vinyl maps for recording where you have been

What is the general consensus about whether you just record going through
a state or do you have to camp there to mark it off on the vinyl map?

rbracing60,
Like Richard said, you get to decide.

We use a visited states graphic on our blog and only count the state if we overnighted in the RV. For a while we would get the occasional comment from a friend asking how we got from A to C without going through B, but once we explained they understood. It does leave funny holes in the map, though, but that causes us to be more creative when planning subsequent trips so we can fill in a blank state. All part of the fun.

Have fun building memories and filling in your map however you choose to color it in.

Just individual choice. We count it once the coach is there, whether or not we overnight there.

Welcome to the forum.

It is your map so it is your rules. Don't let anyone else tell you how to record your travels.

My rule (for the Gkids) has been that feet must touch the ground (grass or dirt) to put a state on the map. That gets them out of the coach and a chance to look around. That worked for years until the 11 year old mentioned that we could not put the state we were in on the map because our stops and tourist activities required him to walk on concrete or black top. He never touched the grass or dirt (11 year old logic is the same as attorney logic). Once he made the comment, he was required to get his shoes on and go step on the grass.

I like your rule Gary...at least get out and walk around for it to count! Breathe the fresh (or maybe not so fresh) air. Plus fuel stops count, because we leave a sizeable chunk of change there.
