What a great thread! Thanks also for the pictures.
I drive back every summer from Idaho to Omaha and the last 2 times have jumped off I90 in Kadoka, SD to drop down to Valentine and the state highways. (Too much construction in SD and IA) I always stop in Valentine to have my 1st - or last - Runza on my trip!

I agree that Montana is really pretty and the speed limit is nice as well. What did you think of the Battle of Little Bighorn Battle Field? I thought it was exceptionally well done and very sobering.

Idaho was beautiful as well. We drove north from Nevada to Twin Falls, a lovely community. Then north to Ketchum where we spent the night. The next day we drove through the Sawtooth National Forest. One of my favorite drives on the trip. I want to make the trek up to northern Idaho someday.

Little Bighorn Battlefield was very nice. Many were buried where they fell. A fitting tribute.

Miss Nebraska myself, born in North Omaha, lived in Elkhorn, then just outside of Yutan where I went to a country school in Wann. After that we moved to western Nebraska (Burwell) when I was 12. Joined the military out of High School and ended up g in Utah due to the amount of work after I retired from the Air Force. Always enjoy hitting Pine Bluff on my trips back because I know once I round that corner I'll see the sign saying, "Welcome to Nebraska"! I'll be making that trip here shortly when I travel back to visit my dad in the nursing home in Albion. Isn't the same as when Mom and Dad had the ranch, but it's still home no matter how long I've been away.

Burwell is not western Nebraska. I grew up in western Nebraska and we considered Burwell as an eastern Nebraskan town. Growing up we thought eastern Nebraska started at Gothenburg.

To each there own. I was referring it as western since I started life all around Omaha.
