Making it cross Nebraska

Today are goal was to get across Nebraska. Forecast was for hot and windy, Nebraska did not disappoint. First half of the day we had wind gusts up to 40 mph, second half the winds died down but the temp soared. We ended the last hour with temps at 108 degrees.

This beautiful structure was our first stop of the day. It's called The Holy Family Shrine and can be seen for miles along the 80 between Omaha and Lincoln. We got there too early to actually go in but it was worth the stop. I'd like to go to a worship service here.

 

 

 

 

 

Our second stop was the UPS store in Lincoln. After 2 days of hot feet, we shed the riding boots and shipped them home.

On the road when the temp peeked at 110 degree! Yikes! Our first experience riding above 100. The R1200RT did fine, no problems. Also I was amazed how well our new Nolan N43E helmets felt, believe it or not, it was cooler to run with the face shields down.

We stop frequently for water. Dave kept trying to get the timer on the camera to work and I just wanted out of the blazing sun! I think it was 107 here. Is it any wonder we aren't touching?

 

In North Platte we visited the Golden Spike Tower and Visitor Center. It over looked the largest rail yard in the world – the Union Pacific Baily Yard. I am not a train guy but it was fascinating. Great stop if you are in North Platte.

 

At the motel we hit the pool after a long hot day…
