How will COVID-19 change visitation to Pinedale in 2020?

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.

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! We started it today, Wednesday, May 20th, chalking up four states: Wyoming (of course), Idaho, California, and Maine.
