As before, a non-sanctioned list maintained by yours truely.

Continuous "Counties" (or a reasonable facsimile thereof to include Parishes, Districts and Independant Cities) that have been hit AND which share a border. Each user determines what they consider a border.

Handy place to check to see if counties connect, just zoom to where you want to look and compare county borders.

There are no prizes, only those who post participate will be summerized and it will be pretty obvious who will have the most, least, average and percent of the whole.

Glob Summary


Darth Slurpee - 750 places
Tony - 289 places
ELECTRIC RED - 281 places
dctim - 161 places
Kalisiin - 200 places 60 places
Jack - 29 places
cylon - 22 places
FURBjr - 9 places

OK, here's my CURRENT Home Glob (am moving to NC later this year)
PA - 47 Counties (Erie in PA doesn't connect...)
NJ - 21 Counties (BINGO!!)
NY - 41 Counties (I have two small areas that don't connect, also)
CT - 5 Counties
VT - 5 counties
MA - 9 Counties
NH - 4 Counties
ME - 4 Counties (I have two other Maine Counties that don't hook)
OH - 11 Counties (I have ten others that don't hook)
WV - 6 Counties (three other Counties don't hook)
DE - 3 Counties (BINGO!!)
MD - 17 Counties (Garrett DOES barely hook up in PA)
DC - 1 District (LOL)
VA - 21 Counties (Goochland BARELY touches Chesterfield) (I have 6 VA Counties that don't hook)

Total = 195 Counties over 13 States plus DC

Currently, my NEW Home Glob has
Ten Counties, all in NC - unless I end up in Franklin or Durham Counties, which I have yet to hit.

Side notes:
Sussex, VA and Southampton, VA plus Northampton, NC...would hook my old home to my new home.  There are other possible routes, but three Counties is the shortest route, and the area in question is Southern VA and Northern NC)

I have two Florida Globs that don't hook to anything, but significant enough to mention: one has 6 and the other has 14 Counties.

Furb...glad to see you participate, but your posting IS a little complicated.

The only reason I mentioned any glob other than my current home glob is because I am actually in the process of moving, thus my home county, and my home glob....is going to change.

When the move is final, on October 1 of this year....y home glob is going to come WAY down from it's current 198 places....at least until I manage to hook up my old glob with my new glob, lol.

It's okay with me if you keep your biggest glob for purposes of this thread. I'm sure you will get them connected eventually anyway.

No, tim.  Home Glob is HOME GLOB.
And my home is changing.  And that's the way it is.

When I get to North Carolina, my home glob is going to be much smaller to start with.

The day I get that one county that links up the old with the new will be the day I go up like a rocket.

I don't care if others want to use their largest glob,that is certainly cool with me...but for me, "home glob" means HOME glob.

If I end up in Franklin County, NC, I might end up starting off with a ZERO home glob, lol.

The likely Counties for my new home will be
Franklin, Nash, Johnston, Wake, Wilson, Durham, Orange, Chatham, Lee, Harnett, Greene, or Edgecombe Counties in NC.  Just not sure quite where we are going to end up just yet.

Franklin, Durham, Orange, Chatham, Lee, Harnett and Greene are all Counties I don't yet have in NC.

If I end up in one of the others I named, though, I'll be starting with an 11-County Home Glob.  As of this post, anyway.

Yes - Please update your own first posts (and totals) in this thread in addition to adding a new post.

I think I have everyone up-to-date, but if I don't let me know.
