Why Nevada Landmarks?

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.
