All 50?

Andy Ihnatko wondered whether he could name all 50 United States from memory. He came up with 46.

I'm not sure if I could name all 50, starting from scratch, but I quiclkly recognized the four that he'd missed. (They're all states I've slept in.)

ADDENDUM: In another post Andy weighs in on what it takes to "count" a state:

Do keep in mind that in this endeavour, merely passing through or sleeping in a state won't do; feet must be planted on the native soil and I need to overnight it.
