10/02/2011: Day 3: Lincoln to Alliance, NE
As our host had to get up and out for his own 2 week trip, we scurried into Lincoln's Market district and found a coffee house to charge up and check email.
Then on the road. Once out of Lincoln, we chose a route in between the two discussed in our initial route plan and still stayed off the interstates. This way we see more towns and mosey along at barely 70mph.
During the latter part of the day the marked-as-scenic-by-AAA NE Rt-2 finally hit the rolling dunes and sand hills of central Nebraska. But most of the way was flat fields, just as farmers were mowing down the corn stalks. We called it a day in Alliance Nebraska.
