Here's mine:

Maine
Vermont
New Hampshire
Ohio
West Virginia
Virginia
North Dakota. (I had to drive a ways out of my way, but I managed to miss it)

I'm not sure if they have anything in common other than I haven't been there.

The state I've spent the most time:

Confusion

Someone please convince me for a reason to visit North Dakota please?
Lewis and Clark trail, Minute Man Missile Silo you can take a tour of, every area out there has some history from the old west if you just search it out. The Dakota boys "Fred" from gold rush is from Minot, You can go through the oil fields in NW North Dakota and see how our country should be growing if govmt would get out of the way.

In 2010 Sue (Frank and Sue) were trying to arrange a "Flat Front" motorhome gathering in Albuquerque for fall of 2011 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the CLIPPER. My plan was to proceed east from there to Florida possibly for a winter stay. Frank/Sue had some family health problems and sold their Clipper and interest dissipated. I am still waiting for a good reason to visit all the southern States.

Funny I still trying to find a good reason to visit BC. Southern hospitality? We are the friendliest people in the country if we like you if not well.......

I don't know about now, with all the oil patch activity, but a few years ago I used to meet the nicest people in the world in North Dakota. Honestly happy that you were visiting them and their state.

And then one 50 degree morning in Cando ND, a guy in the service station asked me if I had the AC on, as there was some liquid coming out from under my 310 motorhome. I said no, it was too cold for AC. I looked and it was green... anti freeze. They sent a mechanic out to look and he said "yup, water pump is leaking". I asked if they could repair it, and they said "if there is a water pump in town". They called and there was only one for a Chev 454. They sent a guy to get it. They put it in their truck bay, the guy replaced the pump by laying on the top of the engine and doing the wrenching by feel, blind. Noon came, he kept working. About 12:30 he was done. The total bill was $145. I would have thought twice that to be a good deal.

Nicest people I have ever met. And ND state parks are very interesting, in a lonely way.

They are all beautiful and magical in and of themselves. The people, the land, the highways. Best is to take time, get off the freeways, turn off the radio, etc., stop at the historical markers, and try to learn why people settled, loved, fought for, died in, and perhaps left each particular state. I find particularly interesting the border areas of states, where they might blend easily or roughly into others.

All of Idaho is beautiful, but then I am a resident... and I too like the Badlands of the Dakotas.

In Nebraska, stay in the Campground in the Nebraska National Forest. Yep, the Nebraska National Forest. The only man made National Forest in the country. All planted. Or drive highway 20 across the entire top of Nebraska. In May of one year I had never seen or run over more rattlesnakes in one day than on that route. Amazing. Every pickup truck with Nebraska plates was hauling a horse trailer, none with horses in it. I figure they come from the dealer hitched up, and they never take them off the ball.

There is something to see in all states, if nothing else, get off the damn interstate and enjoy the true back country that is the United States.

Awh, poor Kansas. I've been there. It was great camping near Oakley. I remember some of the best bacon I ever had. And, what about Dorothy and Toto? We get impressions of places- I know. I used to dislike Arkansas and South Carolina but now- nope. SC is great. I haven't been out Arkansas way for a while though they tell me that the Ozarks are nice.

My not been there list is:

Maine
Dakotas
Iowa
Wisconsin
Minnesota
Nebraska
Northwest - WA, ID, MT, AK

There's a wonderful little road that connects US 20 in northern Nebraska with US 18 in southern South Dakota. At Kilgore (West of Valentine) you head north on the Kilgore Road, which turns into BIA 13 when it crosses the border into SD and onto the Rosebud Sioux reservation. This way you go through the agency town of Rosebud, which straddles Rosebud Creek, and its timbered (!) canyon, and you begin to understand why Spotted Tail chose this place for the res. agency. It's like going back in time . . .

Ft. Robinson is on Hwy 20 near Crawford, NE. Nice campground.
Hwy 20 is a good road all across the state. Small towns, nice people.

The only two states that we have never been in are Alaska and Hawaii. We have Airstreamed in all all of the lower 48. Now that we have a new Airstream, we will have to hit them all again.
