Just a quick update. We made it to Omaha, NE. We're staying in a KOA "Kabin" tonight and finishing the rest of the trek tomorrow. We're about 7 hours away from Denver, by Google reckoning, plus we gain (or is it lose?) an hour when we cross into the mountain time zone at the Nebraska / Colorado border.
I'm sending this update from a small cabin, in a corn-field in Nebraska on a wireless network. In the words of Dean, "It is the 21st century!"
We'll update again when we get to a connection... it looks like it may be a while before we get the home line set up due to all kinds craziness between Qwest and a local ISP we're trying to use.
P.S. I will continue with the next installment of the trip out here when time and connections are available.
