Loved Nebraska but Iowa is easy to pass up!
The planners in Iowa should be fired. The beautiful Rt. 20 through Nebraska through the small towns turned into a Rt. 20 divided 4 lane that bypassed all the towns. Sad, I have no desire to get off this road to find the towns because they are far from the road. Like I am really going to drive 6 miles to the left or right to discover a town. No wonder small town America has died in states that have made it easier for travelers to get out of the state or skip the state on the big 4 lanes. Rt. 20 in Nebraska was 65 mph with short sections of 1 mile in towns every 30 miles or so when it dropped to 35. A very enjoyable mix to see small town america. Sorry Iowa, I am outta here after I visit the Field of Dreams and heading south toward Nashville, TN to visit my cousins then home! Another beautiful day on the cool side starting out at 55 at 9 am and rising to 65 around 12:00 noon. There is also fine dining in NE and IA......Dairy Queen is everywhere!
