Today the girlfriend and I decided to take a ride. We've been planning on adding more states to our list so we looked up the closest point in Nebraska to us and discovered a little town called Rulo. There's nothing much there except a bar&grille and a historical marker, but it *IS* in Nebraska so that became our destination.
It was a sunny day but the upper 60's temperature was a tad chilly for an all day ride, but not unbearable. I mapped out the ride on Google maps and found some back roads to take. Unknown to us, one of the roads I chose was Hwy T and while it DID go through, it was not paved the entire length of the way. Also, there was a T in the road and we turned the wrong way, thereby leading us to a different highway, RA. That highway took us back up to I 29 where we found a cool little store.
This store we found was such an interesting place. It has everything: fireworks, liquor, convenience items, hunting supplies, camping supplies, and of course, antiques. If they ain't got it, you don't need it.
Here is a pic of the inside of the place:
After the store we rode through Oregon, MO and then on up to Rulo, NE where I took these three pics. In all three pics the scooter is sitting in the same spot and only I moved.
After all of this we rode back taking some differing back roads (and one not so back road) to Cameron, MO where we had a great dinner at Ma & Pa's Kettle Restaurant. They have some good down home food there and you should stop in if you're in the area.
All in all we had a great day riding and hopefully we'll get to take more trips to more states very soon!
