Thanks for your comment. Although I can't find the map online (I am looking at it right now from Highpointers Club magazine) Maryland is included in the Northeast region along with West Virginia! Virginia is in the South Region, along with Texas! There are only 4 regions.
As long as we create a new section called "updates" or "blurbs". It doesn't belong in the main text. We should also mention that now over 200 people have reached all 50 State Highpoints. I will add that.
