All 50 States! Part One
So I’ve only got two left to hit, New Hampshire and Maine. And I am going to them in a couple weeks to play some music and explore. Since I am so close to my goal, I have decided to go back and think about what I did in each state. It started off by wanting to list the highlight of each state. That happened for the most part I guess. But sometimes I listed the most memorable thing that happened to me there. For example, Delaware.
So here is the first installment of three of the things I have done and seen in the 50 states:
Alabama- Hike to Walls of Jericho, the Grand Canyon of the South.
Alaska- 5 week hitchhiking trip throughout state. Also living in my tent for a month on a cliff overlooking Skagway, AK.
Arizona- Hiking down into Grand Canyon. Hiking back out was not quite as fun.
Arkansas- A meal on the banks of the Mississippi.
California- Hmmm… So many… Camping on some cliffs over looking the Pacific in northern CA.
Colorado- Rocky Mountain National Park. My introduction to the Rockies.
Connecticut- Walked around Stamford.
Delaware- Car broke down on 95 North and I spent the night in Newark, DE at a crappy hotel.
Florida- camping on the keys.
Georgia- Start of Appalachian Trail
Hawaii- Beach, volcanoes, pineapples, crater, snorkeling, etc…
Idaho- Hepatitis outbreak in Coeur D’Alene. Camping in Sawtooth National Forest for the birth of the ungulate.
Illinois- Glenallen Hill hitting the game winning grand slam at Wrigley. Go Cubs! Also, being at game 6 of NLCS aka the Bartman game. That’s obviously not a highlight. It’s a BIG lowlight. But it sure was memorable. unfortunately.
Indiana- I’ve been stuck in Indiana multiple times needing car repairs. Weird.
Iowa- Camping in a beautiful state park. can’t recall teh name right now. But I was shocked how beautiful Iowa is.
Kansas- Played a gig in Wichita. It was weird. And cool.
Kentucky- Playing a radio show in Lexington. So much fun.
