Randy Seaver at Genea-Musings writes a weekly blog post called Saturday Night Genealogy Fun. Each week he picks a fun topic to write about over the weekend. This week’s topic focuses on the states you have visited in the United States. He found a fun website where you can color in the states to identify where and how much time you have spent.
My tally – 45 states and 3 Canadian provinces. My map being colored in so much has to do with my dad’s career. He spent 30 years in the Coast Guard. Since his jobs were always located on a coast, we have driven across country MANY times. We always made these moves into sight-seeing trips.
I have hopes to take my kids on many long road trips in the next 15 years so that they get to experience all of the United States. Hopefully, I will be able to finish coloring my map in at the same time. There is so much to see!!
Here is my map:
- red for states where you’ve not spent much time or seen very much.
- amber for states where you’ve at least slept and seen some sights.
- blue for states you’ve spent a lot of time in or seen a fair amount of.
- green for states you’ve spent a great deal of time in on multiple visits.
