Where I've been, in the U.S.

I found this link in Roy's journal - it generates a map that will highlight the states you select. I checked off the ones that I have visited or travelled through; looks like I have east of the Mississippi pretty well covered. Lots of big rectangular states out there in the breadbasket I haven't seen; I think I'll wait until I have a faster plane...

The same site has a world map, which I haven't done well on; and it's a bit deceiving. I've made tiny forays into Canada and Mexico, for example, but it highlights the whole country in each case, from the arctic circle down to Central America. My only off-continent travel so far has been one trip to England, the Netherlands and Belgium. But I'm looking forward to traveling with Gail, and expanding my world a bit.

create your own visited states map.

Pictures, 1000 words, etc.

No stories today, but I have been uploading a lot of my flying photos to my Flickr photo page. Summer sun and blue skies... *sigh*

I see that Roy had a good idea; use a journal entry as a scrapbook, a la Orkut. Let's try it out... scrap me!
