I have struggled to find my voice with this blog and have decided to try a slightly different approach.  Growing up it was important to my parents that we take a week long family vacation each summer.  Nothing extravagant and always road trips.  They also frequently involved a learning experience for my brother and me; whether it was a visit to a Civil War battlefield or the Smithsonian.  I don’t recall when the travel bug bit me, I was too young to realize what was happening, or perhaps I was just born with the bug.  Several years ago with said bug firmly entrenched in my DNA, I decided my goal is to make it to all 50 States by the time I am 50.  For reference, I have visited 31 States in my 32 years on this planet.

I hope that as the audience of this blog grows, I acquire feedback from my followers for things to do in the States I have yet to visit and reasons to re-visit States I’ve already ventured into.
