Day 4:

Got up to a foggy but sunny morning. The sun raised the fog and it turned into a mostly cloudy day BUT NOT WET!. We drove over to

the Homestead National Monument of America. It is a very nice and interesting facility and I was surprised at the number of people

visiting the facility. We spent a couple hours there going through the exhibits. Jena (Magee’s grand daughter) completed her Junior

Ranger tasks for the monument and earned a badge.

We then drove all the way to North Platte where we stopped for fuel. I was so mad at the guy in front of me, that I forgot to pick up

my receipt - - the guys had parked at the front gas pump then both went inside to to get burgers before they started pumping gas - -

and they had me boxed in. Turns out Kerry’s low fuel light had come on before we stopped at an expensive place and decided to drive

on another 13 miles to the next exit. He put 24.2 gallons in his 26 gallon tank (we put 19 gallons into our 22

gal tank).

Tomorrow we’ll head further west making stops at Chimney Rock NM, Scotts Bluff NM, and Agate Fossil Beds NM (all in NE) and spend

the night in either Ft Robinson SP or Chadron SP.
