But thanks a lot, having ground transportation lined up will make things a LOT easier!!
Late response here, but I'm assuming due to COVID you probably haven't gone on your cruise yet. So hopefully this is still applicable. I went on an Alaskan cruise in 2018 and it was quite possibly my favorite vacation ever.

-Tracy Arm Fjord is the most beautiful place I've ever seen (google it, it's amazing even in stock photos).
-Juneau was a super fun town. Highly recommend taking the gondola up the mountain and hiking your way back down to the cruise ship.
-Skagway was my only disc golf round of the trip. There's an object course available to play that is just a short/cheap bus ride away from the port. Skagway was the most touristy & least authentic of the stops, so I was glad I played DG rather than doing an official excursion.
-the national forest in Ketchikan is beautiful. Awesome, awesome hike. Only thing I'd do differently is to find a way to do it self-paced rather than joining a tour (we did an official excursion with my in-laws for this one, but usually we prefer to avoid the expensive cruiseline excursions).

33/50 and 2 provinces so far. Contemplating making the drive to knock one out this week...and there's a posssible Alaska adventure later this year.

Pretty much have every state that I need mapped out in one form or another...except New Mexico (and Hawaii). That's gonna be tough.

Pffft, New Mexico isn't tough. You just need to get sent there for work!

...Or were you talking about Hawaii?

I'm working on a plan for a New Mexico weekend trip in November. Fingers crossed!

Finally caught up to you with New Mexico and North Carolina to get up to 33/50!

When you get to New Mexico, Two Gray Hares DGC is in the middle of nowhere in the mountains. Amazing scenery up there! Bill and Sue Leslie are awesome hosts and they have played courses in all 50 states.

Sad news...probably getting Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri this weekend. LoL

Was going to fly to Albuquerque and drive through to OKC, but prices are way cheaper in January, so that's happening then.

Also, may get Nevada over the Xmas break...

Dammmit! Gotta plan another trip ASAP!

Everything left on my list is up north besides Hawaii and South Carolina, so probably going to wait for the summer to hit the road again.

You can easily knock out three of those with one trip. Find an excuse to go to LaCrosse, WI and your other two midwest states are in easy reach.
