Driving Day

We have been having so much fun taking our time that we have begun to fall a little behind schedule. We are not on a tight schedule by any means, but we do have to be in Campbellsville, KY on Saturday. So today, since we didn’t have any specific plans for Nebraska, we decided to have a driving day. No big deal, they are necessary from time to time.

Cabela’s World Headquarters, Sidney, NE

After visiting Cabela’s World Headquarters in Sidney, Nebraska, we set sail for the other side of the state. We passed corn field after corn field after golden, rolling corn field. There was some wheat thrown in for variety, as well as the occasional horse pasture and cattle graze land. The wind reminded us of Great Falls. It was steady enough to keep both of your hands on the wheel at all times, causing hand cramps from the death grip. It calmed down by the time we hit Eastern Nebraska.

Somehow we made it across the state, through a corner of Iowa, and into Missouri, which is where we sit tonight. Just for kicks, I thought I would share today’s stats with you, after sending a shout-out to Rob’s GPS, because I am quite certain that if it weren’t for her, we would most likely be in  Middlefart, Denmark right now.
