Leaving the cowboy state of Wyoming and our gracious hosts, Wild Horse John and saginaw Sue this morning, we are headed for Sidney, Nebraska as our first stop.
Sidney is the home to the very first Cabela’s store – it’s always a good time waster going into a Cabela’s!
Not only one of the best fishing, hunting and outdoor stores but awesome displays of taxidermy adorn each one. Bit like a museum!!
It all started in 1961 for the Cabela’s and now 57 years on, they are still going strong.
Back on the 80, passing through lush green farmland, we are heading across Nebraska and will soon head south to Kansas.
Whilst a fair bit of the first stretch was seen through the back of my eyelids, we passed familiar places such as Fort Cody Museum, Golden Spike at North Platte, past Gothenburg, famous as one of the Pony Express post’s!
The temp has risen to a rather warm 98F (36.6C), even the cows are standing in any water they can to cool off.
Entering the ‘sunflower state’ we continue South to Hays for the night.
