Puzzler

Mike wanted to start a new WAKA kickball division in his home state of Delaware. He decided that he would bring ideas from divisions around the country back and make the best run division ever. For his new division research, he planned to travel by car to each of the 48 contiguous U.S. states to watch kickball games, meet players, and go to after parties.

He planned to visit each state only once. He decided he would not go back into a state he had already visited.

He realized immediately that it was going to be one long car trip. At that moment, his friend called 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 we can take my parents' boat back."

Since Mike hadn't planned his trip yet, how did his friend know which state was going to be his last state? And, which state would that be?

Congrats to last month's winner
