A Hiccough and a Burp in Nebraska
For some reason, it was a very long day on the road and took me forever to get stopped and stay on my route schedule. One reason might be my little peppy companion pup--Cassie raises a major fuss when she is tired of being cooped up in her Palace. She will not shut her yap, so I find myself stopping more often... One of the stops was outside of Omaha--a "Hiccough in the road" called Crete, NE. No services. Not even any pavement in the road further than 100 yds from the highway exit. Nothing but a mobile home park and a very strange rundown building brilliantly painted in bright, day-glow colors with the words "Peace to the World".
Didn't stay long there and finally came up on this super little Rest Stop in York, NE. York NE is a "Burp in the road". You can see the scene out my door. I just could help it--I wanted to stay there rather than the Walmart! So, because it was patrolled with security, was a Visitor Center and seemed "safe", I decided to stop. Was I glad! I popped my wine bottle, tuned in to find some TV signal and slept like a baby!
