Back in 2007, as a college freshman free from the chains of home, with a love of highways and a car that needed driving, I embarked to drive every mile of state highway in Washington. At that point, a monster was born. In 2009 I moved to Wyoming and clinched that system. In 2011 I moved to Arizona and clinched that system. In 2013, I moved to Montana and finally clinched the Idaho system in 2014. While doing all that, I managed to drive and photograph at least a little bit in most of these United States. I’m currently working on driving the Montana highway system. Montana is a bit of a daunting system, lots of unpaved secondaries over a massive state, but it’s a journey that I am enjoying taking.
I had looked at driving the Alberta, British Columbia, and Northwest Territories systems as well, but as I suspected, that has turned out to be more than I can chew. I’ve only been to Canada twice since I said that, and it’s kind of a hassle to get up there. I will probably still do the Northwest Territories at some point, because that’d be awesome and it’s not that much, but I’d be surprised if I ever drive the entire Alberta highway system. Once I finish up Montana, I will probably continue onto Utah as my state of focus.
I currently have a couple year backlog on getting things posted. I focus on getting Montana stuff up immediately, and then things go in reverse order by state, so if I am ever out of Montana stuff, perhaps I will finally start to post things from my 2012 trip to Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana and the many roadtrips I have taken since then.
