New License Plate (Still no WV)

Many months ago, Mason and I were obsessively scouring Saint Paul for license plates from around the country (and the world.) We've seen all but one of the fifty states (plus Washington, D.C.) and many of the Canadian provinces. We still haven't seen West Virginia, but a couple of our friends have spotted the elusive plate, so we know that Mason has conjured one into the area.

Today, however, we saw a Consul plate parked outside of the governor's mansion on Summit. It had the call letters: "PK," which wikipedia informs us stands for Norway.

Cool, huh?

Very cool. I've popped over from Tempest Knight's blog. Have you seen an old Nova Scotia, Canada plate? They used to say 'Canada's Ocean Playground'. I miss that.

We've seen Nova Scotia, but not the old one. I'm sad we missed that. Probably my favorite weird saying is: "Stars Fall on Alabama"

Thanks for stopping over here from Knight's blog! Hope to see you again.

Well I live in Maryland, so I see WV plates all the time. Heck, I used to go to college at WVU. West-by-god-Virginia is a beautiful, naturally wild state--just....watch out for the locals, if you catch my drift. ;)

I was telling my sweetie about the license plate grail as we merged onto I-5 here in Eugene last week and were passed by--you guessed it--West Virginia plates. Wish I could send them your way...

But the coolest license plate I've ever seen was on an old RV this last fall: Cherokee Nation. With arabic numerals, but letters in Sequoia's alphabet.

Very cool, Frank. We KNOW a WV plate is here, because a friend of a friend's brother has moved to the Twin Cities from WV. Even so, we still having spotted it live.
