Well, I am already failing at my first goal, because Mom definitely drove about 70 percent of the way. I mean, I couldn’t pry the wheel out of her hands. That woman is a road warrior.
But don’t worry, I’ll wear her down eventually.
Today was our first day of driving and I thought it would be a rather boring day. We didn’t plan on seeing anything in the Oklahoma/Kansas/Nebraska area, but the drive was beautiful. Throughout the drive, especially in northern Kansas and Nebraska, we would see homesteads dotting the landscape, old barns, white churches, etc. I just loved it!
I haven’t had the best experiences in Nebraska (or New-braska, as my grandfather calls it), but I decided to give the state another chance. So far it is treating me well.
I was obsessed with Laura Ingalls Wilder (of Little House on the Prairie fame–the books, NOT the TV series) when I was little, so I love all the history that must be connected with this land. And there is more history to be had tomorrow! Mt. Rushmore and another surprize. Here is a video clip for a clue!
