Final State

The company that Mr. Lonniman works for just finished a new product. They wanted to promote it across the country. Mr. Lonniman was asked to travel by car to each of the 48 contiguous U.S. states to promote the product. He was told that he could visit each state in whatever order he chose, but the company wanted him to start in Delaware, at their headquarters.

They asked that he visit each state only once. He could not go back into a state he had already visited because this was the “Don’t Look Back” product tour. So, Mr. Lonniman sat down at his desk and began to plan his trip.

He realized immediately that it was going to be one long car trip. At that moment, his boss stopped by and said, “Hey, I’m going to join you when you reach your last state. I was born there and I’ve been looking for a reason to go back and visit. You can leave your rental car there, and I’ll fly you back in my private jet.”

Since Mr. Lonniman hadn’t planned his trip yet, how did his boss know which state was going to be Mr. Lonniman’s last state? And, which state would that be? Please tell the RiddleDude what state the boss would be waiting.
