I am tighter on what counts as a visit (have to actually leave the airport and do something that requires interacting with locals), but looser on what counts as a country.

I'm really looking forward to AK. But after this recent trip I'm realizing how much I like Wyoming. Probably a hard place to find a job, but it's an amazing place to visit.

We were there (different trip) on the longest day of the year, and it was so cool to be outside at 2 am and be able to read a book sitting on the deck with no lights on.
