Visited U.S. States Felix Wong

Somewhere I read that the average American has only visited three states. While I suspect that statistic is incorrect since everyone I know has been to more than that, I wondered how many states I have been to. As of February 2013, my tally is 44 plus D.C.

Below is a detailed list. In my lifetime I want to visit all 50. Also going hand-in-hand with this is trying to run a marathon in every state.
