There are currently 3142 county and county equivalents (parishes in Louisiana, boroughs in Alaska and independent cities in Virginia). One item on my personal bucket list is to visit every single county. I have currently been to 2444 counties - about 78%.

This thread is to inform gas buddies about the US counties and provide a forum for others to comment on or to post about these counties.
