I am a mother, grandmother, technical writer, writing teacher, friend, and many other things. I love to travel, and plan to hit all 50 states by the time I turn 55 (that gives me three more years). I still need: Hawaii, Alaska, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Mississippi (it’s the only state east of the Mississippi that I haven’t seen). I had planned to visit several during 2020, but the pandemic got in the way. I managed a safe road trip with my cousin to Nebraska and South Dakota, and may do something similar to hit Mississippi early in 2021. I’m most looking forward to an Alaskan cruise when it’s safe, and of course Hawaii. Yellowstone with friends will help me grab those three states.
