Wake up, Andrew! It’s a special day!
Yes, it’s Nebraska’s 155th birthday…and…the crane migration is on through the Central Flyway!
They’re birds, Andy. BIG birds. You like birds, eh?! Yummy, BIG birds?
Well, folks, I guess Andy will miss the crane migration again this year.
Andy and I are native Nebraskans. We are proud to be that! Nebraska is a jewel in the middle of the United States, a so-called “flyover state” because most Americans think the state is flat and featureless. That misconception comes from I-80, the Interstate highway through Nebraska, which follows the Platte River floodplain. You know, the flattest route through the state! This video starts out on my end of the state. “Flat”! LOL!
Here’s a lot more information on Nebraska, more than you probably want to know! Of course, if you do want to read this, you will find Nebraska is more than flatlands in the middle of the USA.
My hometown, Alliance, is a quirky place and features one of the quirkiest roadside attractions you’ll find in the USA, Carhenge.
