Create your own map at World66. They also do world maps…here’s mine.

The World66 site seems to be a travel wiki. Anyone can add content and all content is then available for publishing under a CC license. Very cool.

Vermont and New Hampshire … the Ying and Yang of the states.

I’ve been to all but two as well, Alaska and Hawaii in my case.

Brad, you’re missing the best ones! I’m — not surprisingly — missing a slew there in the middle.

I’ve skipped the states I just made “airport visits” to:

is it just me, or is arizona missing from their list?

here it is.

Apparently they disallow visits to England. Or am I blind?

It takes some serious talent…or a plane…to go to Maine without hitting NH or Vermont.

I’ve been to all except Hawaii. Now I don’t go anywhere, alas. It’s been several weeks since I’ve been out of downtown Chicago.

Jason you’re missing out! You must visit NH sometime. Skip Vermont. Hippy freaks. :)

Vermont is a beautiful state - a must visit… though unless you like cold and REALLY want to go skiing, I’d wait until spring.

MathewJan 30, 2004 at 10:05AM

Spring in Vermont is not a fun time. Come in June! That way you can avoid all the mud and bleakness.

It’ll be a cold day in hell before I recognize Missoura.

my wife and i enjoy arguing about who has visited more states. but the fact we always get hung up on what constitutes a “visit.”

sardonicJan 30, 2004 at 4:34PM

how is it possible that you have visited Maine AND Massachusettes, not to mention Alaska, for god’s sake, but NOT Vermont & New Hampshire?

BenJan 30, 2004 at 11:41PM

Right, at least you could get those remaining two in a short afternoon…
