When I started my recent road trip I had no plans to do touristy things. Partly because I didn't expect any to be open and partly because I didn't know if I would feel safe doing them. There have been some pleasant surprises along the way that have allowed me to get out and do … Continue reading Jack Daniel’s Distillery – Adventures During Covid

I only had one night in Nebraska so I didn't have a lot of time or sightseeing or adventures, but I did make one stop at a place in Minden that a coworker recommended.

I started my big 17 day road trip a couple days ago and overall, it's been a much better experience than last year. Well, 95%, but that 5% is story for later in the post.
