States I’ve Visited

I’ve been to all 50 states in the US. When I was in my 20s, I set a goal to hit all 50 states before my 50th birthday. I was born in Illinois, and the first state I visited was Missouri. I don’t know when it was, but it was very early in my life – that’s where my grandparents lived, and we visited them frequently.


I checked the final state – Idaho – off my list on August 3rd of last year. It was a month after my 50th birthday so I didn’t exactly hit my goal, but I still count it as a “win”.
