A Travellerspoint blog

Off into the Great Unknown

A new place for a continuing journey

For about the last 10 years, I've been gradually working on a long-term goal of stopping in every county seat in the United States and documenting my travels by mailing a postcard home from each town and city I visit. Some folks have been following my journey (on another forum) that is closing down. I plan to continue blogging about my travels here.

First a map, showing how much I've already completed.
Everything in the darker blue represents counties where I have been to the county seat and documented my visit with a postcard. The green counties are the ones where I visited the county seat, but haven't documented that visit. Most of these were from travels prior to 2010 when I began this project. The lighter blue (cyan) is for counties I have visited by did not make it to the county seat. Enough about the map for now.

I will provide a bit more backstory later, but this should help orient folks who followed my previous blog (you know who you are). I hope many of you will continue the virtual ride-along when I get back on the road, hopefully over the summer of 2020. Over the next couple months, look for some history, maybe a bit of explanation of this odd hobby, and a probably few pictures along the way. That should be enough for now.

Let's get out and see the world.

Thanks for the shout out!
I'm glad I took one last peek at the Marriott Insiders forum and saw your post. I look forward to continue reading about your travels through every last corner of the USA and all the unusual things yet to be discovered.

This looks good, are you going to archive your earlier blogs here? I’m archiving some but mine are more disparate, yours is definitely a blog on a journey of a hobby!

I'm happy to follow your county collecting here!
