reverse your question..the only states that I have not touch ground on are Alaska and Kentucky..Alaska comes off the list next summer when I go on the Dave Koz and Friends Cruise and I'll do research to see if there is a Jazz Festival in Kentucky and make plans to attend so I can say i've been in all 50 states

good question Luanne

I've only been to Florida (many times in order to cruise...), California (HI Judy & Keith!), N.Y. City once, never again...., Ogunquit Maine once as a child, and Vermont (Hi VTJen!). I think Ipassed through New Hampshire once on my way to Nova Scotia...
Guess I have a lot more to visit!

I've been in almost all of the 50 states. I still have four to go: Maine, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and West Virginia.

My goal is to set foot on all six continents. I still have Antarctica and Oceania (Australia) to go.

Take care,
Mike

I'm sorry Fern. You are so right I have been there. It was one of the most enjoyable trips we have made.

JIm and I are going to La Crosse Wi on the 29th of this month. I am told that it is not all there is, and since the Mississippi river is not far, and Minn is on the other side, we will be going to check out the area.

This should be an easy trip for Jim, with normal hours, so hopefully we can do some sightseeing. We will be there for 11 days.

Luanne, if you get to the Mpls/St. Paul area in MN, try to visit the Mall of America. Even for non-shoppers, its a sight to see. Hope you have wonderful weather while you are up there!

My personal bucket list was topped with Greece (Acropolis) and Egypt (Pyramids) which we did in October of last year. Now we are working on my husband's list.

His bucket list includes seeing all 7 continents - so far we've toured quite of bit of North America (Canada, USA, Mexico, Costa Rica, Caribbean) and some of South America (Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Venezela), Europe (Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Croatia), Asia (Turkey), Africa (Egypt) -- we are heading to Asia again in October (China), South America/Antarctica (won't get to step on it but will at least see it) in December and Africa (Kenya African Safari) in June 2011.

That leaves Australia still to do.
