April License Plate Report

April’s catch: Kansas, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee.

Finally Ohio shows up! And Kentucky always looks lonely on the map until I can color in neighbor Tennessee to the south. Still need Delaware and Georgia to finish off the East Coast. Maybe May will complete that green band across the nation’s midsection: Utah and Missouri would be nice.

If you think I’ve gone off my rocker, check out “My License Plate Fetish.” And if you see North Dakota on a Vineyard road, call me. I’m not kidding. I’m in the book.

Here’s what the map looked like when April turned into May:

    I’ve been driving around the island with De plates for at least seven years now. I guess our paths haven’t crossed. I will be back in June for a few weeks.


    • I’ve got a friend with Delaware in the family. I often snag one of them. I’ll be watching for you in June! Delaware is almost always my last northeast state. What’s nice is that they’re recognizable — they don’t seem to be proliferating special plates of infinite variety. Often I think I’ve spotted something new and wonderful (like North Dakota!) but it turns out to be a new version of Pennsylvania. 😦
