"Well, I've never been to Spain..."

"...but I've been to Pensacola." Okay, I'm done butchering songs by Three Dog Night. This post at Vodkapundit got me to thinking about where I've been and the traveling I've done. I still have some places on the list, believe me.


CONUSstan:
Maine ("Well they say that I was born there/But I really don't remember-" Okay, okay. I'll stop now.)
New Hampshire
Massachusetts
Rhode Island
Connecticut
New York
New Jersey
Pennsylvania
Delaware
Maryland
D.C.
Virginia
West Virginia
North Carolina (I hear it's changed a lot since the Sixties. ^_^)
South Carolina
Georgia
Florida
Ohio
Indiana
Illinois
Kentucky
Wisconsin
Minnesota
North Dakota
South Dakota
Nebraska
Iowa
Kansas
Missouri
Texas
New Mexico (I was only three at the time. Sorry, relativos)
California

Overseas:
Alaska (Yeah, I know it's America, but it's still overseas. Bite me.)
Canada (all provinces except Labrador, New Brunswick and PEI)
Dominican Republic
France
Germany
Luxembourg
The Netherlands

Gone but not forgotten:
East Germany (I was drunk and didn't get off the subway in time. Oops.)

Places I want to visit:
The remaining states in the US, Puerto Rico, and Guam
Australia
Britain
Cuba (when it's free)
Estonia
Finland
Ireland
Israel
Japan (especially the beaches of Kyushu)
Latvia
Lithuania
Mexico
Philippines
Poland
Scotland
South Korea (before they get too crazy xenophobic)
Spain
Switzerland
Taiwan
Turkey
Vatican City



I'm doing this partially to illustrate a point: Southerners, and red state denizens in general, are a lot more aware of how things are in Europe and the rest of the world because we've actually been there and seen them. This is a result of the large overseas military deployments, which have sent hundreds of thousands of Southerners and others to Asia, Europe and Central America along with their dependents...and those who didn't go themselves often had family or neighbors who did. Something to think about the next time somebody remarks on what an ignorant, insular bunch of yokels Bush voters are.

It's not by Three Dog Night - Hoyt Axton wrote it for them. He wrote a lot of their songs actually. And generally performed them better (Hoyt's Greeback Dollar is definitive).

No kidding? Wow. I honestly didn't know that - the only version I've ever heard is the one by Three Dog Night, and that was a long time ago...back when you could hear Motown on Top 40 stations.
