Been to all except Alaska. Was fortunate to have a job when I was young where I traveled 3 weeks out of every month. All over a 10 year period. Got lots of free time too so I could see pretty much everything I wanted. It was an eye opener for a 20 something young man.

I have lived in 2 States with a vacation home/retirement home in a third.

Lived in 8 different states, lived in 3 of those more than once. They were repeats. While I've driven through many states going coast to coast mainly and outside of port visits up the east coast, I could count on one hand the states I've spent more than 24 hours in while visiting.

I've never lived overseas but have visited 24 different countries. Some were repeat visits.

I've lived in 6 states and 1 Canadian province. To be fair, I've lived in 3 separate regions in Texas that are so far apart it'd be 3 separate states in most of the country.

I've been to 45 states and Puerto Rico but have not visited:
  • Mississippi
  • Alabama
  • Georgia (spent 45 min in ATL but that doesn't count)
  • South Carolina
  • Maine

    I really need to take a road trip through the Southeast.

    1. I have been physically in all 50 US states, DC, Johnston Island, and Puerto Rico.
    2. I have had a residence in AZ, CA, MI, OR, SC, IL, AR, and TX (8).
    3. I have spent more than a month on temporary duty (USAF) in NY, AL, and MS (3 more); also Johnston Island.
    4. I have lived in 3 foreign countries: Canada, Iran, and Germany.
    5. I have visited all but 2 Canadian Provinces, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Turkey, Greece, Italy (and Vatican City), France, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Latvia, Estonia, Russia, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, the British Isles (England, Scotland, Wales, and southern Ireland), Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Spain, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Belize, Honduras (Roatan), and Grand Cayman--and Germany and Iran, of course. (I think that covers them all.)

    I've not yet been anywhere in Africa or South America, but I have a deposit down on an African Safari (photo) next September.

    Being retired, in reasonable health, and with some financial resources has allowed me a lot of travel, beyond what my 20 years in USAF provided.
