Today I realized what a strange and unique place I have chosen as my current hometown.
Show Low, Arizona is about as far off the beaten path as it gets. You're not coming through here on your way to someplace else. If you're here, it's because you either planned it that way, or you're terribly lost.
Despite that fact, there are a HECK of a lot of people coming here from all over the country. I have evidence!!!
Today on my near daily trip to the WalMart SuperCenter I noticed a peculiar thing.
On my walk from the store back to my car, just walking up one row of the parking lot, I saw cars with license plates from the following states...
Then driving back home I saw more out of state plates from....
I've decided to create a map called Out of State License Plates I've Seen In Show Low
I won't count all the ones I've seen before, which include several Mexican estados and a few Canadian provinces. I'll start fresh today. Even though I've already seen a billion Hawaii and Alaska plates here and thought, why? How?
Here is the map:
