About 1100km later, at the end of the day, we aimed for a city run campground in Papillon, Nebraska, but the last spot was taken about an hour before we showed up. They directed us the KOA about 20 km west and when we showed up there they were all full. The grouchy old lady at the KOA reception says, "You know this is Nebraska and you need to reserve your camping because you know...it's very busy." Bless her, she ended up suggesting Pine Grove RV in Greenwood and after some encouragement called them for us, and barked into the phone that some people were coming with a 38 foot RV. It was another 20 km further west and we got the LAST camping spot.
Lessons Learned: Reserve your campsite in Nebraska !
We saw wind turbine blades going down the high way. Also crop dusters, likely spraying chemicals from Monsanto that their genetically modified crops are immune to. Tom is a great driver and got us safely here for the night.
