"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Sunday 06/26/11

Got out of the campground around 9 AM this morning.  Really hated to leave such a pretty spot.  We made our way on into Nebraska and stopped at the Cabela's home store in Sidney.  It was sort of disappointing.  We had thought it would be huge like Bass Pro in Springville, MO, but it wasn't.  I know it was smaller than Bass Pro in Denham Springs. 
We purchased gasoline and made our way back to the Interstate.  Found ourselves in North Platte, Nebraska about 3 PM, due to the loss of an hour, so called it a day.  We're in a nice park.  The only downside is it's between I-80 and the "worlds largest train yard".  Yep, that's one of the area's claims to fame.  Others include a couple of Buffalo Bill Cody sites as he spent some time here through the years, and the place where the North Platte and South Platte rivers join. 
No pictures from today.   Not much to see but corn, wheat, and grasslands.  Hope to make Northwestern Missouri tomorrow.
Here's a few more from yesterday.

And some Aspen for someone special.......
