    This is a travel game I've played since I was a kid, that my kids still enjoy even as teenagers. The rules are pretty simple, though 'taking turns' in this environment might be tricky. I let my kids use an atlas, but we should be able to go from memory. I'll start with the name of a place, and the next person has to name a place that starts with the last letter of the previous place. No repeats allowed.

    Canada.

    having learned from Rae's "The List" (when's that picnic anyway?), I alphabetized the locations that have been used.

    Each player should add their place-name to the list, so that we can keep track of what's already been used.

    Here comes mine .............. Oregon
