That's all I can think of, but I'm sure I forgot some. I didn't count anything I spent less than an hour in.

I've been to South Dakota a number of times. The badlands are spectacular. I've been to Mount Rushmore a couple of times. I've been to Crazy Horse a couple times, and I highly recommend it to anyone. The story of how it was started by one Polish guy blasting away rocks all by himself is pretty amazing. In addition, I've taken a trip to Watertown to visit friends each of the last two winters. It's cold.

I've driven through North Dakota once on my way to Montana, but I don't recall anything worth mentioning.

Well then, I think that settles that... North Dakota definitely is the most obscure state in all of the US.

Going to have to update the old "Bumfuck, Idaho" expression!

More than a few places on that list suggest to me that Uncle Sam was probably paying the bill for some of those visits.

What year were you in Iraq?

Naw, if you want to go international, that's "Timbuktu" (which is near Chad/Niger in the Sahara desert).

Besides, "Bumfuck, Idaho" rolls of the tongue much better than "Bumfuck, Egypt" does! Probably someone from Idaho tried to fool you.

Thanks for the geography lesson! And, we'll just chalk the "Bumfuck, Idaho" deal to you being Canadian.

Yeah, there were a few there that Uncle Sam paid for.

I was in Iraq from December 04 to October 05

I've been to Ochopee, Florida, home of the smallest post office in the U.S. Talk about obscure... And I've been to Spuds, Florida. Anybody want to take a wild guess what crop they grow there?

That's got to be one of the most obscure places in USA - no one ever goes there it seems!

(my apologies to KSigMason, but I honestly was going to add Idaho to that list of most obscure states that no one ever goes to, but I figured I couldn't put it on the list if one of our members hails from there!)
I thought every US citizen had been to Mt. Rushmore.

And yes, I've been to both South Dakota and Idaho.
