It's pretty sad, since most of these are plane layovers. CA, WI, and OH (oh, and DC) are the only ones I've spent any substantial time in.

I could add Nebraska and Minnesota if I counted plane layovers, but I like to at least be able to spit on the ground or spend money in a non-airport capacity before I consider it a state visited.

Edit: And strangely enough, I've still never been to Seattle despite having a standing invite from a friend who comes in for Derby every year.

Edit (pt. deux): Since they don't have a Southern America map yet, I could also add Costa Rica and Mexico, but what're ya gonna do? (wait until they get it I suppose)

Of course, my time spent in many of these states can be measured in hours, such as when I drove from my old home in the North East to my current residence, or when I would drive through Connecticut to visit a friend who was attending college in Rhode Island. Texas, Illinois and Missouri were flight lay-overs, while Massachusetts was to catch a flight back home after a Rhode Island visit when I didn't bring my car. The trips to Kentucky and Alabama were both done in the same week, shortly after I moved to Tennessee a few years ago, and with the express intent of padding my "states visited" stats (a drive to Alabama for breakfast one day, a drive to Kentucky for dinner another day, just to be able to say "I was there"). The next state to be added will probably be Georgia, as I hope to take in a Braves game someday soon (preferably when my Mets are visiting).

You guys are CHEATING! I could've added Minnesota, Missouri, Arizona, and others if I remembered every airport I ever spent a layover in. Ohio's another one since I went Louisville/Cincinnati/Seattle one time. :)

I fear the midwest. and the east coast.

The midwest of Europe is okay, though.

Wow. Maybe I'm not so weird. I did one of these when I was your age. I have now been to 40 states and 38 countries It's embarrassing for us patriotic U.S. citizens to not have been to every state in the Union but our country total is bigger than our state total. My wife and my two daughters represent this fact.

CHEATING?!? Smile when you say that, mister! :-) But you did make me curious about how my map would look if I threw out the layover states. For that matter, I could toss out the drive thru states (after all, isn't that like a layover, except in a car?) along with the meal states. Alright, new criteria for my map: only those states where I've spent the night. That makes the total number nine, and it looks like this:

It also means that the next state I'll be adding probably won't be Georgia (unless that Braves game goes so long I fall asleep before it ends) but Illinois, as Harrah´s Metropolis Casino (harrahs.com) is on my list of places to spend a few days (perhaps even this summer).

There was an old PC game (was it called Empire?) where you could conquer the world and turn all the countries to your color. Red was one of the main colors, and this is making me want to play that game. That or watch coverage of a national election.

Most of these states have been traveled to by car. I don't count states I stopped for fuel and potty breaks in, but rather states I spent at least a day in. I've also been to Toronto twice.
