The John Shinnick 5 Year, 50 State (and D.C.) Pledge!

This set of travels appeared on the old JohnShinnick.com many years ago. I recently decided to get off my bee-hind and resurrect it much as it was before. Enjoy!

 

Recreated Feb. 20, 2021

Hey, this was fun!  For no good reason other than to get me out of the house, I decided to visit all 50 states (and the District of Columbia) in the first 5 years of retirement.  What a plan.  The only ground rule was that I have to do or see something in each besides just drive through. (So what the hell did I do in Mississippi? Read on!)

 

 

As if I need to tell anyone as smart as you, each "Click Here" button under a list of 6 or 7 state names will take you to the page with those states represented.  If they don't, boy will you be disappointed! (Please let me know so I can fix the broken link.)
