Guestlist: United States

By T, compiled after we drove through 11 states.

United states I have yet to visit and the likelihood that I will:

Hawaii - Highly Likely
How can I become a world champion surfer without visiting Hawaii?

Idaho - Likely
Idaho intrigues me. The people are very quiet about their state. I think there's something great going on that they don't want us to know about. It can't just be about the fishing.

Indiana - Highly Likely
I will definitely attend the Indianapolis 500 at some point.

Michigan - Highly Unlikely
The only scenario I can envision is driving there and back from Chicago just to say I've done it.

Montana - Somewhat Likely
I think this will require a trip to Yellowstone during which we hit Montana and Idaho. Perhaps this is where I will buy a shack and begin working on my manifesto.

South Carolina - Likely
I can ignore the accents long enough to get in a few rounds of golf.

Utah - Unlikely
I'd like to see Monument Valley, but that's pretty much it. And, isn't most of that in Arizona? Besides, Mormons frighten and confuse me.

Vermont - Somewhat Likely
Despite their predilection for socialism, I could see us vacationing there. You know how I love to ski.

I love visiting Michigan! You should go, mainly because seeing Detroit will make you feel good about living in Memphis.

You should come to Michigan...the lakes here are actually quite pretty. Not that I'm biased, but it's MUCH better than Indiana! Detroit isn't as scary as they say.

The secret of Idaho is that it's actually lovely. I was very surprised.

Montana is gorgeous as well.
