Got Your Travel On?

Hopefully some of you Librarians will be adding Washington to your states visited list next week, when you attend PLA here in Seattle. If you get a kick out of noting the places you have visited here is a fun site where you can make a quick and easy map highlighting the either the states or countries you have been in. Link

I know some of my former BMGF PACT pals might really enjoy this activity what with all our former work travel. A visit to Aaron would knock out one or two of those pesky NE states, though Iíve decided Iíll probably to never go to Arkansas (apologies to any AR Librarians out there;). If you think you are a real globe trotter, doing the world travel map is quite humbling.

You'd be missing out. Arkansas has a lot going for it (as a place to visit, not live). The people are friendly and the Ozarks are beautiful. Fayetteville is a pretty hip town that has a strange magnetic pull for quality live music. Way better than Louisville in that regard.

How did you manage to get to New Hampshire, but not Maine or Vermont? You've missed two of the three prettiest states east of the Mississippi (NH being the other.) If you come in June or July, I can give you a place to crash. Any time after that, and I may have already left for Budapest.

But Greg, you have Elliott! http://www.libraryman.com/elliott.htm
Actually, I guess you don't any more as I heard they have recently called it quits. Isn't My Morning Jacket from Louisville too? On second thought, maybe AK isn't so bad. You gotta admit he map looks good with that gaping AK shaped hole in the middle of it.

Aaron, I went to Rhode Island for Spring Break once back in college (a friends was from there, plus NYC and Boston and such). We did some wacky driving though I guess, eh? Visiting you in Maine is definielty on my short to do list. However, I may very likely be gone through June (at least) with my next work gig. Besides, it would be more of an adventure in the dead of winter, wouldn't it? Budapest! Freakin' cool, man!
