"A good guide is essential for the marker hunter and the best one I've found is Nevada-Landmarks by Paul Sebesta of Carson City. When I say Sebesta's site is good, I mean extensive. You won't find another single source for more information about Nevada's history."
"I find that your website is the best of both worlds, a dose of information that is fun and educational! I'm learning so much about our state all without boring myself to sleep with a textbook or encyclopedia."
This is really special. Thank you for taking on such an important, overlooked task and then sharing it so others may enjoy! We love Nevada and its history. Thank you for your contributions!

Our quest began in the spring of 2007--my insane campaign to personally record and conquer every state historical marker in our chosen home of Nevada. I wanted to prove that the history of the Silver State is indeed alive and well in a world of constant change and growing suburbia. The website began as a mere catalogue to store the information about the landmarks and any other interesting tidbits about the state.
We've accumulated a painstaking eighty thousand miles and gone through four sets of tires along with a new front windshield on our beloved truck Sage. I've gone days without a sit down meal or comfortable bed, just to take the long way home and sleep under the stars, visible from almost anywhere in this part of the country. Sage and her occupants chose to partake in this long and rough journey (both in the car and in front of the computer) not as a torment, but as a testament to the beauty of this Silver State from corner to corner. This is Nevada, our home. However, we were unaware just how many of our fellow Nevadans might have the same wanderlust...
