I hope in the future they don't decide to make a certain off-shore territory the 51st State!!

Like probably many of you, I wrestled with the problem as to where to place the map. Finally my DW and I decided to mount on the interior of the door. It is viewable when the door is open, which it generally is when we camp.

Home Depot had a perfect size sheet of Lexan (12" x 24"), which I placed the map on and then used four tiny screws to mount it. A picture is attached.

Just as with "How you count the states", I feel it is what you want as well as the placement also.

If I've touched foot within a State's borders, it goes on my map.

So what's your problem with Michigan? We are nice people and their is no better place to be in the summer than west Michigan. The west coast from South Haven to the bridge is a very enjoyable trip.

We used to only count ones we spent the night in the camper in. Now that we seasonal camp it would be a pretty boring map so we didn't get one for the new camper.

It shouldn't matter whether you camp in a state or pass through. Even just passing through you are seeing some of what the state has to offer. So you didn't camp there. How much more would you have seen if you just stopped to camp for the night and then moved on? If I had a map I would go with any state I passed through.
