Counting Counties: 836 visited, 100’s more to go

Counties I\'ve visited as of July 4th, 2008I was surfing the web late a few nights ago as I often do, looking for interesting tidbits, and stumbled on a U.S. map that showed all the counties of every state.  I was first amazed that any single image could contain such information in readable form, and then I thought it’d be neat to figure out how many of these counties I’d actually visited, and see that visually on the map.  The shrunk-down results are included here for you to see (click on the image for a larger version — the original version, not included here, is 5 times larger than this one and I can read the county names).

I think I’ll easily manage to visit all the National Parks well before I even come close to visiting all the counties in the United States.

So many counties, so little time.
