This idea comes from my friend Hugh. I thought it was kinda cool.
My cousins (brother & sister to each other) are in a race to see who can "get" all 50 states first. "Get" means "go to." So even if it's just stepping foot in the place, they've "got" it. I bet their lists are much more BOLDED than mine, though I think I probably have them both beat with the number of underlines. Anyhow, here goes:
bold the states you've been to, underline the states you've lived in and italicize the state you're in now...
Alabama / Alaska / Arizona / Arkansas / California / Colorado / Connecticut / Delaware / Florida / Georgia / Hawaii / Idaho / Illinois / Indiana / Iowa / Kansas / Kentucky / Louisiana / Maine / Maryland / Massachusetts / Michigan / Minnesota / Mississippi / Missouri / Montana / Nebraska / Nevada / New Hampshire / New Jersey / New Mexico / New York / North Carolina / North Dakota / Ohio / Oklahoma / Oregon / Pennsylvania / Rhode Island / South Carolina / South Dakota / Tennessee / Texas / Utah / Vermont / Virginia / Washington / West Virginia / Wisconsin / Wyoming / Washington D.C /
