Two good catches for September, one at the beginning of the month (Oklahoma) and one at the end (Montana). After scanning my updated map, I realized I had colored Montana in but not added it to the list. That’s now been fixed, but I’m too lazy to scan it again.
One afternoon toward the end of the month I was driving from Oak Bluffs to Vineyard Haven. On a hunch I turned left into the hospital parking lot, where exotic out-of-state plates often hang out thanks in part to the travel nurses and doctors who augment the staff during the busy season. I parked, strolled around — and there it was: Montana.
The busy season is passing, but I intend to play my hunches from now to the end of the year.
