I thought a states "visited" meant states visited, not camped in, not done ______ in or anything else. I guess though it can be any rule you choose. You could do a three color tier map and progressively upgraded the state color from visited, camped in to _______.

OK everyone..... I was ribbed like crazy at our Instalation Rally this past weekend and since Sandi doesn't check on me in the forum she was a bit... well you know! Now I have to wash dishes in every state!

I have asked this question to the guys at the local RV store, a few SOB owners, and even another Airstream owner... everyone has a different stance. One guy said he will only apply a sticker if it is his destination state, another says if he passes through he claims that state, another said that if he can see the state from his window he checks it off. We use the rule of sleep there and the state is yours... guess a nap counts as sleeping. I have been collecting vintage water decals of the states and plan to apply them to the inside of the door within the door. I have quite a few of locations that one cannot sleep at. For those our rule is the full tour must be taken and a picnic must be performed in leu of sleeping there. I like the idea of the fornication map though... of course, it would need the stipulation of "while inside the Airsream".

Now you tell me! If I followed that rule I would have three additional states. Inside is much more private!

Getting ready to add Florida into my "States Visited" map next week, leaving here on New Years Day, then hitting the Can Opener Rally in the Florida panhandle next weekend and then on to Key West for the rest of Jan... We have been down to Key West before, but this will be the first trip with the Airstream.

My criteria for adding a state to my states visited is "if the trailer goes thru the state being towed by my truck then the sticker goes on." I'll admit that it is not a very difficult criteria, but it is nice and straight forward and easy enough to determine yes/no. Plus, I have repeatedly told my wife that when the map is full, that means we have to buy another Airstream !!! I know she is figuring that maybe we will get Alaska, but there is no way we will ever get Hawaii... (but I am thinking that there must be a car ferry or something from Los Angeles.....)

Anyway, one other thing I do is to trace out the approximate route we take across the state so that while I have been "in" a particular state, I try to show whereabouts I was and that no, I haven't been to everywhere in the state. I trace out the road using a "metallic silver" sharpie pen. as shown.

At any rate, I have my map on the curb side near the hot water heater and hopefully in the closeup pics you can see my highway tracings as to the actual route taken. Just over 15,000 miles in the last 2 years.

best regards, Dave & Shari

The way I personally define "map eligibility" is to have either:
Spent the night in the state
Spent the day in the state (not passing through)
Conducted business in the state while in the state.

I agree with Dave. If the Airstream and I (and/or Brad) have been in the state, it goes on the map. Or will when I redo the map...

And I really like your route diagram with the Sharpie, Dave!

"...At any rate, I have my map on the curb side near the hot water heater..." We like your idea of tracing your route also, Dave and Shari. We put our states' map on the inside surface of our door. Since we usually travel in summer or to warm places in winter, the door is more often than not open when we are in camp, and is there for people walking by to see and stop and discuss. Even so, we are finding that the edges of our states keep curling up. I was afraid to put it on the exterior of the trailer for that very reason. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, how have you corrected it? ~G

Haven't put the map outside yet... I'd try a small line of clear fingernail polish to keep the edges from curling. Just a thought.

I love the sharpie idea!

I posted this in another thread a long time ago, but now I can't find it. Our map is affixed to a piece of plexi, it hangs on the inside of the back window with suction cups. When we check off a state I color it in with 'stained glass paint'. Looks pretty, and it's durable.

* that's an old pic, I have a lot more states colored in now! *

Hi again,

I like the thought of having the map on a piece of plexiglas so it could be moved into a new Airstream if you changed or got a new trailer. So that way you would not have to start all over again. My rear window is tinted though, so not sure if would work there. We started over with a new, blank states map when we got the Airstream because all our previous camping was either in a tent or with a pickup/camper and we wanted a new map of just Airstream travels. So we "lost" a lot of our northern states and a couple Alaska trips but wil get back there one of these days with the Airstream and then will add it back in.

I like the map on the exterior mainly because as a little kid we would spend a lot of our summers riding with my dad in his truck (18-wheeler) mostly across North & South Dakota and Montana and we would always see these RVs and trailers that would pass us and they had one of these maps, usually on the back and I would always look at it to see all the places they had been - and always said that I was going to get one someday.

50 years later and I now have my map. :-)

regards, Dave
