     Don't think there are any. I was going to say part of the stretch of counties between San Francisco & Pollock Pines, but then I remembered that Xahar has also been that way.

Indeed I have. Pretty country. I don't know whether I've been anywhere in the United States that nobody else has been to; I've been to some remote counties in eastern Idaho, but they're on the road from Salt Lake City to Yellowstone. Abroad, I don't think anyone else has been to Dhaka, though Lewis might have. Presumably others have been to Singapore; certainly others have been to Hong Kong and Bangkok.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Washington County, Texas

I've been to Brenham before.  Many times.  Including the Blue Bell factory...  Smiley  Not to mention Washington-on-the-Brazos.

Grimes County, Texas (maybe you've driven through, but have you stopped?)

Been there to look at possibly buying a piece of property.  Smiley

Looks like the Eastern Shore was covered a ways back, so I'll list a few places in Virginia:

Charles City County
Gloucester County
Isle of Wight County
Southampton County
Surry County
Sussex County

I'll also throw out Carroll County, Maryland, and Catawba County, North Carolina, since there's very little reason to go to either.

My family has a place in Gillespie County, TX - have to assume someone's been there and surrounding environs..  Let's try some weirder ones...

Union Parish, LA
Sabine Parish, LA
LaSalle Parish, LA (infamous)
(insert northern LA parish - and I don't mean driving through with these either)

Grant, NM
Catron, NM
Hidalgo, NM
(insert southern NM county - and I don't mean driving through either)

I've been to almost all counties in west Texas/Big Bend south and west of Midland/Odessa - let's try Culberson County and Brewster County (who's been to Big Bend). 

My east Texas list is pretty impressive too, but I haven't been everyplace.  Chambers County is a bit of an oddity.  How about Shelby County.  Once again, none of this is "driving through".

Have other people been to Northeastern California?  I grew up in Nevada County, but I've been everywhere within a two county radius of there, I think.

And international doesn't count folks!  I'm sure I've been to regions of Indonesia none of y'all have been to, as well as possibly the nation of Liechtenstein.

I actually spent part of my honeymoon in Liechtenstein.

I posted two IL counties before, that never got a hit from another poster, so since the thread is renewed I'll go again.

Stark, IL
Randolph, IL

Here's a few other other less traveled counties from the Midwest that I visited last year.

Henry, IA
Jefferson, IA
Van Buren, IA
Scotland, MO
Schuyler, MO
Adair, MO
Sullivan, MO
Grundy, MO

I've been to Tahoe. So Placer and El Dorado are out.

Cumberland Co., TN (unless memphis was there)

Been through on I-40 a million times. 40 to 81 is how I get to the east coast. Can't say I've ever done more than MAYBE get gas there.


How about Cherry County, Nebraska?

I've been through on US-83. That is one empty part of the country. Nothing but sand hills.

Someone needs to compile a master list of claims and then we can see how many of these there really are.

Has anyone been to Kalawao County, Hawaii? (I haven't Sad ) I find that place fascinating, though. Moreover, it seems like this county won't be around forever; when the people die off, it will most likely become part of Maui County.
