  • Just left downtown Denver from the Indigo.

  • It's a hotel indigo.

  • Yeah.

  • Tell him to go.

  • And yeah we're about 30 minutes out from there.

  • So it's kind of getting a little sparse now it doesn't look city like anymore.

  • But I enjoyed my stay there.

  • It was great.

  • We love downtown Denver.

  • Although we're only just there for one night.

  • We went to the Grand Central Station Union Station.

  • Sorry, you probably would have understood anyway.

  • Yeah, Grand Central Station is um in L.

  • A.

  • And in new york and in new york.

  • Yeah.

  • Um but we were gonna eat lunch there.

  • I mean dinner there but a lot of the places that we wanted to go to work clothes.

  • So luckily across the street there was a roman place and we love ramen.

  • So we had ramen at this place called Virginia which is kind of a chain restaurant around um in the U.

  • S.

  • And it's this pretty good.

  • It's not like authentic, authentic japanese room but flavoring.

  • Well yeah, the flavorings there.

  • So we enjoy Denver for just one night.

  • And now we are heading to Nebraska.

  • Specifically theatrics Nebraska.

  • So I bet I guess like 80% of you don't know where that is maybe even higher, 90% don't know where Beatrice Nebraska.

  • We were very very young.

  • I don't really remember much because I was in kindergarten we lived in was in Blue Springs Nebraska.

  • Omaha Omaha.

  • So we live in Omaha Nebraska.

  • Omaha has a big city in Nebraska and it's about an hour from Lincoln.

  • And then Beatrice is another what I have from where we used to live and that is where our relatives live.

  • Yeah.

  • So our relatives live and this is our dad's side in Lincoln.

  • And it's not, the actress is actually our grandma used to live in Blue Springs.

  • Nebraska which is only like what does this spring's coming?

  • Yeah Blue Springs is about 5, 10 minutes from the actress.

  • But the actress is a city.

  • So a little actually excitement City is a town, it's a little town.

  • So they have hotels there and thank goodness they had a pet friendly hotel.

  • So we're staying at the Holiday Inn Express their and then are uncle lives on a farm and he takes care of the cows there.

  • So that's about a 30 minute drive from the address and the farm has been passed down for generations in the family.

  • So it's like the late 18 hundreds.

  • Yeah so it's been there for a long, long time and it just brings back a lot of, I don't remember much but the only reason why I someone remember is because We actually used to have a video camera back in the 80s which is surprising.

  • So there's a lot of footage of the farm and thus feeding the cows and where kids.

  • So it's really um that's where all my memories really come from is the videotapes Crystal was a lot a little bit older.

  • So I think she actually really remember remembers from memory more than the tapes because we're about five years in age difference.

  • So at the time I think I was about, I wasn't given the garden is in between 10-13 years old when I was in Nebraska.

  • So candy was fiber states.

  • Yeah, she was very young.

  • We were only there for what, three years, three years.

  • We weren't there very long.

  • Yeah.

  • Um, yeah, we have, it's very nostalgic every time I go back there, we don't go back there often.

  • Are grandma passed away one of several years ago.

  • It's been a while.

  • It's gotta be like seven years now.

  • So yeah, she passed away and that was the last time room Nebraska, her cousin Gwen, she lives in Lincoln and she also helps out in the farm in Wymore.

  • She gives us updates on what's going on.

  • And she's kind of like the liaison between us and our uncle.

  • I'm looking forward to seeing him and also our cousins too because we haven't seen any of them for a long time.

  • Um, but I'm also looking forward to visiting the farm.

  • It's very nostalgic to go back there and kind of retrace the footsteps of where, you know, we played around in the hay or fed the cows or you know, visited the old house because I believe the old farmhouse is still there.

  • They don't live in it anymore because our, one of our cousins built our uncle in your home and so they just leave the house up there and it's, you know, it looks like it's made from the 18 hundreds because probably was so I did a little research of what there is to do in the actress because although I've been there many times and you lived around the area, you know when I was younger, I never really state and Beatrice or did anything in Beatrice, remember like our grandma taking a shopping one time and Beatrice somewhere.

  • Um but that was about it.

  • That's all I've ever done in the address.

  • So there is a little town there, they have several restaurants and they also have a homestead national Monument of America site there.

  • So I thought I'd be great to check that out just to learn a little bit about that history.

  • Yeah, I just looked at briefly about the history.

  • So that was where the famous homestead act.

  • I was looking up about the homestead up and that was basically a time in America where they were offering free land to people.

  • And that was to help promote people to come and start farming and basically to start growing the area in the land um to make him a prosperous, they actually have a computer there where you can look up your family's genealogy.

  • Um And if they did actually um take part in that, so I thought that was really interesting.

  • I actually downloaded our family tree just to see if we put in any names, if anything comes up.

  • Yeah, I think we have a high chance where we are like our family is part of that because our family.

  • So they're actually from bohemia is what they called it back then.

  • It's a mix of Chico's a Czech Republic which they call chicken now.

  • Um Slovakia and um hungry.

  • So they used to call bohemia.

  • Um so that was our grandma's heritage and then our grandfather was german anyway, so they moved to the States and ended up in Nebraska.

  • Somehow we don't know how they ended up in Nebraska.

  • So maybe they did take part of his homestead act you know, you never know.

  • So that is our drive today.

  • Nebraska and it's about seven hours.

  • Yeah, it's about a seven hour drive.

  • About 500 miles.

  • Not bad.

  • That's from Denver of course.

  • Yeah.

  • Mhm.

  • Mhm.

  • Just touch with candy and we're in Nebraska now.

  • Yeah, lots of corn.

  • And I know we're in Nebraska.

  • We've got a bit Nebraska.

  • We didn't see that Nebraska sign.

  • Welcome to Nebraska.

  • I guess they don't make a big deal about it.

  • But we are like on the bottom corner of Nebraska maybe they don't put one there in the engines.

  • I don't know.

  • I don't know but we didn't know we were in Nebraska but I felt like we're in Nebraska, Nebraska played well and I saw corn corn fields to the right and we've got to be a difference.

  • But so we are 304 miles away now and I've got about four hours left in the drive we just stopped by Mcdonald's, that was exit 1 26 on I 80 east I thought were from Denver up into this point there was quite a bit of stops.

  • Yeah, I wasn't really, there was like one stretch room like it hasn't been a gas station, but yeah, there was quite a bit of gas stations and there was a couple of rest stops.

  • One of them was closed but we didn't feel like, oh my God, I really need to go to the next section that we always found an exit.

  • So not a problem around here on I 76 I 80 so we stop tough and ended up getting Mcdonald's, yes, it's always there.

  • You know, I'm gonna go, I'm getting my, you guess I'm going to get my happy meal again.

  • Yeah, This is the only thing that I don't like about road trips as a limited options for food because we're not big fans of fast food.

  • So yeah, I don't really like eating basket burgers.

  • I never do.

  • It were forced to eat.

  • Yeah, I mean that's fine every once a while.

  • Of course I have a craving for like a big Mac every once in a while, you know, but it's not very often like to have it every day.

  • It takes a toll on you and your body.

  • I wish they had more healthy options on road trips because in Japan when you got road trips there's a ton of healthy options.

  • You can get rice balls, you can get really like simple sandwiches on the go.

  • Um you can get like these bento box that was rice and sam like they just have so many healthy options for on the road and we just don't have that here And that's what I don't like about road trips here.

  • I mean of course you can have a big cooler with you and keep on taking it with you with healthier options.

  • But we did that in the beginning and of course it allows for like two days.

  • That's it.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • Mhm Yeah.

  • Mhm.

  • This is a nice area.

  • This Nebraska city, Fort kearney cut off massive freighting of supplies by oxen mule trains was a direct result of the establishment of Fort kearney and other Western military posts.

  • It was actually a little site.

  • The drive has been pretty boring but I like it that way.

  • I like straight shot roads like this and actually like seeing corn.

  • Yeah, it hasn't been a bad drive.

  • No, it hasn't been bad at all and plenty of rest areas.

  • Yeah.

  • Rest areas.

  • But there's zero stations.

  • Soul services.

  • Not, it doesn't seem as secluded as we're driving through like Sedona at a colorado.

  • That's just my way.

  • We're really nowhere.

  • There was never any reception but this trip has been reception.

  • Either I don't have it or this doesn't happen.

  • But one of us always has it so I don't feel so away from everything.

  • Yeah I am so surprised that this entire ride I've had about 2-4 bars like full full bars And like in the Nebraska area to I'm like what?

  • I totally thought I would have a little to no reception around here.

  • She has more than me, I've been having 3G the whole time um but I did just get lt you know so yeah I'm with Verizon and she's with yeah with T mobile.

  • Yeah but we seem to have opposite reception sometimes it works out for us so if one of us doesn't have reception there they're always has.

  • Yeah I just got some coffee at pilot that was exit uh 257 removed.

  • Um And as candy said there's lots of exits on the way, there's lots of best areas, they do a great job of doing that on I 80 because it's way better than California.

  • Or did they give you no exits?

  • Yeah for almost every address only three minutes away arriving before six p.m. Which pretty good timing and the drive wasn't bad at all.

  • I think it went by pretty fast.

  • I did three and 4.5 hours of driving.

  • Yeah turn right onto Business Avenue, turn left, okay here we are right next to a ford Lincoln dealership interesting the destination is on your right holiday Inn Express and suites interest, It looks pretty new or at least the building is still very pristine.

  • You must have done like a renovation of fun or new paintings.

  • Okay we are here.

  • No, no, did you hear huh?

  • Just like did you have a big, I want to park out.

  • He's just looking born, will you let me borrow?

  • Just let me bark.

  • I think we're gonna forget about you.

  • Is that why you bark?

  • Just get super duper excited.
