    Visiting all 50 states

    I have thought about doing this for a while, and tomorrow I'm starting it. I will fly to all 50 state capitals (or a nearby airport) and take a picture in front of every state capitol building

    Starting tomorrow, I'm going to Bismarck, ND

    If anyone on here live in a capital city with limited public transportation, it'd be awesome to meet up and get a ride to the capitol I'd buy you a beer

    Give me a shout when you get to the M's. The airport is about 10 miles and the Capitol is about the same from the airport.

    Let me know if you are going to hit Montgomery on a weekend. No beer, we both need to be armed and clear headed. Ok, you need to be clear headed.

    Sounds fun. If you go to Juneau, make sure you check out the Red Dog Saloon. They've got a helluva Bison burger...

    Just FYI, I'vebeen told that there's a nudist camp on a lake somewhere around Austin. Maybe you can rent a helicopter and guide while you're there

    Unfortunately we're 4 or 5 hours away.

    This reminds me of why I dropped out of my post-grad Texas History class and never went back - That ditz wanted us to photgraph ourselves in front of 75 historical markers around Texas.

    Excellent. Montgomery is one of those I looked at without a good transit system between the airport and capitol

    I've decided simply visiting all 50 is easy, so I'm adding more of a challenge. I'm gonna do them all by May, topping off the adventure with a photo in front of the National Capitol in DC during Police Week

    Sacramento will be an interesting one, seeing as there is no way I can fly there and back in one day...I thought of flying to Sacramento, go downtown, then taking Amtrak to Emeryville and fly back from SFO
