License Plates 2009

It's been a while, five years to be exact, since there has been any mention of the license plate game in these pages. While this year's season is over, it was a notable one worth capturing.

This was a long season for the license plate game, since we had an early Memorial Day and a late Labor Day. Fortunately, I did not need the entire time to complete the task. As an individual, I saw all 50 license plates this year! Unfortunately, the official competition is a team sport, and my final two plates were not witnessed by any other participants. I saw Alabama while on a business trip in Texas, and I saw Alaska while with a friend on the way back to work after lunch. Ironically, both of these plates were viewed with the same friend.

It was nice this year to have Dylan able to spell words. He was able to confirm the presence of Idaho and Hawaii, and I even got picture evidence of Hawaii outside of the YMCA in Naperville. That was a success early in the season. Perhaps next year he will be able to identify license plates while driving! Before long, we'll have internal Schmit-family competition, instead of merely competition with the New-York-based Schmits.
