September License Plate Report

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.

    Montana. That is a pretty cool (rather amazing) discovery. And, keep following your hunches! Thanks, Susanna.

    LOL… what she said. You’ve got me looking for plates now when I visit the island. We had a wonderful visit in mid July – beautiful weather and not too crazy crowded. South Beach was pristine, and for the better part of a morning we had the place almost to ourselves! Hard to believe…


  3. They never leave the Dakotas…are they happy? Or trapped in last year’s snow drift?
