We were out the door by 8:30 a.m., collecting bugs on our windshield while taking in the wide-open landscape
As we headed northward up highway 385 from Sidney, Nebraska, the hills continued to roll easily, some of the best farmland in the world. This, of course, led to our seeing quite a few tractors and tractor parts places, especially on the approach to Bridgeport.
They had a LOT of farm equipment.
Past Bridgeport, though, it was less than a half hour to Alliance, and, just on the other side of that city, our first tourism stop.
