    As much as I say the Midwest doesnít entice me, I would like to go there regardless. Traveling all the states sounds cool, Iím jealous of you guys.

    I had plans to do some traveling pre corona virus but now that I have a little bit of money saved up, Iím just gonna go on a bigger trip whenever this is all over.

    Iíd either like to go to Vancouver and work my way south, through Washington, Oregon, California. Or Iíd skip Vancouver and go from California to Vegas/Denver/Arizona. Hopefully Iíll be able to do all of this next summer, Iíll save the Midwest and more remote areas of the US when Iím a bit older lol.
    If Trump can become president with no political background then I don't understand why I need a resumť

    You should go up into Alaska and see some of the Glaciers, some are receding, some are expanding.
    Get on a zodiac up close with whales and Glaciers that are 30-40 stories of a Manhattan budiling tall but 30,000+ year old ice and 8 miles wide.

    You should really think about going to the Antarctic while you are young and can deal with "group boating". Walk where its too cold for man to live.

    Get out in the world where it's tougher to survive than NYC, where the elements and the animals can have you for lunch, live on the edge while its simple to do.

    Climb mountains in South America or Nepal. Get out in the rain forest. Once you get married or a FT job with obligations it gets harder to do.

    Iíve traveled a bit, donít get me wrong. Been to England a bunch of times, been to Pakistan, Canada, Pennsylvania, Jersey, DC, Delaware, Virginia, and Maryland in my life.

    Pakistan is easily the most difficult place to live and I was there for 3 1/2 months. Theyíre one of the countries that are going to be affected the most because of climate change due to the geography. The mountains and cities are beautiful there but most of what Iíve seen is quite barren, dry, and the soil sucks. In terms of elements, itís quite a challenging place to be lol, thatís not even mentioning the wildlife thatís lurking and the poisonous snakes. Iím sure Nasty could attest to that lol.

    The polar opposite (no pun intended) would be interesting to experience in a shorter period of time. I would like to travel the world but my mind is currently made up that Iíd like to travel the states first.

    I can assure you Minneapolis, St Paul, St Louis, Chicago, or Detroit, are FAR from the country haha.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I haven't been to:

    Hawaii
    Alaska
    Vermont
    N Carolina
    S Carolina
    Nebraska
    Utah

    States only driven through:
    Oregon
    Alabama
    Georgia
    Kentucky
    Pennsylvania
    Delaware

    I have zero interest in living in the south again, unless it's perhaps Austin, TX. Even then, probably not. Ever.

    lol, yup. It was also the first place I saw marijuana growing wild everywhere.

    Me and my cousin were smoking paki weed from our front yard, lol, this was in like '97. We had to smoke so much to finally get high.

    I haven't been to any of the "stans".

    Almost took a contract in 1980 to work in Saudi Arabia in an oil company compound, but after readying the rules it wasn't for me, I think it was about 120k a year in 1980 as a CM. I forget the time there vs come home time but it was about 6 - 9 months and then they flew you back for 2-3 weeks. then you went back, it was a 2 year contract. That was 3x what I was making and there was no living expense, food and shelter were included.

    I have been to Holland, France, Italy, Austria, Germany, Tahiti, Mexico, Canada, and I think either Costa Rica or Panama airport only when a plane had trouble and had to go south and land.

    I have worked in California, Colorado, Texas, Italy, Florida, Georgia, Nevada.
    Our company has done jobs in about 30 of the 48 states along with Shanghai, Hong Kong, Mexico City, Tokyo, Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto.

    But for visiting and scenery I love Alaska, Tahiti, lots of California, Colorado, Parts of the Dakotas and Wyoming.

    I've been to every state but 3.

    If California was actually as leftist as every Republican thinks it is, and not just a neoliberal/capitalist hell hole, it would far and away be the best.

    Utah's even worse politically, but is my favorite state geographically. So many amazing national parks and diverse landscapes.

    I'll never live in the South. Hands down the worst part of this country. Stick me in a Nebraska cornfield over the bayou!
