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. While doing all that, I managed to drive and photograph at least a little bit in every continental US state west of the Mississippi River but North Dakota and Minnesota. In 2013, I will be moving to Montana, with the intent to clinch the entire highway systems in Montana, Idaho, Alberta, British Columbia, and the Northwest Territories by the end of 2017. To accomplish this, I will have to overcome many miles of dirt road, thousands of acres of prairie, more poutine than any American should ever eat, and have the privilege of seeing some of the most amazing scenery in the world.

While the focus of this site is and will continue to be the photographing and uploading of highway signs along every mile of segment of highway I can possibly drive, it is my hope that this space will also be used to write travel essays of sorts, attempting to channel my inner cultural geographer and speak of my non-road sign related experiences as I explore these regions. We’ll see how that goes. Check out the blog tab at the top to see that as it comes.

The below space will serve as an upload queue- the things you see there are still to be uploaded, and may show up on this site live at any time between next week and next year, time permitting.
