State Clinches - Various Categories

The "what counts as a state clinch" stuff going on in another thread inspired this post. Basically, how many states have you been to if you go by each the various "rules." First I started off with the typical criteria you'd see brought up in one of those debates, then I added a bunch of transportation related stuff for the hell of it. Feel free to add any other categories you want.

I'm looking forward to picking these apart and finding bizarre combinations, like a state only visited by airport but spent the night in, or a moving boat being a clinch motivated border crossing.  :)

The rest is obvious.
Supporter of the construction of several running gags, including I-366 with a speed limit of 85 mph (137 km/h) and the Hypotenuse.

Please note that I may mention "invalid" FM channels, i.e. ending in an even number or down to 87.5. These are valid in Europe.

I like the categories froggie used.

Been in, including visits where you never left the vehicle or landed plane: 33 plus DC (ME, NH, VT, MA, RI, CT, NY, NJ, PA, DE, MD, WV, VA, NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, MS, LA, TN, OH, MI, MN, IL, TX, AR, CO, WY, ID, AK, HI, UT); 7 Canadian provinces (NL, NS, PE, NB, QC, ON, BC)
Set foot in, including airport only visits: 33 plus DC (same as above); 7 Canadian provinces (same as above)
Set foot in, excluding airport only visits: 32 plus DC (subtract Utah; I was in that state for all of about 15 minutes connecting at SLC); 7 Canadian provinces (same as above)
Set foot in, excluding clinch motivated border crossings with less than a mile of penetration: 33 plus DC (I'll count Utah because my presence was mandated by airline routing); 7 Canadian provinces (same as above)
Spent the night in: 27; DC not included (from list above, delete RI, DE, MD, MS, and AR, plus obviously UT); 7 Canadian provinces (same as above)
Spent more than one night in a row in: 26, DC not included (same as "spent the night in" except delete CT); 7 Canadian provinces (same as above)
Driven a vehicle in: 23 plus DC (from original list, delete VT, RI, MI, MN, IL, TX, AR, ID, and AK, plus obviously UT); 3 Canadian provinces (NS, QC, ON)
Driven my own vehicle in: 20 plus DC (rode with parents in VT, RI, MI, TX, and AR; rode with a friend in ID, he was driving a rental; rode only in cabs or buses, including hotel shuttles, in MN, IL, and AK); 3 Canadian provinces (NS, QC, ON)
Driven a rental car in: I believe 5 (PA, FL, CO, WY, HI) Edited to say make that six. I forgot about a football trip to TN. No Canadian provinces.
Ridden a plane in (landing or taking off only): 17 (FL, GA, NC, VA, MD, PA, NJ, NY, MA, OH, IL, MN, ID, CO, TX, AK, HI)–we also rode a floatplane in Alaska; one Canadian province (BC)
Ridden a helicopter in:  2 (AK and HI); no Canadian provinces
Ridden a train in:  Excluding mass transit, 12 plus DC (FL, GA, SC, NC, VA, MD, DE, PA, NJ, NY, CO, and AK) and one Canadian province (ON). Counting mass transit adds three more states (MA, OH, IL) and another Canadian province (QC). Thankfully, riding Amtrak's Auto Train to and from Florida, and the Miami Metrorail on a football trip some years back, means I don't have to decide whether to count the Disney World Monorail.
Ridden a moving boat in: 11 plus DC (ME, NY, NJ, PA, DE, MD, VA, NC, AL, IL, AK); 7 Canadian provinces (NL, NS, PE, NB, QC, ON all involved ferries, although PE also a kayak; BC via a cruise ship)
Been on a boat in:  13 plus DC (same as immediately above plus MA and LA); 7 Canadian provinces (same as above)
Ridden a roller coaster in:  I believe 5 (GA, VA, MD, PA, and NY); no Canadian provinces
Walked or biked across the border of: I can think of two plus DC (VA and MD). Edited: Make that four. We pulled off at the Wyoming welcome sign to take pictures and so walked across the CO—WY state line. No Canadian provinces.
