States Visited Maps

I've been wonderin'.......

What is your criteria for checking off a state on your States Visited Map ?

Do you have to stay a night in that state ? Stay two, or just drive thru ?

Texas is a BIG place. I feel funny saying " yeah, I've been to Texas" when I've only really seen hundreds of miles from my window and a couple dusty ol' bars for instance.

Should you stay a day and see something significant or historical to qualify ? Stop and buy a souvenir and send a postcard ? Make a new friend, or is a fill up and a cup of coffee at the local diner OK ?

We are checking them off if we have camped in the state in our trailer. That is just the way we want to look at it.

Yes, everyone seems to have different guidlines and ours used to be we had to camp in the state to earn it. We have since changed the rules and we now need to ______ in the state while camping now that we are married. Perhaps we need to add a new map to the wall of the bedroom!

Yea! And what did you think I meant? It can be 'wash the dishes', 'start a campfire' or what have you. I don't need my warning meter to go up!

And yes, its Rick

You bought the map so I guess you can set any criteria you want.

I thought the official requirement is the same as the mile high club. If you satisfy the criteria, whatever it is, at the 4 corners monument do you get New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado?

No, none of those answers fit - it's only one ______, and those have more than one word. Can you give us a clue??

To answer the thread - my take on it - spend one night in trailer, get a state. But, you can do what you want.

Well, truth be known, we didn't buy the map.

I have wondered at other's maps though, who have checkerboarded their way across the country thinking.... " How day do dat ? "

Guess now I know !

I'd always wondered about those checkerboard maps too. That particular Criteria never occured to me.
