Finally working on my trailer project after a year of collecting/research

Welp, in the spirit of always starting new projects, I've been working on a little side project for about a year and a half now.

And I've finally created the pages for them. Now to start writing the pages and compiling research into them...

Massive cleanup on my site after a 6 month hiatus

If you've looked at my site previously, you may have seen that this site is a disaster. Well, I'm working on overhauling this website, starting with massive cleanup.

So far, I've cleaned up this home page, such as removing the old articles from 2018 that nobody reads and splitting off the other blog posts into separate pages because it's becoming unmanageably large.

On my list is rewriting the home page and the about page, overhauling the passenger page and other pages that are dirty dumps of information, and adding images that have been missing since 2019.

But for now, that's about all the writing I have in me for the time being. Expect more updates to come soon...

Reflective Trailer Plates

I've noticed a rare, but significant variation within Wisconsin trailer plates for the last two years: some plates have been found to be reflective.

I've observed reflective trailer plates issued in 1995, 2002, 2003, and 2004. I'm estimating that the 2002 was an error plate, while the 2003 and 2004 natural plates were from leftover blanks given the run from 2003 to 2004, which likely was from late 2003 to early 2004. The 1995 run also has had multples found of it, and would have been around the time that the discolored sheeting was no longer used on light truck for hire plates.

So far I've noted these plates:

In other news I've noticed a variation with 1951 and 1954 cabin plates. Some are made of aluminum and some are made of steel. As if tracking the numbers of these rare plates wasn't hard enough...

I'm now in the DLPCC

It's been a while since I've written any articles. Since then I've gone to 2 license plate meets and became a member of the DLPCC.

Someone sponsored me for 4 years of membership (which is crazy to think about, thanks to whoever did that), and I got my DLPCC number a week ago or something.

I found out my number was 211. I noticed that the number looked familiar, so I looked at a license plate that I got last license plate meet, and sure enough it was numberd GB 211.

Of all the numbers I could have possibly gotten, I got a number from a plate I bought at the last meet I went to.

Now to get boards for license plate displays for the spring meet...
