Sunday brought about more of the same weather.
Windy and cold. I packed up my stuff from the motel, stopped and got some coffee and fueled up the truck. I couldn’t resist taking a picture of the sign on the gas station.
I stopped back at the fairgrounds to help the guys finish cleaning and loading up.
Once I got my smoker loaded up it was time to head back east.
The rain stayed with me most of the way home, and finally let up about 20 miles from my house.
Changing Things Up
One thing I like to do on road trips to change things up is to go home a different way than I came if possible. The road home didn’t allow for many windshield pictures because of the rain, but I did manage to stop at another old childhood favorite of mine, Front Street in Ogalalla, Nebraska.
The canyons south of Gothenburg on Nebraska highway 47 allowed for a nice scenic drive and some wildlife viewing (eagles, turkey and deer). I encourage you to take that highway if you are ever travelling through the area.
In conclusion, the trip was a success. The weather was the only downer on an otherwise outstanding convention. I want to thank the Nebraska Fur Harvesters Association for all they do for the youth of Nebraska, and for putting on a first rate convention. I hope to attend many more.
