I took my summer vacation last month. I went to the great northwest.
Why? Because at my age I keep lists.
As in, states I have never been in. That would be (as of early last month) Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Oregon and Washington,
Alaska and Hawaii are hard to get to, so they await another day. But I put a big check mark on all of the lower 48 last month.
Oh, I also keep track of the baseball stadiums I have visited and I saw a game at Safeco Field (Mariners) in Seattle. That's an out-of-the-way-place for an east coaster like me, but I got 'er done, so now my bucket list of current major league parks I have not seen a major league baseball game in has been reduced to two (new Yankee Stadium and new Florida Marlins Stadium).
