Small United States and Canada map

We're looking for a map to track our travels in the U.S. and Canada. The type that has stickers to add as you visit certain places. We have found several online but they are all too big. Looking for something smaller. Has anyone seen something like this anywhere. Thanks.

How big is too big? This one's only 13" x 17":

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01MT...cker+map&psc=1

But, if you're looking for something really small, they sell them at http://twowheelvinyl.com. They're designed for motorcycles, and only 6.5" x 4".

And if you want to keep track on line, there are a couple of sites that let you put together a "States Visited" map. This one includes Canada.

I bought ours direct from Brothers Manufacturing Personalized license plates

It's stuck to a thin sheet of plastic that I cut down from a cheap poster frame. I took off the top trim piece on the fridge door and slipped it in over the wood grain panel.

I've seen that size Jim, but the OP was looking for a tiny one.

States Visited

Define "visited".
Does driving through a state, maybe stopping for gas and a meal, mean you have "visited" that state? Does stopping in a state to see an attraction meet the definition? Does staying "overnight" in a state count as a visit?
What criteria does one have for adding the state sticker because they "visited" that state?
I consider a "visit" as taking the time to have visited a state attraction an having immersed ones self in the local atmosphere.

My criteria is, my vehicle's tires or my feet touched ground within that state's borders.

Using that criteria, I've visited all 50 states and 47 foreign countries. And don't rain on my parade. I'm a world traveler. I insist.

Visiting

I'm sure everyone has a little different definition and since we are not into legalities here (yet) if you say you visited a state, it's good enough for me. When I talk with fellow Iowans from small towns or areas not known as tourist attractions I seem to have the best reaction when I say "I was drunk in your town once" and go on to describe the tavern the best I can remember. It gets more smiles than "I was in your library once." If your vehicle has much cruising range at all, it's easily possible to cross many states at Interstate speeds and not stop for any reason. So, as my Dad always said "live and let live". And "to each his own"
I say " Where's Hank Snow when you need him?"

That's a cool one I wish I'd known about it when we had our motorcycle tenet trailer.

My wife wanted to put a bigger map on the ceiling. I think the idea came from pictures someone posted here on the forum. We settled on a smaller one on the fridge.

I came across this discussion of when you were allowed to add a state while searching for our map.
Lower 48 maps

I'd say "tiny" & "visited" are in the eye of the beholder, so to speak.

In our case I'd say our map shows where the camper has been.

Ron, I think I can see where you need to go on your next trip. There's some awesome camping available in Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, the Smokies, etc. That's a pretty big hole to fill in.

Once while on a business trip from Baltimore to Austin, my group changed planes in Detroit (go figure). While waiting for my next flight I admired the new-looking terminal.

Me: I've never been to Detroit.
Coworker: You still haven't. You're in Detroit's airport.
Me: Okay, well I've never been to Detroit's airport.

I was happy and he wasn't going to ruin it for me.

That's right Mike. You were definitely in Detroit. I'll vouch for you.

By the way, nice terminal eh? I particularly like the indoor train.

Yeah, it was neat. The terminal looked brand-new. I was trying to remember when this was, and I can't-- turns out I made several biz trips to Texas. It was sometime in the 2005 - 2010 timeframe.

We usually move so little distance that we always have been in a campground on the way through a place. We covered the country pre-trailer but not that many places are on our trailer maps. We did cover a good portion of Canada though!
