Oliver’s face is great, don’t get me wrong. It’s not her face that’s the problem. The problem is that I’ve toured across the country with my college touring choir, but I can’t say that I’ve actually seen much of the country. Mostly because– as the amber waves of grain were flying past my tour bus window– Oliver’s face was in the way.
A tour bus is no way to travel.
So, in the next five years, I’d like to really spend some time getting to know a few states that I’ve never visited. I’d like to take time to stroll through their cities and towns, eat their foods, learn what makes them special and what makes them proud. If given the chance, I’d like to cheer against their sports teams.
I mean FOR, cheer for their sports teams.
There are 32 states on my list. Some of which (Alaska, Hawaii!), I have never stepped foot in. Others (Idaho? Illinois?) I may have crossed through or spent a night in, at some point, but I don’t remember.
Here is my list. Where are your favorite places in the US? Which states would you recommend?
Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisina, Maine, Massachutes, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakoda, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin.
See you on the road!
