Central Nebraska Junk Jaunt!

The 300 mile garage sale begins this Friday, September 22nd and lasts through Sunday, September 24, 2017. From perusing the 2017 Shopper’s Guide for the Junk Jaunt, it looks to be bigger and better than ever!
Fourteen towns along Nebraska Highway 2 are in the Shopper’s Guide, from Thedford to Grand Island. I hope to make a stop in each of the 14 towns to meet junk jaunters and maybe pick up a treasure or two. Will I see you out there?
Please remember that there will be many out of staters as well as folks from other areas of Nebraska who will be slowing down and turning around trying to locate different junk jaunt sites so give them plenty of room, time and courtesy! We would like everyone to stay safe and enjoy Central Nebraska’s Junk Jaunt!

Leaving It All Behind

There was a time when I was an absolute news junky.  Read newspapers, listened to morning and evening news shows… no longer.  Now I want to shut out the nonsense, the ugliness, the tradgedies happening here at home and abroad.  The best way to do this?  Get out there on the highway and drive.  My favorite drive is on Nebraska highway 2 of course.  Westward bound.  Up to Halsey National Forest.  On to Mullen.  Maybe out to Crawford and the beauty of the Pine Ridge area of Northwest Nebraska.  Open spaces.  Big skies.  The feeling that you can go forever into solitude and nature.  And escape the noise of the civilized world that’s not so civil these days.  How about you?  Where is your favorite drive?
