Car Camera - U.S. 136 - Nebraska/Missouri State Line to Auburn, NE . 2013 ( アメリカ国道136号線 )
Autumn! Today we continue our little adventure from earlier today (will be shown in future videos)... on this leg we start from just on the other side of the Nebraska/Missouri state line in Missouri, U.S.A. on U.S. Highway 136, across the historic Brownville Bridge (built in 1939 across the Missouri River) next to Brownville in Nebraska and eventually to Auburn.
We pass near the Cooper Nuclear Power Plant in Brownville (one of two nuclear stations in Nebraska) but unfortunately do not get to see it in this video. Ironically, this power station is the same GE type and model as the one that decided to do the big hiccup in Fukushima, Japan.. not too sure if this is a good thing or not. Thankfully, the difference is is that Cooper has a excelent safety record.
...I find that fact interesting. Anyways, away from power plants and onto roads! Speaking of, U.S. 136 is a sad road between Brownville and Auburn. Sure, it's a little bumpy, but the bad part are the shoulders! Deteriorating and deteriorated in many places, it sets a bad example for a U.S. Highway. The state should address this, especially with how many recreational vehicles use this road to get to Indian Cave State Park.
...and also speaking of, if you ever have the time, take a trip down to Indian Cave State Park (just south on Nebraska Hwy. 67 from 136) - especially during autumn... you won't regret it!
(got to love the little 'ol granny driving the car in front of us just as we enter Auburn... guess that yellow line is a great thing to drive down the middle of @o@ !) (sorry about the butterfly in the hood...)
Anyways, as always, please enjoy the ride ^^ !!!

Car Camera - NE 33 - U.S. 77 Interchange to Crete, NE . 2013 ( ネブラスカ州道33号線 )
Today we go into the countryside again... this time on Nebraska Highway 33 here in Nebraska, U.S.A., from the U.S. Hwy. 77 interchange to just inside Crete.
This highway is a pretty one... unlike the preview photo in the video window, this highway traverses along the rolling Great Planes of Nebraska. It is beautiful but makes for a bit of a bear when you get behind someone you can't pass because of the hills & traffic :p . Once we get to about the Lancaster/Saline County line, the highway becomes more flat because here we enter the Big Blue River valley (or as some call it, the Big muddy hahah~).
The highway has been worked over recently because of shifting concrete slabs (as can be seen by the retrofitted rebar strips at the pavement joints) and is in pretty good shape. The only thing that is a bit baffling are the shoulders... these have been worked over several times to prevent the deterioration we now see once again. I wonder what's up with these shoulders? Were they added later to the highway and not original??? Hmmm.....
(I took a video of this highway about a year ago on a different camera, but it was so out of focus I had to discard it... this time though, success!)
Anyways, please enjoy and please notice the changing trees while you can ^_^ (before the leaves all fall, *sigh* ~winter~.....)!
