Thursday Thirteen 6/5/2008 20th Edition

Not the most interesting list I've ever done, but I was kind of surprised at how many states I haven't been, considering how much I like to think I like to get around. (Take that however you wish)

I've clearly missed some places.

Thirteen States I've Never Been
  1. North Carolina
  2. Montana
  3. Virginia
  4. Delaware
  5. Georgia
  6. Arkansas
  7. Louisiana
  8. Missouri
  9. West Virginia
  10. South Carolina
  11. New Jersey
  12. Connecticut
  13. New York
So, what am I missing? Do you live in one of these states? Travel to one often? Have relatives in another? Never been to any like me?

  1. I live in Texas...but I LOVE's a gorgeous state with the Majestic Rocky Mountains.

    My thirteen is shared, hope you can come by and leave a 'howdy-do' in ghe comments!!!

  2. Virginia you are missing the Nations capital, its amazing. New York you are missing Times square and Broadway! Take a day trip on a bus to new york.

    Very nice list! I like that! Come on over and check out the 13 BOUNCE on my blog! Have a great day!

  3. I have never been to the US but hope to visit one day!

  4. ive only been to 2 of the states on your list. would also love to see the rest!

  5. I haven't been to most of these states. Missouri is interesting. Virginia Beach was beautiful, but I was 13 so I don't remember much about it except for the pictures I kept! This is a creative list, I'll have to borrow the idea sometime!

  6. Okay, first of all Maggie you do get around, we all know that. :)

    Of the 13 you list I've been in Montana, Georgia, Arkansas, New Jersey & New York. I can really only comment on New York. I love Manhattan and would really dig the chance to head upstate to check it out some time. At least get yourself to NYC, if you can make it there you can make it anywhere. LOL

    Happy TT!

  7. I've been to North Carolina (great bbq!!!), Delaware, WVA (Harper's Ferry was cool), SC (honeymooned there; new amusement park in Myrtle Beach with Zep music that I want to see!), NJ (city & country), CT (scary there, I don't like it), NY (city & country, love it all!) and I lived in VA, near the ocean for 1.5 years.

  8. I'm pretty sure I've never been to Delaware, but the rest I think I've been at least through. Although, Connecticut and Louisiana don't ring any bells for me.

    Great list. Happy TT!

  9. Happy Thursday 13! Love the list and I haven't been to any of those states except for New Jersey, which I have visited relatives and New York because I live there. Hope to see you at my 4th edition about Kerrelyn Sparks at Talk About My Favorite Authors blog.

  10. Does it count if you drive through those states? Or do you have to actually stay there. Because that would lower my number big-time. I like to feel like I travel a lot too and if you count driving through a state to get to another or a layover at an airport I've been to lots! Actually visiting, however is another story.I'd always like to visit Delaware just to be like Wayne in Wayne's World and say, "Hi. I'm in Delaware."

  11. There are a whole crapload of states I haven't been too. I will say that North Carolina is absolutely beautiful. Go, if you get the chance!

  12. omg MAGGIE! I LOVE IT!!!!! Do you like it??? This new look looks great on you!!!! (ever watch saturday night live? here i am being molly shannon:

    I love it I love it I love it I lovvvve it! (leg kicking wildly in air).

  13. Ohmygosh … you’ve changed your look again! Well done (though I must say I liked the pretty grey format you had previously … I do enjoy your experimentations and wish I had time (and know-how) to play with MY blog layouts ;--)

    As for the list … methinks I’ve been to all 50 states and I hope you get to visit these sometime. My T-13 is at Small Reflections.
    Hugs and blessings,

  14. I grew up in NJ, and while it gets a bad rap, it is a beautiful state! And, of course, easy access to NYC.
