States visited vs Just passed Through

How does everyone count a state as being visited? Does it count if you simply passed through it? How about layover at a Walmart on your way to some place else? What criteria do you use to have officially "visited" a state?

I've spent at least some amount of time in just about every state east of the Mississippi River but alot of those were just a pass through on my way someplace else. Others have been quick day trips lasting only a couple of hours.

If I stop at a rest area in that state, then the sticker goes on my map. We usually end up staying one night on the return trip.

Ours is sleep at least one night, but everyone has their own rules.

Same and agree. Your map, your rules. There is no consistent standard.

The sticky state map police require an overnight and one meal in order for their sticker to be legally affixed to your camper.
