Where I stayed
Red Barn Campground
It seems that whenever we start our journey in the morning there is tension between us and it hasn't been very pleasant. Maybe it's nerves, who knows - but this MUST end! Each of us has our jobs to do to get ready to move this thing and by now, we each know what that job is. It is good to spot check each other and that's fine, but we also need to believe in the other persons ability to get the job done
We went through towns called: Wahoo, Freemont, Winnebago and Oakland. One town had a population of 41! Freemont is a college town and quite cute. Most have the railroad as the main industry and big grain elevators. We also crossed the Platt River which is extremely low right about now. The fields are very dry and they must be praying for a little rain. Many large farms and lots of plowed fields - not as many animals this time - although we did see two really big pens with lots and lots of cows. It's surprising that for as many farms as we see, we almost never see anyone working them.
We were on the Louis and Clark Trail today and went through two Indian Reservation Lands; one the Blackhawk's and the other the Dakota's. I was hoping to see someone on horseback in full regalia, but I guess I must have watched too many westerns when I was a kid.
Stopped for lunch and a fill up for the RV and they have little casinos all over the place in these tiny little buildings
Well I bought my power ball ticket for a slice of the $600++ Million dollars so we'll see how that goes...I already know...but it's fun to dream BIG once in a while!
Hope you are all doing well.
