Cool map thing

I came across this today, I thought it very cool. Mr Z wondered aloud why I had missed out the middle bit and I had to explain that I had made a big loop during my mega bus odyssey in 2001.

visited 29 states (58%)

(I will leave their bit of advertising code in so you can do this for yourself if you like).

I really wanted to include Idaho and Montana, both of which we sort of wandered into during our Grand Tour of Yellowstone in 2007, but it seemed to be cheating a little, especially since my trips to the Carolinas were little more than layovers during flights. I figured it's a trade off.

I got my cheque through from the insurance company last week (FINALLY!) so I can book this summer's America trip starting on Friday. Can't say we'll be adding any more states to it - maybe Oregon and Idaho, if we get that far north. The main focus this year, though, is camping in Yosemite; and white water rafting. I am DEFINITELY going white water rafting this summer, I've always wanted to do it.

In case you were wondering, I do have a weekend FO but I only took it off the blocking foam after it got dark tonight so I don't have a nice picture to post. It's the pretty pinwheel shawl. Hopefully there will be pretty pictures of it tomorrow.
