Our rule is simple, we sleep in the state with the camper we claim the state. There was a bit of discussion but that is the rule we arrived at. We are now planning trips based on what states to sleep in next, be careful what you measure.

This summer it is Wyoming, Utah, Idaho and Oklahoma in addition to multiple weekend stays in our home state and neighboring states.

This kind of reminds me of a business trip I was on. Had to fly from Ontario, CA to LAX for a connection to Denver. About a 30 minute flight and on my "Frequent Flyer Card" I was credited with the minimum 'award' of 500 miles.

Was sitting next to a guy who was just going to LA but had started his day early that morning in Georgia. He was taking every "Puddle Jumper" plane/route he could find from small town to small town on his way. Wasn't doing anything in these towns, he just wanted to maximize his frequent flyer points/miles. Every one of those short hops gave him the 500 mile minimum.

To each their own

It's all up to the person's doing it. Technically some of these are called "Visited States maps" so you decide what entails a visit

DARN!


Since you canít drive your camper to Hawaii I think this is a good exception! Stick that State!

Hello,
Me and my husband had the same discussion once... and we decided that we had to spend at least 2 nights in the state to get the sticker.

As usual, wife is right.

Overnight should be enough.

We marked ours for every state the wheels touched because in some sense of the matter we are visiting that state just by driving through it, unless of course everyone is sleeping as well as the driver. There is only ONE exception to that rule, traveling to Florida through Georgia since a tiny portion goes through Alabama, we don't count that state.

First we put the stickers on the truck then traded it in. Started over with stickers on the rear windows of the Windjammer. One sticker per campground or state. Guess I will have to keep those big windows if we ever trade it in! Ha!!

Did you pay any state taxes/fees? Fuel, sales tax, lodging/camping, etc? If you did you should be able to apply the sticker. You paid for it.

Teasing. The purist would say you have to do something more.

You have to spend the night so if you arrived one evening and left the next morning, and presumably slept, then you get to count it!

I see all the good discussions and inputs in this posting BUT .

Silly question, where is the survey? OP says survey.
You know it ask for your opinion or answer.
Did you place you state sticker up for which of the following?

Stay the night.

Stop while passing through.

Just riding through the state.

Stay at least 3 days.

If you overnight in the State you put on the sticker. Adding a specific number of nights is arbitrary.

If you read the entire thread, you'll see that overnighting is also arbitrary. If it's a States Visited map (the name of one of the websites that produces such a map), all you have to do is visit the state to add it to States Visited map.

We had the map/sticker discussion decades ago. We agreed to the 'No map, No Stickers' rule

See, now thats the way I interpreted the maps as well, states visited. The package did not say states slept in, which in a way is a bit, ah, er. NM.

Well, Since I have to put out a slide to spend the night, I add that state to the map.
