Nebraska Scenery – Road Trip 2015 Day 14

We woke up in North Platte, Nebraska at the Walmart

We did our usual stop for gas and coffee before leaving town… And we decided Nebraskans must not be big coffee drinkers, because we had quite a time finding a good cup of coffee! 

We jumped on I80, but only for a very short while before we decided that wasn’t much fun, and got off to take Rte 30 East.

Country road traffic

We were even able to stop for a car wash. And my PB was able to get both the Jeep and the front of Pe@rl in, which was great because they were both covered in bugs! My job was to keep putting in quarters.

While at the car wash, a train went by across the street…

This combine was amazing! He quite literally took up 2 lanes (that’s a full breakdown lane…). It was quite interesting getting around him…

Lunch time!
Lunch time!

The whole trip we had fun with “how many strange places can we fit the T@b”… 

Apparently you can go to Sonic, and fit quite nicely! (However almost NO gluten free options… I had fries and a shake, not what I consider a balanced meal)

Just one of many...
Just one of many…

We stayed on Rte 30 the rest of the way across Nebraska, and picked up I80 again north of Omaha. 

This ended up being one of our favorite driving days. We expected it to be rather boring, all flat and fields for miles. But actually the farmland scenery and the small towns along the Platte River made for pretty driving. And the visibility is amazing, you can see for miles!! Which made for a rather relaxing drive, even with a trailer. No one suddenly did anything. Someone turning? You see them, watch them turn, and almost never needed to actually slow up…

We stayed on I80 across Iowa, and stopped for the night at the Walmart in Coralville, Iowa.
