Re: Where have you been ?!!!!

I think it is believed that only the affluent can afford to travel to the continent and other places. Owe my world travels to Uncle Sam. Had it not been for him, probably would of never been out of Delware. Oh, so sad. Well there is the trip Maryland on Sundays to get beer.

Spain
Greece
England
Scotland
Norway
Germay
Italy
Sicily
Bahrain
Thailand
Japan
France
Israel
Diego Garcia (aka Dodge)

States:

Delaware
Florida
Virginia
Maryland
Maine
California
Tennesee
Indiana
Ohio
VI's

And all the states in between the transfers. We tried to spend a day or two in each state for the kids to get out and look around. The states have a lot to offer in and of themselves. Think about it, we have deserts, beaches, mountains, plains and tropical islands. Why is there a reason to travel to Europe? Cool and all but... One more place for me to go, Austrailia. Met some of the local militia out here a couple of months ago. Oh, it is so time to check the place out.

Re: Where have you been ?!!!!

As stated to Cowboy: 43 states, Canada (Alberta, BC, Ontario, Quebec), Mexico and Marshall Islands. I plan to add the rest of my states, the rest of the Canadian provinces (plotting a ride up the east coast into the Maritimes one day), Australia, New Zealand and all of the British Isles. And short of a major shift in life I believe I will. Although I have heard those Brits paint spots on sheep

Sorry but one more time just for you. Huntsville has one of the nations highest per capita education levels. We send stuff to space and are called the rocket city for a reason.

Of course you can watch TV and believe it all about the south. Personally I love the low population density, low taxes and great mountain roads but I can understand the urge to huddle together in a huge herd and bleat..... wait no I can't
