Thanksgiving Week Part 3: That Stupid Drive Across Nebraska

Well, I’m still continuing Thanksgiving week here on my blog, but the only Thanksgiving memory that is occuring to my very tired brain right now is the desolate 8 hour drive across Nebraska my girlfriend and I just finished to come into Omaha to visit relatives for Thanksgiving. You think driving all the way across Nebraska is bad in the summer? It’s worse in the winter. True, there was no snow so I should be grateful for that. However, the wind was still arctic. The landscape was still blank. Nebraska is boring enough during the growing season since it is cultivated virtually from end to end. It’s worse in winter when nothing is growing. All there is for 500 miles is broken corn stalks and dirt. Mainly dirt. The only game to play is “what used to grow in that dirt?” Very boring. All so we could come visit relatives. Stupid Thanksgiving. Try back tomorrow. I might regain my sense of humor and come up with a real blog topic. Maybe not, though. I’ll be here through Sunday when I repeat the exact same thing, but in reverse.

    mr david,
    i just loved part three, and serious i am…as the 12yr old, 6.5 month old, puppy, rich and myself traveled across the entire state of iowa and a portion of illinois. i 110% agree with your comments, only difference…it was dark and an over abundance of poor crushed deer…and the same for us in reverse on sunday. at least you had some game to play, boring or not…we entered the neverending story and were being swallowed by the nothing…and nothing is what we had…

    have a wonderful “stupid thanksgiving” 🙂
