As much as we have traveled abroad, we have also traveled a lot in our own country. We have driven across country, all 3,000 miles, 6 times. We have visited pretty much every state except Alaska. We have lived in California, Wyoming, Mississippi, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and spend a lot of time in New Hampshire/Maine and usually once a year in Hawaii. We did a lot of this traveling early on so the only thing I was collecting then was magnets of which covered the face of our refrigerator. I eventually took them off when there was no more room. When in Arizona and visiting the Grand Canyon I found a glass globe of sand that showed the landscape there. In New Mexico when visiting friends who had moved there I purchased a handmade small vase from a Native American who was selling wares on the side of the road. When visiting my cousins in Montana I purchased a leather moose (but never saw one!).
