It was just after lunch on September 30th the when the Amtrak train I was on entered into Louisiana marking the 50th state in the United States for me to visit.
As I have mentioned in the past once I got down to the final five states to visit a few years ago, I planned which would be the final state to visit. As the planning process started earlier this year for the final state, I thought about taking the train from the city I was born to the 50th state, thus connecting my first and final state.
I will provide a trip report of the City of New Orleans Amtrak experience in the near future, but for now I am just enjoying being able to say that I have been to all fifty states.
So now I have been to all of the states, the next task to conquer is getting to all 7 continents.
