

I have officially visited these states in my life:

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

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

32. Alabama
33. Alaska
34. Delaware
35. Hawaii
36. Idaho
37. Indiana
38. Kentucky
39. Maryland
40. Mississippi
41. Montana
42. New Hampshire
43. New Mexico
44. North Dakota
45. Oklahoma
46. Oregon
47. Rhode Island
48. Tennessee
49. Vermont
50. Wyoming

It’s good to have goals 🙂

P.S. I just remembered I was in Baltimore for my niece’s college graduation….18 more to go!
