No more mountains. Just the flatness of Nebraska. We spent the night in Lexington Nebraska at a park called Johnson Lake Recreation Area. Big huge trees here. We had a nice site, went into town for some Mexican. We eat Mexican food every day. There was a strange odor in this town. Sort of smelled like mouse piss, but harsher. We thinks the smell was coming from the giant livestock market or the Tyson Chicken factory. It just got deep inside your nostrils and wouldn’t leave. Thankfully, the campground was far enough from the town and so it smelled ok. It was great sleeping weather. In the low 60’s. We were both able to take showers agin with a handful of quarters. Unfortunate, I didn’t take any pictures of our campsite or the campground but I would recommend it.
We left in the afternoon and headed east towards Iowa. We stopped a casino for a great buffet with crab legs. Left a donation in the slot machines and then continued on. We decided to stay the night at the Walmart Parking Lot in Council Bluffs, Iowa. There were a couple of other campers and some trucks. We went in to ask the manager if it would be ok because that is the proper etiquette when staying overnight at a Walmart parking lot. He said it was fine but told us like 3 times that they are not responsible for any damage. (That made me a little nervous) so we parked and walked around inside Walmart for a while
and then went outside to sleep. Around midnight another teardrop camper pulled alongside of us and went to sleep also. It was fine, if you like loud trucks, and bright lights. At 6 am, greg woke up cause it was looking stormy. He checked his phone and a big storm was heading our way so we packed up and headed out.
We had such an early start to our day that we were able to have a nice breakfast at Cracker Barrel! If you have never stopped at one, be sure to eat there at some point in your life!! You won’t regret it.
We found out why it’s so crowded…. cause the state fair is up the road which of course we went to. It’s amazing how HUGE these state fairs are once you get out of the metropolitan area. The food is amazing and there entertainment, lots of it. Oh and did I mention the amazing food!!
The weirdest thing about the sunset was this strange second and third sun that appeared in every picture I took. What do you suppose that is!?!? Even when I cleaned the lens it still appeared.
Got an early start out of there and made it back to Raquette Lake in one piece!! Getting ready for the big Auction this weekend!! We have some friends visiting and it’s always a good time!!
