Default Filling out mytriplogs.com map

Decided to tag some more states last week in my Miata. Can't do transcontinental riding anymore so I'm using it as a "4-wheeled motorcycle" to finish out my map of the lower 48.

In 2015 I did my remaining southeastern states. Last week I headed north and nailed the states of Iowa, North Dakota, Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana. Saw some pretty cool things along the way... went to the Ashfall Fossil Beds in Nebraska and crossed from the UP to lower Michigan on the Mackinac bridge. At the end of the bridge was Fort Michilimackinac, an old military installation with a heck of a lot of history behind it.

All that remain for me to hit are the small northeastern states of Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and the more substantial state of Maine. Once that is done, it will finish my lower 48 targets. Then it's on to Alaska.

Below is my SPOT tracking map:




... And here is what my lower 48 map looks like now (red = via motorcycle, orange = via Miata, gray = remaining to be tagged)
