oregon trail

at least we're in no danger of cholera

mileage: 1380
weather: clear, warm
pace: grueling

Hello from Lincoln, Nebraska! And let me tell you -- if you're not in Lincoln, Nebraska this weekend, you are the only one who isn't. I am currently sitting in the LAST hotel room in the entire greater Lincoln area, and arrived here after quite a bit of misdirection (we made a reservation at a totally different hotel than the one we actually drove to because THE PHONE NUMBER IN THE AD WAS WRONG, apparently due to evil machinations by the owner of numerous hotels in the area) and getting lost and such. Now, apparently Lincoln, Nebraska is not *always* such a hot spot to spend a Friday night, but this weekend is the last college football home game, the national volleyball tournament, and conventions for both Harley Davidsons and, er, scrapbooking, among other things.
