Current GOAL


The Goal

My goal is to visit each of the 48 contiguous states at least once following some simple rules, then return home.

About This Item

The Rules

For it to count you must Blow And Go to a neighboring/bordering state.  For example, starting in Texas, you can take me to Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, or New Mexico.  If you jump over neighboring states, the state you land in will not count toward my goal, but the process of going to a neighboring state picks up at that location and continues normally.   Exception:  If all neighboring states have been visited then, and only then, such a jump will count.

It’s okay to repeat a state, but it doesn’t help me complete my goal, unless all neighboring states have been visited and repeating a state moves me closer to new opportunities.  This is an ambitious goal, so I’ll need lots of help.  If you can’t move me to another state try to move me closer to the border.

The Non-Rules

Though definitely not required, photographs along the way are encouraged.  Particularly pictures of state border signs like “Welcome To," "You are entering" or "You are leaving" type signs.   If I make it all the way and back to my owner he will send a dollar bill to everyone who took a border sign picture.  He says he’ll probably do it even if I get lost after getting half the states, but he wouldn’t promise.  He will keep a list of states I still need to visit right here.


The Record

Many thanks to chubba327 for adding New York to my travels

My last state that counted was New York

The next state can be: New Hampshire:

New Hampshire is a good next step, this may
be my last chance to reach Maine easily.

I have not yet visited the following states:  Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming

The Rest

I’m not a trade item, you don’t have to leave anything if you take me

Please don’t put me in a travel bug "hotel," "depot" or "resort" that requires you leave a bug if you take a bug.  Sometimes they're more like prisons than hotels -- I might have to stay there a long time until someone rescues me.

This is one of the coolest TB's that we have had.
Will try to keep it going on its way to NH. Muggle sister lives in NH so we will probably get the TB there.

Took it from my cache, it's been lounging there for wayyy too long. Besides, my TB Resort needs more guests. I don't want it to go out of business !
