That reminds me of something that happened to me when I was a kid. – JS

I’ve stated in my About Me page that I was lucky enough to travel a lot as a kid. We would spend weeks in a van exploring America, much like I’m doing now. I thought it would be fun to make a few maps to show my accomplishments thus far and the scope of the trip. I’m only counting states I remember. My parents have told me I’ve been to Wyoming and Missouri but since I don’t remember them, I’m not counting them. I have no reason to doubt my parents…but I do. I’ve seen a picture of little me in front of Mt. Rushmore but since I don’t remember it, I’m not including South Dakota.

This first map is to show the states I know I’ve been to so far. Some I’ve spent weeks in, others I’ve merely driven through. I’d still say it’s a good showing. I’ve obviously done a good bit of traveling east of the Mississippi. You can probably see the route I took last time I drove across the US.

One of my life goals is to actually sleep in all 50 states. According to my memory, this is how I’m doing.

And lastly this is how many states I will have slept in after this trip.
