My 30 for 30

I thought about this the other day, and was partially inspired by @texasinafrica, and have decided that I would like to se the goal of traveling to 30 countries and 30 US states by the time I turn 30.  It is really rather simple.  I need to stay a night in a location for it to count or have made multiple trips to the place (ie. I have been to Delaware numerous times and not just driving through).  Airport layovers, no matter how long, do not count.  As it stands I have been to the following

US States (25 of 30)

  1. Maine
  2. Vermont
  3. New Hampshire
  4. New York
  5. Connecticut
  6. Rhode Island
  7. Massachusetts
  8. New Jersey
  9. Delaware
  10. Maryland
  11. Virginia
  12. North Carolina
  13. South Carolina
  14. Georgia
  15. Florida
  16. Utah
  17. Colorado
  18. Alaska
  19. Illinois
  20. Michigan
  21. Ohio
  22. Indiana
  23. California
  24. Washington - 2010
  25. Texas – 2010

Countries (11 of 30)

  1. United States (yea it counts)
  2. Canada
  3. Mexico

  5. England
  6. Switzerland
  7. Austria
  8. Kenya
  9. Uganda
  10. Rwanda

So, as far as states go I am pretty set.  Countries will require a bit of work.
