Collecting American licence plates


Map of the United States with Arizona, Conneticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia highlighted

Among the pointlessly nerdy activities I persued in the US was the collection of licence plates. You people have so many more states than we do, so it was a bit of game to see how many we could spot in two weeks.

The map above shows what we saw. I’ll upload the photographic evidence alongside other trip images soon.
