Quest Objectives

What Qualifies (?)

To complete a state-province border, you just need to cross it (either direction works) on foot, bridge, tunnel, animal, vehicle, or self-propelled watercraft. Basically, in any way except a flying over it in a plane or via motorized boat.

Bonus Objective

Some questers may include Yukon Territory in this quest, which results in a bonus objective.

There are three border crossings that can only be made via boat, so they are not generally included in the quest, but may be considered bonus objectives.

  • Ohio-Ontario
  • Ontario-Pennsylvania
  • Maine-Nova Scotia
