Jason Watson is on a mission -- a marker mission. He's out to find and photograph all of Virginia's 2,100 highway historical markers. He's tracked down more than 1,300 so far. The computer expert and history buff is recording the markers exact location with a GPS satellite navigation device and posting pictures of them on his Web site, He tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper his hobby has taken him to a lot of Virginia's great places. But Watson says it drives his wife crazy, because they're always stopping at another marker.
