A state of mind

On our vey first road trip in 2007 we were driving through Arizona on an old part of the original route 66, the once famous "mother road stretching all the way from Chicago to Los Angeles. We stopped at a gas station/ souvenir shop and found these fridge magnets. I'm not saying this is the only reason but somewhere from this moment was born the idea to visit every state in the U.S, a quest which has kept us coming back year after year. At first we bought a new magnet after we visited a state but since they seem to get harder and harder to find we just ordered them all of the web. We only count the states we've actually spent some time in not the ones we say just changed flights in or flew over. So the states we've visited so far are:

  • California                            
  • Arizona
  • Nevada
  • Oregon
  • Washington
  • Idaho
  • Montana
  • Utah
  • Colorado
  • New Mexico
  • Wyoming
  • Texas
  • Louisiana
  • Tennessee
  • Mississippi
  • Alabama
  • Georgia
  • Florida
  • New Jersey
  • New York


  1. Will there be any new state om the on the next trip?

  2. North & south Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland & Delaware
