I want to take a little trip somewhere – Appetizer State Capitals



I want to take a little trip somewhere – Appetizer State Capitals

Warm Up

  • A mosey to the unknow trail did some stretching, and mosey to the rock pile to get a rock. Then a short rifle carry back to the US Map.

The Thang

16 Pax and 2.0 with 1 new FNG “Hide Away”

Tour of the States:

The goal was to name all 50 state capitals, if you got the correct capital you did a count of 10 of the exercise, if the group got the capital wrong, it was a count of 15.  Can the group make it through all 50 states, well we did it!

From the song:  Tour The Sates by Renald Francoeur.

I want to take a little trip somewhere, yeah
First, I’m gonna see Nashville, Tennessee
Then Madison, Wisconsin, is where I gotta be, yeah
Then I’ll take a plane
Well, actually, I’m afraid to fly, so I think I’ll take the train
Let’s go! (Go, go)

Going to Trenton, New Jersey, Frankfurt, Kentucky
Maybe take a trip to Jackson, Mississippi
Let’s see what they can show me in Jefferson City, Missouri
Santa Fe, New Mexico; Denver, Colorado
Boise, Idaho, I love it every time that I go

In 1492, he sailed the ocean blue
But next week I’ll see Columbus in Ohio
Grab a little sunshine in Tallahassee, Florida
Take a bite of a peach in Atlanta, Georgia
I’ve never been to Carson City, in Nevada, or Lincoln, Nebraska
You can catch me in Phoenix, Arizona, or Sacramento, California, yeah
St. Paul, Minnesota, maybe, Juneau, Alaska, yeah

I want to take a little trip somewhere, yeah
Boston, Massachusetts; Concord, New Hampshire
Going to Vermont for Montpelier
Montgomery, Alabama, then Washington D.C.
To see the nation’s capital

Aloha to Honolulu, Hawaii
Des Moines, Iowa, so peaceful to me
Going to Springfield, Illinois, to build a little house on a prairie
In Little Rock, Arkansas, I love what I saw
Going back to Dover, Delaware, ’cause I want more

Indianapolis, Indiana, and Hartford, Connecticut, need an encore
Smelling pine trees in Augusta, Maine
I like Topeka, Kansas, I’m glad that I came
But I’ve never been to Salt Lake City
In the Utah, or Richmond, Virginia
Gonna see Bismarck, North Dakota
And Charleston, West Virginia, yeah
Annapolis, Maryland, maybe Lansing, Michigan, yeah

Helena, Montana; Columbia, South Carolina
Got to go to Pierre, South Dakota, yeah, follow if you wanna
I’ll be eating a banana in Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Schedule that on my planner
Friends say I gotta come sooner to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
So I guess I’m gonna
But first I’m going to Cheyenne, Wyoming
Then party in Raleigh, North Carolina, yeah

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, can’t think of a rhyme for Pennsylvania
So I’m skipping to Salem, Oregon, then Austin, Texas
And then maybe Albany, New York, for breakfast
Providence, Rhode Island, was a blast
And, Olympia, Washington, was just the best-est
