Oregon, Alaska, British Columbia, and Idaho in that order. I see Idaho and BC plates more east of the cascades though, than I do west, as well as more Montana plates. But occasionally I see plates from elsewhere and I doubt there's a state plate I haven't seen at least once. I've even seen Hawaiian plates here. As for Canadian plates besides BC I have also seen Alberta, Ontario, Yukon, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan.

IL. Some week-ends it seems there are more IL plates than MI plates around here. A close second place is IN, with Iowa making a good showing as well.

Well it kinda makes sense. When I think of a real road trip, I think of driving from NYC to LA, not the other way around lol.

I tend to see a lot of Wisconsin, Indiana, and Michigan license plates but also an unusually large amount of Texas license plates.
