After 7 hours, we made it to Cornhuskerland! Here's a picture of Maggie and her college buddy, JoAnn, with whom we will be staying tonight.

The ride was easy, no bad weather. I will have to say that it seemed like we were in Missouri all day! That state needs an Interstate highway that runs diagonally from the Southeast to the Northwest. Driving straight across from St. Louis to Kansas City, then up to Nebraska City is too much Missouri to see in one day!

Listening to an exciting day of World Cup matches made it easier, though. Argentina's star, Messi, came through in extra time with a goal to beat Iran 1-0. The Scottish announcer screamed: "The Magician waved his wand and broke the hearts of the Iranians!" The second match was just as good listening to Ghana fight the mighty Germans to a 2-2 draw.

Whew, now we're heading out to dinner...

More later!
