Join me in my adventures as I Visit
Every City in Washington
State...and beyond. This web site chronicles my
travels over the highways and byways of our nationís 42nd State. Most people spend their money and time traveling to exotic and historical places
around the world, but never take the time to visit their own backyard. I have always
wanted to travel throughout
and I thought why not record my adventures at the same time.
The original idea for this project came to me in 1986 on a road trip with my
family to the Washington coast. I was amazed by how many small towns we drove through
that I'd never heard of before. Fifteen years later, as a 2001 New Year's resolution, I
set a goal for myself to visit every city in the state before December 2005; which I was able to
accomplish four months early. During the original project, as I was
already driving every where, I decided to
include riding every ferry boat and driving over every mountain pass as separate
side projects. Then realizing that I had completed the project, I longed to see
more. So I created Phase Two and a Phase Three of the project;
all of which you can see
by clicking the See Where I've Been
sign at the top of the list on the left.
General questions that you might have about the project can be answered on
the Project FAQs page. Please feel free to send me a message with comments, suggestions, or

1841 essay entitled Self-Reliance, Ralph Waldo Emerson
"I have no churlish objection to the circumnavigation
of the globe, for the purposes
of study, and benevolence, so
that the man is first domesticated, or does not go abroad
with the hope
of finding somewhat greater than he knows."
Due to other travels I have
planned for this year (e.g.
Europe, New York, Utah, Las
Vegas, Disneyland), I won't be
travel as much for my project
than I have in the past.
However, I am planning on a few
trips in July and August.
