Then tomorrow we will go to Lincoln, Nebraska and camp for two nights at Branched Oak State Park northwest of Lincoln. Butch hopes to play golf on Thursday with his brother Dan.
On Friday, we will continue to Fort Kearney State Recreation Area for two nights. Some of Butch's cousins are having a mini-reunion in Kearney and it should be interesting. There is a thread of insanity that runs through the Hildebrands. They tend to build their own planes, land on roads, things like that.
After Kearney, plans are much looser. We would like to go north into the Sand Hills. No cranes this time of year but my grandmother grew up in Grand Island, the youngest of five, and her mother died shortly after she was born. So she often spent the summers in Custer County with cousins who live in a sod house. There is a restored sod house there that would be fun to see.
Then we will head back to Iowa, maybe to the Loess Hills, maybe Okoboji, maybe both. Whatever, it will be another show.
