What rhymes with banana?

You guessed it, Montana!  Team Debbie has found 49 of 50 state license plates since Memorial Day.  Will I actually find all 50 states before the 4th of July?  It's only happened one other time in the 20+ years we've been playing.  One more to go...Rhode Island.


"Team Cange is still stuck on Delaware…AARRGGHH!!"
Team Gallina, "...Rhode Island, Hawaii and Nevada for me."
Team Loretta,  "We still need Wyoming, Vermont, Rhode Island, Oregon (C'MON), New Hampshire & Hawaii!!!!!"
Team Barbara is keeping pretty quiet about her progress.
Team Parkinson, has 43 plates.

Mele Kalikimaka!

Yep, it's true!  I saw Hawaii this morning.  Happy Father's Day to me!  The really interesting thing was that it was parked next to a van with an Alaska license plate (already had Alaska).  It's June 16th and Team Debbie only has three more license plate to go:  North Dakota, Montana, and Rhode Island.  Gotta admit I'm feeling pretty confident that this is a 50 state summer.  

Anyone else willing to share their progress?  Helloooooo?

A Detante on Vermont!

Wahoo!  Look what Gracie and I found this morning!   What a relief!  Down to these slick six:

Delaware - worried
Hawaii - semi-worried
Montana - not worried
North Dakota - not worried
Oregon - really?
Rhode Island - worried

How about you?

Authentic Find!

Wow!  Typically, we find Maine plates on semi trucks, but today, we actually spotted an authentic plate, lobsters and all, on a car!  Not worth any more points, but pretty impressive, nonetheless. 

On Friday, Team Cange said:

Crickets, crickets, crickets…

Any updates from anyone?

See attached that I nabbed tonight parked on the street in Escondido.  One of the fearsome fivesome for me.  Cha-ching!!

Awesome find, Team Cange!  Don't know how many plates you have, though. 
Okay, time for the big reveal!  Drum roll.........Team Debbie has 38 plates! 

Team Parkinson inexplicably says they are too busy hemming prom dresses...what?  Who is too busy to play the License Plate Game?  I'm kind of surprised Team Parkinson didn't petition to postpone the game until all prom dresses are hemmed!  I guess this means they have found zero plates????

Team Loretta had 30 plates on May 28th.

Team FastBuicks has found 35% of the plates as of May 29th.

The other teams have yet to report their numbers.  Hmmmm.  A little worried about the silence or as Team Cange said,  "crickets, crickets, crickets."

How many plates does your teams have?  Inquiring minds want to know!

Happy hunting and safe driving!
