    We hadn’t really driven a Semi west of Texas, Oklahoma, & Nebraska until the last month. over the last couple weeks We did a big loop through IA, IL, IN, TN, MS, LA, TX, NM, AZ, CA, OR, WA, ID, UT, WY, NE, KS, MO, and back to IA.

    what a gorgeous drive it was! I don’t believe I’d ever seen Mt Shasta before and it was stunning! Nebraska was …. easy driving but not much to see.


    So, as it stands right now, we have driven through 37 of the lower 48 states. These are still left on our to do list.
    North & West- NV, MT, CO, ND,
    North East- MA, CT, DE, NY, NJ, MD,
    Southern -FL

    My wife and I have teamed since 2016, have been in all the lower 48 and 1 trip to Quebec, was working with an Agent last summer to do Alaska but that fell through gonna try to grab one this summer have heard from other drivers it's absolutely breathtaking up there.

    Out west is incredible, especially this time of year. It's even prettier in the winter, but the whole snow and wind thing happens lol.

    Different strokes for different folks, but that's why I never really understood the appeal of companies advertising only east of the Mississippi or I-35 for OTR drivers

    I just did a count, and I too have driven professionally in 37 states. I still need all of New England, plus Oregon, Alaska, and Hawaii (which might be tricky!).

    I have driven in 47 states if you include personal car travel.

    How did you get to RI without going through CT or MA? I'm also wondering if you missed ME, VT, NH on the list since you haven't been through NY.

    I was only counting the real states. Lol, obviously I should’ve consulted a map o_O

    I've done 45 of the lower 48 plus 4 provinces in Canada. No plans to get to NH, VT, or ME, though I hear Maine is really pretty. These days I stay west. I'll take mountains and weather any day over the congestion and crazy horse paths out east.
