Left Omaha, Nebraska. Windy day – helmet and bike buffeted about. Road construction zones – feel every bump, grove and inconsistency in the pavement. Travel day – passed through Hazard, Nebraska; pop. 66. Cornfields and a lot nothing to report – wide, open spaces. Many trains and cars loaded with coal.
Contour changing from flat to texture and hilly. Less and less cornfields and more open spaces. Camper blew tire, tire smoking just before tire blew and a chunk of rubber skidded across the yellow line. Thankful the tire just missed us!
