Places I've Been

I didn't include brief stopovers and the like. It's clear that I have much to see.

Note that my U.S. map is fairly similar to Al Gore's electoral map in the 2000 election. You tell me what that means. Maybe it's a prediction of how Kerry will do in 2004. If only I hadn't taken that drive from LA to Chicago . . .

. . . note that I've been to Texas, however. Nix that theory.

It's kind of funny to look at the world map and see northern Canada and southern Mexico highlighted. I've never been much past the border of those countries, but the map makes it seem like I'm a well-traveled mountaineer. It would be cool if they let you designate locations by region for the larger nations; but you can only ask for so much.

In the meantime, I highly recommend the Yukon Territory. If you've always wanted to visit Siberia but are only willing to travel 3,000 miles or so, the Yukon Territory will suit you nicely. However, if you're looking to make friends there, remember that it's larger than California but has 1/1000th of the population (2/3rds of which reside in Whitehorse). Oh, and the average temperature this time of year is -13 F. Here's a tourist site. Enjoy! (from World Wide Wood)
