States License Plate Survey - 2020
Typically we have trouble finding Delaware, Hawaii and Rhode Island - let's see if we find them this year! (Have Delaware and Hawaii, looking for RI)
We began our "50 State License Plate Survey" in 2002 and continued it for eight years. It started as a fun way to show how many people come visit, or pass through, our little town each summer. As time went on, we realized we pretty much get almost every state in the Union by summer's end. We stopped the survey in 2010. Now, ten years later, the world has been hit with the terrible coronavirus pandemic. Wyoming is just now slowly easing out from all the restrictions, hoping everyone takes extreme care in their travels and health habits to not spread the virus anew as everyone tiptoes into reopening. We decided to bring back the 50 State License Plate Survey and see how quickly the map fills in this year.
In year's past, we started our survey on Memorial Day weekend at the end of May. Later, we bumped it up to the beginning of the year in order to give ourselves more chance to find Hawaii, Delaware and Rhode Island. This year we are starting the survey on May 20th, for no particular reason.
For any viewers who want to make sure we count you and your unique vehicle, you can stage a photo as "proof" you were here. Take a picture of your vehicle and plate with one of our recognizable buildings in the background (put in something with a date on it that shows it was from this year, like the latest local newspaper.)
This is not at all a scientific study, but is just for fun, so watch our map and see how quickly we find all the states this summer!
If you are curious about one of our earlier surveys, here is a link to the one we did in 2009.
