Something Other Than Tacoma - Finally!
It's been a while since I've added entries, but I finally have some new ones to report. As I was getting ready to move away from Seattle, I made a list of places that I had always meant to get to but never had. And I started knocking those off the list. Many of those excursions provided the basis for these new entries.
- Geek out at the Living Computers: Museum + Labs south of downtown Seattle
- Enjoy a frosty root beer at Issaquah's Triple XXX Root Beer Drive-in
- Check out the massive collection of aircraft at the Museum of Flight in Tukwila
- Pick up something kitschy at Archie McPhee's

Road Trip Summaries and Photos
As I travel, I often write up trip summaries with photos that I share with family and friends. I've started adding some of those to the site. Here's the latest:
In August 2017 I took a 9-day road trip around the Great Basin region, visiting sites in eastern California, northern Nevada, southeastern Oregon and eastern Oregon that I had dropped from a number of past trips due to time constraints (and last year's forest fire in one case). Such "Leftovers" trips can have quirky itineraries, but they can be just as interesting to me as any "normal" road trip that I plan.
You can find more of these on my Road Trips page.
Are You New to MarkHitsTheRoad.com?
Welcome to MarkHitsTheRoad.com, where I share photos, information and recommendations about great destinations and sights I've discovered along the way in my travels across the U.S., Canada and a number of other countries.
Major cities, national parks, historic sites, scenic views, hikes along secluded trails, and out of the way places are all here. And when I travel I'll hit the brakes to get pictures of interesting buildings, old business icons, classic theatres, funny signs and anything that claims to be the biggest-smallest-oldest-oddest of its kind - an ecclectic combination of whatever catches my eye. I hope you enjoy them, too.
Website Construction Update
I have neglected the website for awhile as I focused on an interstate move followed by my retirement, but I have finally added a number of new entries, and I have more on the way.
