Driving through Nebraska with SAG

(Support and Gear) People have repeatedly asked us if we are riding supported, meaning that a car is following us. Until Nebraska, our response of “no,” always gave people a second shock, after first hearing that we were biking across the country. But in Nebraska, we fortunately had my dad to help us out. FYI, Lincoln, Nebraska, was not only the first state capital we biked into, but also the best city to bike into from the outside countryside. They had cement bike paths from suburbia which turned into yellow dotted lines along the sidewalk downtown. The path took us directly towards the campus, where we joined the celebratory food and drink where the Nebraska Huskers were rejoicing their win over the Washington Huskies. We were Husker fans just long enough to get free campus food! J

We also took pleasure in cooking up a delicious meal of pasta with avocado, almonds, tomato sauce, meat, etc. plus snacks, alongside our pick-up truck in the street by the capital. Thanks Daddy!!

Above and beyond the not-carrying-our-weight, people were pretty much right about the state of Nebraska and that from Lincoln, heading west, you see lots and lots and lots of corn and cows. Thank you Nebraska for you yield which feeds us.
