On the Roadi
And I'm not talking a stopover in O'Hare on the way to LAX. I'm counting states where I've spent at least one night.
They are: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nevada, my beloved New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington DC.
That's 16 states (17 if you count DC) in 37 years. That's kinda lame, no?
I thought so too. Which is why I was psyched when my good friend Jodi came up with a brilliant idea to visit all 50 states! Not all at once, obviously. We still have jobs. And lives (well, at least SHE does). But once or twice a year, we'll visit someplace new in search of adventure.
This will keep us busy well into old age... just in time to let our wrinkly bikini bodies loose on all the Caribbean Islands. Thank God for cruise ships, or we'd have to live to be 120.
Anyway, fate will decide the state we visit next, and YOU can follow along on our new blog, On the Roadi with Jen & Jodi.
We'll even be tweeting from the road(i) so we can instantly share the thrill of finding the world's largest frying pan (in Rose Hill, NC), or feel like giants in Tiny World (in Shippensburg, PA), or show our contribution to the Gum Wall (in Seattle, WA), which would be a fitting pit-stop considering how we first became friends nearly 20 years ago.
We're picking our first destination out of a hat on 1/1/11 from Fairfield, CT, where it all began. I hope you come along for the ride!
So, how many states have YOU visited? And have any cool tips on places to see and things to do? Tell me below!
