The ongoing legend & travel logs of Kacee Mann

Kacee Mann's color-coded map of states she's traveled to recently

A semester hasn't gone by over the last few years, when I wasn't telling my students some story of accomplishment concerning Kacee (Aldridge) Mann. "You should've seen her thorough responses to Frederick Douglass back in 2008. She hadn't even started college yet." Or, "She had all kinds of sly jokes. In fact, she wasn't a person; she was a signifying machine." All the Kacee stories have turned her into a kind of legend. 

And then, there was the travel log she produced concerning her activities on one of our school trips to New York City. I recently asked Kacee to give me an update on the travels she's taken with her husband, Martel, over the last few years. Here's what she provided:
