Chadron State Park Nebraska Aug 2017
Wanted to go hiking. As it was in the midst of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally we decided we'd go to Chadron State Park and indeed, there were very few others there.
Car Camera - NE 66 - Ashland, NE to the I-80 Interchange (NE) . 2014 ( ネブラスカ州道66号線 )
On this leg of our journey on this day, we travel from the town of Ashland, Nebraska, U.S.A. along Nebraska Highway 66 and end up at the Interstate 80 interchange along the same route with a quick stop at the Strategic Air & Space Museum (formerly the SAC Museum at Offutt Air Force Base).
Much of NE Hwy. 66 is unique in this part of Nebraska because of it's curves... and beyond the interchange where we stop at, it's trees. If I remember right (and I could be wrong on this), this part of Hwy. 66 (the part we travel on today) was built recently... maybe within the last 25 years when Mahoney State Park was established??? Ah, I may have been too young then to remember, but it seems like that's how it was :p .
Since then, many attractions have popped up around the I-80 Ashland interchange, including a wildlife safari, a golf course, etc.
Hope I'm right on some of these facts :/ ... as always, though, please enjoy the ride!

Platte River State Park
Located near Omaha, Nebraska
A little hard to follow as the trail is not well marked. We got lost a couple of times and finally found a local who kindly gave us a tour. There is some technical sections and lots of up and down but not much in the way of extended climbs or descents.

8/10/16 SHELTON NEBRASKA : REPENT & BE BAPTIZED, the KINGDOM of HEAVEN is NEAR ! #AmazingGRACE!
_________ ALS0 SEE ________________ GREETINGS! if you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and you are ready to become a Christian and can say the following: I'm sorry Jesus for my sins. Thank You for dying to save me. I welcome You into my heart & commit my life to You then I BAPTIZE YOU in the NAME of the Father, Son, & Holy SPirit (baptism in the Spirit) and you are NOW A Christian and begin your journey to eternal life! Some things to do once you become a Christian. 1st, start talking to God. We call it prayer. You can do it anywhere, anytime, not just at church with your eyes closed. You can pray while driving, while jogging, in school, wherever...; it also helps you build a personal relationship with Jesus. 2nd, get a Bible. The Bible is the Word of God. It includes an Old Testament & a New Testament. You can get one at most bookstores for a few dollars. Or you can get one at some churches, often times for free. Or you can message me here on youtube & I will send you one for free. 3rd, find a church. I encourage you to find a church that supports traditional values (ie one man + one woman = marriage; & also defends unborn life and is against abortion). Don't settle for the 1st church you find. I encourage you to try to find one that has solid Biblical teaching, with a pastor who cares about people, and a congregation that genuinely wants to help new members become a part of the Body of Christ (another name for the worldwide Christian church is the Body of Christ) ...; those are a few basic starting steps for becoming a Christian. And remember, sometimes life becomes more difficult as a Christian, but don't give up...hang in there...God will never push you beyond what you can handle. Trust Him. It's worth it. God be with you and bless you.
Car Camera - U.S. 6 - Waverly to the I-80 Gretna, NE Interchange . 2013 ( アメリカ国道6号線 )
Today we go to the countryside again... a little look of what Nebraska, U.S.A. looks like during early summer. We begin in the town of Waverly and head northeast towards Gretna on U.S. Highway 6. We don't reach the town of Gretna itself... we stop just short at the Nebraska Crossings Outlet Mall (currently being rebuilt) at Gretna's Interstate 80 Interchange.
This ride is a beautiful ride but also can be a bumpy one. Here, U.S. 6 serves as an alternate route for nearby I-80, so at times slower, heavier trucks rumble on this surface. At the beginning, we go through a section that is being rehabilitated which is good news. In and past Ashland, the road is iffy at best...
Going back to the beautiful, we travel through a wide section of the Platte River valley, one with high hills on either side. For about 60 years now, an idea has been floated and is brought up every now and then to create a dam here that would create a lake similar to Lake McConaughy in western Nebraska. The only problem is that the town of Ashland would be put under water and have to be rebuilt... pretty pricey!
Also, we go by Nebraska's only lighthouse (once was a tourist resort with it's own beach in the old days)! Nearby (to the southeast) on the Platte River is the all-so-popular Mahoney State Park. Also not too far from Mahoney is Schramm Park State Recreation Area (the old state fish hatchery) and Platte River State Park along with a number of other popular tourist points near the interstate. Nebraskans love their parks!
(at one time before the interstate system, you could take U.S. 6 all the way from the tip of Cape Cod to Long Beach! today, the interstate system truncated 6 in the west).
Anyways, please enjoy the ride!

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.
Learning by listening is a great way to:
- increases imagination and understanding
- improves your listening skills
- improves your own spoken accent
- learn while on the move
- reduce eye strain
Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.
