License to Travel

Just a quick post, but kind of an interesting one.  Back from the honeymoon, where my lovely wife and I traveled to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  We stayed in a condo for a week, then traveled up NC 12 to Kitty Hawk and crossed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel (turns out I get really claustrophobic in that tunnel, which is odd given I don't recall having problems with the Eisenhower Tunnel).  We then had about 30 hours to kill before we had to be in Raleigh, so Laura decided spur-of-the moment that we needed to go to DC.  We got there around 5:30 (rush hour, AAH!), went into the Smithsonian Institute of Natural Science, and saw the White House, Washington Monument, and WWII Memorial before leaving that same evening.  As much of our vacation involved driving, we decided to keep track of license plates starting from when we left the airport and culminating when we returned to the airport.  It was fascinating to see how many states we got!  Here is our list in no particular order (*=we were in that state):
