Fifty – A Family Vacation

Scrapbooks.

Old pictures and tickets of things that I did as a child. Family vacations in the summer, and the games we would play to pass the time on the long drive out to wherever we were going.

Fifty – A Family Vacation (@ Scrawlers)

Minnesota (first)

Iowa, Michigan, Dakotas, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Kansas (nearby)

California, Texas, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Illinois (well populated)

Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Arkansas (Southerners travel)

Indiana, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Kentucky (big enough)

Kansas, Arizona, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma (close enough)

Heading west, Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, Washington (easy)

Conversely, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts (rare treats)

Hawaii (Mount Rushmore, a long drive from Honolulu)

Throw in Alaska, two Carolinas, two Virginias; only one remains.

In a parking lot unremarkable to anyone else, a license plate declares ironically, “Delaware, The First State”.

Fifty!
