If you had the time you might like to do what Amber Nolan is doing. She is coming to small airports like Lunken and bumming rides from pilots to see all 50 states. It's a concept she dubbed Jet-Hiking.
"I'm a travel writer and this year I wanted to take some time off and see the United States and blog about it and see our country and I thought it would be a unique and different way to do it if I went by air."
The 28 year old Nolan is attempting to visit all 50 states on a shoestring budget. Just last month she flew to her 12th state, Oregon.
