In addition to accomplishing at least one visit to all 50 US states, I am a Data Scientist / Supply Chain consultant and have recently taken up backpacking and mountain hiking. I summited by first two “14’ers” in October of 2021, and also backpacked through the Grand Canyon.
Of the 50 states, North Dakota was the last one on my list, and I made it there in October of 2021. I have also been to Puerto Rico and Washington, DC, and if you include those two in the basket, I have been to 46 of the 52 (50 states + PR & DC) more than once – many of them several times. I have also been to the 6 inhabited continents.
