Charlie and Lucy. You are going to be pretty close to where I grew up when you cross US 63, and I have been on I 80 more times than I can count. When you get to Kearney, Nebraska, watch for a huge arch that spans the interstate. If you like history, going inside and seeing the displays is very interesting plus you see the traffic whizzing by underneath. Loren

Pretty cool Loren! We are currently near Des Moines. Are aiming for North Platte NE today. Will look for Kearney on the map and see where we are time wise! Thanks for the tip. We both like history!

Nebraska sightings

Charlie and Lucy.
In addition to counting campers, your assignment today is to count pickup trucks between Kearny and North Platte with coyote rifles hanging in the back window. If you don't see at least 10, you are not looking. If you are coming back the same way and camping, the Windmill State Park between Grand Island and Kearny is nice enough. It's just off the interstate but as flat as the country is, it's quiet, since nobody needs to use the Jake Brake. They just fly on by at about 80 mph. Good luck today, it will start to look like the west soon.

Good going, Charlie and Lucy! Wish we could have seen you in Iowa but we are still in Canada bringing our 21' back. Saw more great places and are at a beautiful provincial park, Buffalo Pound near Moose Jaw.

Have a great trip! Will look for your photos.

Just lost a whole paragraph on my iPhone. Will try again!!
We've been hotelling it for several reasons, mostly because I 'm not a tenter! Lol!!
Just made reservations tonite in Ogallala.
Little side line...we've been counting campers of all kinds: Sunday-95, yesterday-204, today we hit 90 around noon and the 90th was finally a FG... A little Casita! We were thrilled because we finally saw a FG!!
Thanks for all your good wishes... It's been a great trip so far. Truck is comfortable and that is important!
Happy camping everyone!!

Lucy

Day 5. Started out of Coalville UT almost by Salt Lake City.
We made a pit stop at the Bonneville Salt Flats and are continuing on. So far Tuesday we saw the most TTs 212. In that bunch we saw 1 casita and one other FG trailer. Might have been a Boler or Trillium. They were going too fast in the other side. We saw 187 yesterday and saw one Casita! So far today we have seen 1 Casita. Not one Escape yet! But we know we will at some point!
