Presentation on Counting U.S. Counties Highlights Spring 2023 Sarasota Chapter Gathering

The Southwest Florida (Sarasota) Chapter’s spring meeting was the best attended to date. TCC member Jeff Francis presented on county counting. That is not a typo! Jeff is visiting all the counties in the United States. He is a member of the Extra Miler Club, an organization for county counting. Their motto is “the shortest distance between two points is no fun.”

In May Jeff began a month-long trip to Alaska to visit each of the Boroughs of that state, which involves a lot of logistical hurdles. After visiting Alaska, Jeff plans to celebrate this summer in Bourbon County, Kentucky, as he joins a very small group of people who have visited all 3144 counties and equivalent jurisdictions in the Untied States.
