I’ve driven through, ridden through, and flown over Nebraska.  I also spent a year in Broken Bow, Nebraska one week, but I’ve never really taken a good look at it beyond the flat corn fields and cattle dotting the hillsides.


It’s time to take a closer look at Nebraska!  For starters its nickname, The Cornhuskers,  came from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln Campus’  intercollegiate athletic teams.  This replaced the previous nickname “The Tree Planters State” in 1945.  Other nicknames include “The Beef State”, “The Antelope State”, “Blackwater State” and my personal favorite “The Bug State.”

Next week we embark on a little USA trip to  discover  the REAL Nebraska.  Follow us as we explore Nebraska’s peaks, valleys and rivers.

Our primary destination is Grand Island, Nebraska where we hope to witness approximately 600,000 Sandhill Cranes  stopping to refuel before heading to their Canadian summer homes.
