Suck It, NC
I just received word that one of the great travesties regarding the Appalachian Trail is being addressed. Am I talking about invasive species? No. Shelter creep? No. Encroaching development? Wind farms disrupting mountain views? No, No.
I’m talking about THIS:
Appalachian Trail License Plate
What is wrong with that picture? It’s a beautiful, gorgeous Appalachian Trail license plate… but it is only available in North Carolina. North Carolina with its measley 88 miles. What about Virginia and our whopping 550 miles?!?! We home more Appalachain Trail miles than any other state. Where’s our pretty license plate?!?!
Welp, the Appalachian Trail Conference is working on it! It sounds like they will need 349 pre-paid applications for the plate (That’s 350 minus the “I’m-so-there” email I just sent along). Their effort is just getting started. Needlesstosay, I will watch with great interest as it unfolds.
And as I learn more, I’ll post
propaganda details here.
