48 States and Counting!

We have been tracking the home states of Travel Goal Getter and All Fifty Club members on our Travel Goal Getter iPad App. It has been exciting to see the map fill in as more people have been able to join the club across the country....and the world!
We now have members from 3 continents (North America, Europe, Australia), 10 countries (Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, United Kingdom, United States), and 48 states. Our goal for 2014 is to have the member roll include travelers from all 50 states. Our search has begun for members from Mississippi or Hawaii. If you know a traveler from one of these states, please tell them about us!
