I can't find the document I need to change the trailer plate, so I think I'm going to keep the California plate for a while. The Permanent Trailer plate costs me $10 for 5 years, and you can't beat that. When I get home, I'll get a copy of the registration. Ralph, who used to be in that line of work, thinks a sharp LEO will notice that the states don't match on the trailer and the coach. Ralph called it "reasonable suspicion", not probable cause. I defer to the expert on this matter. He added that having mismatched state plates like this is a sign of a stolen vehicle.
The best part is that I overpaid Pennington County and am getting a refund check for $42. Getting the new plates takes me one step closer to implementing The Plan.
It was pretty empty yesterday, but people sure came in today. All they had left was unimproved camp spaces, ones without water or electricity. The campground even has laundry, which is something you don't see often at a publicly owned campground.
