    I have Iowa and Alaska to go among the fifty states.
    Alaska requires some effort but I don't know how you dodged Iowa this long. The last of the fifty states I set foot in was Michigan but it sits up there out of the way and you have to deliberately go there.
    Part of the reason is that I am a track alumnus at Penn so the Drake Relays are the best track & field meet I shall never see. :wink:

    Over twenty years ago, I was in Fairmont, MN on business a few miles from the Iowa border. If it had been summer, I'd have jogged to the border and back , but it was winter, over a foot of snow on the ground, and I did not have a car. So I am still waiting to set foot in Iowa.

    Okay, Marlow, but that is a slippery slope...
    Even the slightest slip on that type of site could create quite a sight, for which you could be cited, or even short-sighted - you have been duly warned, amigo.

    I note with interest, however, that Marlow, who rightfully prides himself on his near perfect spelling, has referred to a porn "sight", rather than a porn "site".
    A clever pun, or a Freudian slip of the highest order ? I am betting on the latter - we caught you, Marlow... :wink:
    Neither. I'm sure it's just the dreaded homophone glitch. It happens to awl of us.
    to ewe awl, maybe, But I ain't never had no homophone glitch, naught won that eye wood admit two, anyweigh.... And I'm sure Marlow is not homophonic...

    I'm going with Freudian slip! [but I could be wrong!]

    Who says, Marlow's advice is not the best? :wink:
    Yes, Marlow does show "flashes" of brilliance

    I have 187 from that travel ranking Web site, but it sort of "robbed" me of about 50 places. For example: as rich and varied as Thailand is you only get 1 and I've been up and down that country, and to a dozen Thai islands. Similarly, in Indonesia, there are 17,000 islands, I've probably been to at least 30, but only get 5 to check on their list.

    I just missed Iowa 22 years ago when I was in Fairmont, MN just a few miles from the Iowa border on a business trip. In the summer, I'd have jogged to the border and back, but it was winter, more than a foot of snow on the ground and I had no car. I hope finally to make it Iowa at the end of this month when the USATF Associations workshop is in Des Moines.

    I got up to 96; 48 states + DC, most of the Canadian provinces, and most of Europe.

    I kick myself for being at the northern most tip of Yellowstone and not driving the extra six miles north in the dead of night to get to Montana. That was 25 years ago this fall, and I have little reason to go there except for this very purpose.
    What is the other state than Montana that you are missing? Iowa? We know you'll never go there in April. :wink:
    I was born and went to college in "The Big Sky Country". Glacier Park is beautiful and where else but Missoula can you get a great micro brew called Moose Droll?

    Aside from the food, I'd go to Vegas for a night just to see the Blue Man Group again (or one of the Cirque de Soleils).

    Having said that, Vegas is a shithole (oh yeah, dam is worth visiting) full of losers.
