Back to KC

This morning was clean up day. Since we will put the rig into storage, when we get back to KC, we clean up at the last camp site.

Most of the stuff that will go back into the house was piled in the corner, and into the Toyota. Remember we have a disagreeable neighbor, that will call the cops in a drop of a hat. So we need to strike quick and head on out.

Nebraska's crops are beautiful. Corn was tall and ears looked to be filled beyond the end, if that's possible. Beans could have been taller, but for Nebraska, and non irrigated ground, they were really quite good too.

We opted to take old hwy 34 right thru downtown Lincoln. This shortcuts I-80, and heads for I29 at Nebraska City. The two lane drive thru the country was very comforting. Crops, farm places and small towns. The GPS selected 34, but I think the better route would have been Nebraska 2. The drive in Lincoln would have been shorter, and some of it is 4 lane.

We ate lunch at a Wendy's next to the interstate where Neb 2, joins it. There is a Sap Bros' truck stop there, and it was swamped with cars and trucks. We spent about a half hour in Iowa, as you cross back into Missouri several miles South of there.

Our plan to quickly empty the rig worked like a charm, and it was gone from out front of the house in under two hours. I'll have to go get it and bring it back during the day, next week. When all the neighbors go to work, I can get the pressure washer out and give it the onceover.

So this adventure is over for another little while, but we will be headed off to the Lake of the Ozarks later in the week, so stay tuned for a different adventure!
