States Visited Map - Criteria?

OK - I see on another thread a wonderful discussion about counting and displaying the US Map with States visited. I would like to know the criteria you all use before counting a State - visited??? Drove through? Stopped and looked around?? Stayed at least one night???

We've driven through many States but only dropped anchor in a few...

Superchief has all 50 States, and in my mind, that is an amazing accomplishment. I started my map this morning and I've got years of catching up to do!

I'm believing it's your map. Do it your way.

To me there is no criteria, If a person drives or stays in a state with there RV they should put it down.

Personally I went with wherever I set up camp, one night or a week. That's just me, you can go with what feels good to you.

Used to do only places camped but now going to do the places we visit as well while with the rv, just not necessarily camping at.

For me I need to camp there before it counts as a visit.

You could put a small star on the ones you visit more than once.

Thanks all! Maybe the word criteria was a poor choice. I know ultimately, it's whatever I choose to do. I'm just very interested in what others use as their benchmark.

I actually found one map-creator that colors the States based on "passed-thru" to "might as well live there"...

Again, thanks all for your thoughts.

Maybe I should clarify my post. Most states I have stayed in been across the country 4 x's. I have stopped in every state to visit or camp that's listed. There is something to see in every state. I sailed 1/2 way around the world 15,000 blue water miles under my keal. We were gone for 5 years visited 17 Country's, that is dropping anchor. That is different because you have to get your passport stamped in and out. I count my map as states that I have visited or camped in. But an RV was always in tow.....Thing to us is just have fun and see what each state has to offer.....

I agree with "donanddona", it's your map, do it your way. As far as I know there are no map police! The goal is to see and travel around this great country, while you are able!! Craig
