Well I made it to Pierce Nebraska which is on the 6th Meridian N/S. Just above Norfolk. Slept in a church parking lot. Got going early and had breakfast over looking the state Border and the Missouri River. At a town call Yanken. Which is a site the Lewis and Clark met up with some Indians to make a treaty. next was off towards Rapid City 290 miles (4 1/2 - 5 hrs drive). Stopped at a rest area overlooking the Missouri River, yes I crossed it twice. A tribute to Lewis and Clark and also the Indians of the area. A few more miles down the track and a turn off for a Minute Missile site. One of 5 across the USA. It was a missile that was supposed to be ready to launch within a minute of an order from the President in case of an attack from the Soviets. It is no longer in use now. Just up the road from this was a place to feed Prarie dogs. So I went along to see what it was all about and took a couple hundred photos. Arrived in Rapid City and to my horror the Power Steering was not working. very hard to get it around corners. So I have topped it up and fingers crossed that is the only problem.
