Ha!
I thought NB stood for New Brunswick and thought - wow they drove far!
Actually now that I look at Google maps, assuming VA is Virginia, it really would be about the same distance you've traveled to Nebraska.
(New Brunwick is on the other side of Maine for those who know the geography of our provinces as well as I know the geography of your states!)

Have fun Bud. I dream of a long CT-13 trip myself. Perhaps across your country so I can get the geography down through personal experience!

My first thought was New Brunswick, too, but then I looked back at Bud's travel agenda and realized he was in Nebraska. Traveling I-80 is the quickest way across that looooong state, but they have interesting prairie scenery all the way. I especially love the change of grasses and trees from state to state. Contrary to what other car drivers say, no state is boring to drive through if you really take a look. Everything is unique!

Well then, if Andy really might let us start using handles and I call my little Ranger the TONKA Toy. Maybe I will consider using the TOONCa TONKA as my handle.

Thanks for the thought Bridget.

Shucks, you guys never let me get away with anything.
Anyhow, now we are in the united state of ID. If you tell me there is a Canadian province of " Indisn Digs" I will surely commit harri carri.

It used to be a lot easier when we both had 3 letters for each of our provinces and states.

It was not all that long ago (1972) that Lou Reed wrote his hit "Walk on the wild side".
"Holly came from Miami, FLA
Hitch hiked her way across the USA"

Today the lyrics would be missing a beat.
He might have to have made the tune with a Canadian character. eg.

" Holly came from Corner Brook, NL - Eh "

Today we are in Burns Or. - we will arrive in Bend after a three hour drive tomorrow.

The people we are visiting there will not be home til Monday so we will camp at the forest service campground at twin lakes.

So far, we have been most impressed with the campground at Vedauoo glen near Larime Wyoming. This place is a visual delight! I will post pictures when I get Judy's new camera figured out.

Other sights worth mentioning are :

The ride from interstate 80 on interstate 84 to Ogden Utah,

The ride from Vale Or. to Burns Or. on US 20.

Camping out on a ridge off a dirt road high above Green River WY.
