I mentioned in my A to Z Challenge posts (April 2017), that I had some goals that I wanted to reach by the last day of my thirty-ninth year of life. So, I'm going to use this page to continually update. I guess I should have 39 things? Since that corresponds....
The first thing is a big one. I want to visit all of the United States. I've been to 25 out of the 50 as of 5/15/17. I'm half way there but I am not counting places where I have only been in the airport (Arizona, Utah, Ohio and New York.)
States I need to hit up:
Idaho - June 2017
Alaska - 2019
South Dakota - June 2017
Ohio - March 2018
West Virginia - March 2018
Delaware - March 2018
Maryland - March 2018
