At the end of every year, I color a US map with the states I visited that year. This time, I have left only one unfortunate red marker, so every state becomes a red state. I visited more states in 2014, thirty-three!, than in any other year. Maine and Delaware outlie in the north. I skipped the South. I picked up Texas on a March flight to Austin with Ruben to attend the SXSW music festival.
I aim to visit all 50 states before I am 50. I am missing six. I can pick up 5 of the remaining 6 on a drive from Tulsa to the South Carolina coast. Another year, another car.
