How Much Corn Could a Cornhusker Husk?

Moving through Nebraska

WesTrek '99

July 1999

There's a lot of states out in the great Midwest as Dave and NOT, and despite rolling into the great state of Nebraska, not once on the visit did Dave or NOT get a picture of any Corn. So there is no way of knowing if it truly does get as high as an Elephant's eye. (Or is that only in Oklahoma!?)

But despite no corn, there were rocks, including Chimney Rock in Bayard. No smoke though.

Chimney Rock

And when cars die, the mysterious automotive druids snatch them away in order to perform sacred rituals around the Nebraskan solstice. These mysterious people of Alliance have disappeared, leaving behind the silent Buicks, Chryslers and Fords as testament to their strange rites.

  More Carhenge
Still More Carhenge  

Good thing the Griswolds were not around to wreck havoc.*

Despite the mystery of Carhenge, NOT found that the natives could be courteous and neighborly. they provided NOT with a thoughtful place to go while on the go.

Stop and Rest a spell

Though the natives weren't so talkative, focusing on looking for those fossils at Fossil Beds National Monument

You Wascally Wabbit

Or they were never too busy to give another one a "piggy back ride" according to Dave.

Do they hop in bed?
