I’ve passed 6,000 bills with hits, which I suppose is a good milestone to pass. Unfortunately for my hit rate, I’ve entered over 70,000 bills, which puts me at 8.12%. I also have 860 counties between the fifty states and the District of Columbia. It seems like the counties are harder to get now, which is understandable.

I have every county in Florida south of Alachua County, which is where Gainesville is. Alachua has plenty of hits, but I need three of the neighboring counties: Bradford, Union and Gilchrist. That’s the kind of stuff that gets me. I have 21 hits in Alachua, but they can’t travel over to any one of those three counties and get a hit. I’m sure that I have at least one in each county. It’s just that someone has to look at one of my bills and get to a computer in that county.

Yes, I’ve thought of going to Gainesville, but it’s a college town. They have malls and an aquarium, I think, but there’s no real reason for me to go there. It’s not like Orlando, which has Disney World. Aside from which, I don’t know that I want to make that kind of drive just to get hits. If I had to go to Tallahassee or Pensacola, I might consider going that way and planning on having lunch there.

All things considered, 860 isn’t a bad number of counties. 57 Florida counties isn’t bad considering that I only need 10 more.
