Also a lot less obvious than sitting in a car with a pen and sheet of paper.

By the way you need 51 since the District Of Columbia also issues plates. Very rare but we spotted it last April for maybe only the second time.

Very sad I know but I also have a master spread sheet recording every visit Never got all 51 in one holiday though.

Nobody would play this last year Hopefully this years lot will be more fun!

Counting them off the wall at Manny's is considered cheating as well - although a respected Dibber did own up to doing that.


Mick
It's not a bad hobby for a 75 and 78yr old either I will raise you two D.C's seen this Feb. for one Hawaii

Can you drive via Idaho and the Dakotas please. They are fairly rare.

I did actually drive a California plate when we picked up in Boston a few years ago. That's about as distant you can get for the 48 contiguous states.

Love this game, have got far too excited when I have seen an Alaska, Hawaii or one of the Dakotas

Have never seen all of them on one trip, we did come very close when we visited the Smoky Mountains and Orlando in one trip

As Greek Granny now knows I do keep a record.

Didn't start it until May 2006 so records of 21 holidays. Best was 49 in Feb 2017 missing Hawaii and, oddly, New Mexico. Rarest over the years are Hawaii 2, DC 5, North Dakota 7 and Alaska & Montana both 8.

Same here!
When we were in one of the car parks in Death Valley this February I got ridiculously excited to spot Alaska 😂
