Today we continued southeast on flat roads with the steady Nebraska wind out of the south. It was one of our longer days today and we wanted to beat the heat so we got started early. There were several small towns along the way often with a convenience store. We took several nice breaks and got out of the heat. Many local folk are very interested in the details of our trip and today we answered a lot of questions. One nice women, who used to be a Barrel Racer, offered us a place to stay and shower. Everyone we have met in Nebraska has been very kind and helpful.
When we arrived at our destination in O’Neill we learned that it was founded by Irish immigrants in 1884.
