DE Title, Registration - Another visit to the DMV

One reason I took the car in for servicing yesterday was to make sure there were no issues for the state inspection today. I didn't think there would be any problems since I'd already checked the lights and wipers myself but one can never be too sure. So I got the inspection done this morning. Went to the DMV near my house again. It was about an hour wait in the line for the inspection but the inspection process itself didn't take very long and my car passed with no safety issues.

Armed with form MV-212 from the inspection station, I went to the DMV main building for title and registration. Here's the surprise: I was done with that in less than 10 minutes! When I got the ticket, my number was already the next one to be called. Only had to fill out the forms and pay the fees. Then the clerk handed over the new title, registration paper, and license plate. Went home and immediately went to work switching the plates on my car. Delaware only has a rear license plate so the front plate holder is now empty. I think I'll just save that in case I move to a two-plate state. Anyway, that was a significant step because changing the car title/registration was the last item in my move checklist. I'm finally done! (Well, except for the rest of the unpacking, that is. :) )

After that, I went to the bank to put the title in the safe deposit box. Then I went for the Grave Robbers geocache in the Christiana area. It's a pretty quick cache by an old cemetery next to a condo development. After a quick stop at the Christiana recycling center, it was time for Taco Tuesday at Don Pablos. I had 12 tacos this time, which is better than my previous record of 9. I think I could've had more but didn't want to get to the point where I would feel bloated. Have to save the real eating for Old Country Buffet. :)
