  • How Many US States Have You Drove In?

    .....or rode through in a car?

    After reading Freiburger's Holeshot Editor-In-Chief's Letter in the new Mar. 11' Hot Rod, where he wrote about his passion for maps over GPS, and that he has been in 41 US states over the years, and keeps track of all the roads he's travelled on, I took a count of how many I have been in via roads and wheeled travel.

    Other than my home state of NY, I can add PA,ME,VT,NJ,NH,CT,DE,MA,MD,WV,VA and NC. Also, the Niagara Falls area of Canada too. Oddly enough, thats 13 US states, my lucky number but, this summer, I hope to add a few more to the list, and I may take 'burger's lead, and start marking my travels down on a map or two, just to remember where I've been.


    So Dave, out of the 41 states you have been in, which ones are left to visit?

        I have been to 35. I still have AK, HI, OR, MT, ID, ND, LA, DE, NJ, CT, RI, MS, NH, VT, and ME left. My time in the Marines has helped, since it has given me a few long distance moves (NC to CA, CA to WI, WI back to CA, and CA to GA). Now, the unit I am with travels to reserve units around the country and inspects their equipment, maintenance procedures, and maintenance records, so that has added a few states to list of states I have driven in.

            I haven't driven through Maine, Vermont, New Hamphire, or Massachusetts, but I've been all over Canada and Mexico, so I think that makes up for it. I once drove a couple miles out in the Artic Ocean to deliver some parts to an off shore rig.

                  I'd have to look at a map

                  I've driven thru most of the western states, but I still need to get up to Montana and Wyoming. And I have only driven around the northeast in a rental car long ago for gov't work. I've never been to florida. So yeah, I need more road trip(s) in the future. Maybe my new truck and camper will be a part of it.

                    Its easier for me to put the ones I havent been to. CA, NV, UT, ND, MT, ID, ME, MA, VT, AK, HI and Pennsylvania...

                    The list of countries I have been to is pretty long too. Being in the military for a while does that. Have even been to countries that dont exist anymore.

                      Pretty much all of 'em in the lower 48. I've usually driven for vacations so, for the most part, if I've been there I've driven there. Not sure if I've been to Maine as I think about it but I hope to add that with a trip to Loring in the next couple of years. Just a couple of years ago ME and I drove to the Grand Canyon and covered a few states that I've never been - Arizona among them. And a lot of the states I've driven with a dog (is that extra credit?).

                        between motorcycle and car trips, I got em all except Hawaii-still have not been over there. I guess if I could drive over, I might go....

                          only got 33 done, guess I need to get driving.

                          i have a GPS, but only use it as a back up, as I use maps to plan.
                          my favorite road trip weapon is this 2 in thick book, that I picked up at a cracker barrel rest.

                          I really recommend this book, I dont go on vacation without it!
