    Places I Have Visited Already

    In my last post I speculated on some of the different places my wife and I may move to (Big Decision, Where to Move to in the Future?).

While most of my time traveling has been in the United States, I have also seen two other countries. Many of the places on the list are part of the National Park system. States that I have only drove through are left off the list.…
