Hawaii 5-0!

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true existence of my presence in every state before the time of my thirtieth year: "I hold this truth to be self-evident, that all states are visited equal."

My dream has been fulfilled! I returned from Hawaii, my 50th state, last Thursday!
We ate shave ice, snorkeled, toured sets from Lost and Jurassic Park, attended a swap meet, swam in the ocean waves, ate Dole pineapples from the plantation, swam in a waterfall, got stuck and slept in the airport for 2 nights, and the list goes on.

The question is: What should my new goal be to hit before I am 30? I accomplished this goal with over a year to spare. I figure I should come up with something else spectacular albeit a little less grandeur to accomplish!

Hahah, the Jurassic Park picture takes on a whole new meaning now. Awesome.

Congratulations on making it to them all! I got 3 new ones this summer (Washington, Montana, Florida), but still have some big sections on the eastern half of the country to fill in.

Isn't it obvious? Your next goal should be to go sky-diving!

I think your next visiting goal should include: IguaƧu Falls, the Amazon, Rio de Janeiro & Barcelona, Spain.
