Sooner than Later in Oklahoma

leave a comment »

This Thursday, our plane landed in the Sooner State, Oklahoma. The Dallas-bound plane had to divert from the flight plan when a storm reached DFW sooner than the plane did. The plane remained in a holding pattern for some time but with little fuel remaining, it slid back to land at the Oklahoma City. With that unexpected landing, Oklahoma became the 24th American state I had set foot in.

Until this Thursday, I never thought I would go there – kind of like Nebraska, Kansas, South Dakota, North Dakota, Indiana, Iowa, Mississippi, Missouri and Alabama. I wonder if anyone except for their residents travel to these places. Some of these states are huge but I reckon very little scope for tourism or business-related travel.

But then, it is perhaps foolhardy to create lists for travel like ‘touch all continents’, ‘all states of India’, ‘all states of the USA’. Yet, list-making is what many of us do to make sense of disorganized information. Lists are easy to consume and easy to action.

So, here is a list of the US states that I have touched so far:

New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Maine, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Atlanta, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Illinois, California, Texas, Utah, Colorado…and now, Oklahoma.

Of course, District of Columbia too.
