USA Map

My wife bought me the vinyl map of the USA that marks the states you visited . She claims we can mark off a state that we drove through , I said only when we visited that state .

What say you ?

We established a rule that to add the state sticker to the map we have to spend at least one night in the state. It's like when we were working we had to leave the airport to count a state.

My vote would be if you stayed over night while traveling thru, it counts!

My friend says you have to touch the ground with your shoes or foot. I say the wheels of the coach have to touch the state. Dozens of ways to do it. Go there, sleep there, rv must be there over night. It's all up to you. We been in all 50. Rv has been in 48 and we have slept in most but just drove through a couple on the eastern side. So on this one you get to make your own rules. Enjoy this wonderful USA

Have 2 maps, one for you and one for your wife. One to mark just driving thru like we've done and then one to mark when you spend at least one nite.

There is no right way and no wrong way to mark the map. Just make sure you and your wife are on the same page with it.

This thread brings to mind many different scenarios:
  1. what if you visited a state but not with an RV?
  2. if you get a new RV do you need to get a new map and start over?
  3. why bother putting Hawaii on the map?

Just pondering...

x2. That's what I plan to do. Have been thru Philly, Washington DC, Chicago and Houston airports but I wouldn't say I've been to Penn, DC, Illinois and Texas. Had an overnight in Atlanta once and visited downtown so I would count Geogia.

Each to their own though.

Our rule is we must spend the night in our coach, just passing through doesn't count!

Would you buy a RV that had a map with all the states colored in ??? Shows a whole lot of "wear and tear" wouldn't you say ?

Where does it say you can't take your coach to Hawaii? It just takes $$$$$$ lol.
