If you want to get technical, technically it's first use has not occurred until it is properly licensed, tags, and titled. Then, it's first use can commence......!

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals....

I think any chance of being successful in this depends mainly on which DMV office I go to and who I happen to get at the window. In other words...a crap shoot.

IMHO anyone who takes possession (and dominion or control) in Sumas can claim Nooksack County as the location of first use. But I can tell you county bureaucrats have ways they have "always" done things which always to don't comply with the law as written!
I think you meant Whatcom county
