Bob and Shirley's Great Adventure 2011-12 travel blog

August 1, 1979 at 1:47 in the afternoon our first daughter Darci was born. What a great day! It is also the exact time that I came back to the Lord. Seeing this miracle was fantastic. I love you Darci and so does your mom. Happy Birthday! Another big day in Kearney Nebraska. I realized yesterday the state abbreviation is not NB but NE sorry to the corn huskers. We went to church at the friendliest UMC we have been to so far. Then on to Ft. Kearney where the wagon trains came for a stop over AND where the pony express ran west. Kearney was the western most point of the telegraph at that time. Then to the Rails and Trails museum where we had a private tour of the historic buildings and trains. Rounded the day out with a visit to a really nice art gallery. After dinner we rode our bikes 4 miles on the rail trail out to the Platte River and caught sunset as we crossed the Oregon and 49'er trail (did not see Joe Montana).Colorado or BUST by nightfall. Due to poor internet service pics will be up tomorrow, sorry.
