Keep track according to whatever works for you; it is your challenge. I confuse easily and I thought making a list and filling in the blanks would make it easier for my addled brain to keep track. Happy travels and best wishes on reaching your goals!

I think 30 states is an awesome number for this challenge!

Do I have to list my states or can I just happen to "travel" to that state as I go?
