Pros/cons of license-spotting in Spokane

Summer is license plate-spotting season -- at least for those of us who were or still are geography nerds.

As Spokane is in a pretty remote location, we are not inundated with steady streams of license plates from all over. That could be viewed as a negative, I suppose.  But I prefer to think it just makes plate-spotting more fun here.

You don't see Maine or South Carolina every day. So when you do, well, it's more notable.

But it's not as if we never see vehicles from far away. Anyone who regularly spends time on Interstate 90 could tell you that.

So there's always a chance you might encounter a fairly exotic plate.

Not everyone is into this, of course. But if you were ever a little kid who enjoyed imagining what it would be like to live in some distant place, out-of-state plates never really lose their appeal.
