Ben's aunt and uncle, Arenda and Bob are passing through Birmingham this weekend on their way out West. They are headed to South/North Dakota (can't remember which) and Nebraska to complete Bob's 50 state bucket list. These are the only 2 states Bob hasn't visited in his lifetime. I'm not exactly sure of Bob's age, but I find it very impressive that in a week or so he will have visited every state in the U.S. This litlte bucket list inspired my dear husband to send around an e-mail to the family with his 50 state bucket list. I thought I would share. I'm working on mine and will post it later.
States I haven't been to (ranking of where I'd like to visit):
New Hampshire- 9
Rhode Island- 10
West Virginia- 11
New Mexico- 2
Most beautiful state visited:
Florida- easy choice. Beaches, hot weather, theme parks. FUN.
Ugliest state visited:
Louisiana- swamps, coon asses, LSU.
State I'd most like to visit again:
New York- really want to get upstate more and a trip to NYC is always great.
State I'd least like to visit again:
North Dakota- just drove through it but seemed like a good place to find meth...and that's about it.
Southernmost point visited:
Northernmost point visited:
Coldest place visited:
Probably Kalispell, MT, though I'm fairly certain the winter Harrison was born in Cleveland was the coldest I have ever been
Hottest place visited:
Phoenix, AZ, some putt-putt golf place we were at had temps at 108 when we were out there...Miami's heat indices were really high but there always seemed to be a breeze
State with the best cuisine:
New York or California, both seemed like you could get the very best of anything in the world.
State with the worst cuisine:
Arkansas, though this may be unfair as I have only eaten at a Krystal's and a greyhound racing establishment in this state.
