I got mine from a junk yard here in town. They usually want a couple of dollars each but if you are buying 10 or so like I did you can dicker a bit on the price. No restrictions on getting plates here.

Stacie, I really like the idea of getting plates as you travel through different states. Each one would have a bit more meaning then. I tried to get as many different plates as I could but the choice was limited. I may have to expand my collection during my upcoming trips.

I have also found that a spring steel binder clip works great to connect the plates in a circle.

Stacie, there are a lot of Indiana plates out there because we are issued new ones every 3 or 4 years. I once gave about 20 of the to a young boy who wanted his ceiling to be covered with license plates. Now I only have enough for my heat shield for my galley table.

I know most antique stores in Indiana have a few of the older plates.

Good luck

Thanks for all of the suggestions!

It will be no hardship to check out some thrift/antique stores on the trip. If I don't find them there I'll go online and try to find them from the states I traveled through on Goodwill and Ebay.

Phooey wrote:In California it is apparently illegal to recycle/reuse license plates. I got a real lecture when I went to a pick and pull junkyard to see what I could come up with. So I decided to poke around on the internet. I scored a whole bundle of them off of Goodwill.com for just a few bucks. The site auctions stuff just like e-bay.

:thumbsup: :D


I just see it now. Cops rolling into the Dam Gathering just before dinner. Over the bullhorn - "Ok folks this is a bust. We know you have illegal plates around those ovens. We are going to have to confiscate all the Dutch Ovens and you are all going to jail." And just behind him a line of police with napkins tucked around their necks holding spoons and forks. :cry:

Caryn, the coppers will have us in cuffs right behind you too. Will they let us take our cooking to jail? :)

Looks like it will work well, excellent idea.

Remember to be careful with heat and galvanized metal. If it gets too hot, the galvanization will make TOXIC smoke.

Hmm...toxic smoke, not good.... :thinking: ....what if I heat it up really hot a couple of times before I use it ....would that 'burn' the bad stuff away??

Thanks, Corwin for the headsup! I'll go back to the alum flashing idea.

It takes quite a bit of heat. You will be okay if you use them for windbreak but keep them 3" - 4" away from the coals, more if the coals are really hot. The first sign of too much heat is a chalky white or yellow residue.
