In this post I did a meme that marks off every state I've visited. Prompted by chris_walsh asking when I was in Washington and Oregon, I've decided to say when I've been to each of those states (at least most recently):

California: many times, most recently in March of this year when I went to WonderCon in San Francisco
Colorado: when I was four, we drove from New York to Denver to visit the Infomancer's family
Connecticut: many times, most recently, sadly, for Robbie Greenberger's funeral last August
Delaware: driven through many many times on trips to the Baltimore-Washington corridor
Florida: many times, most recently in November 2003 for the Traveling Fete in Fort Lauderdale
Georgia: many times, most recently in September of last year for Dragon*Con
