Alaska is pretty much planned. The trip up through the lower forty-eight, through Canada, around an Alaska loop, and back down through Canada, all done. What we lack is the route coming home through the lower 48. We know we will be tired. It will be August when it is the most dry and hot in the American mid-west. We know we will most likely want to just GO HOME after overdosing on the amazing Alaskan scenery and cool air chill. BUT... It's hard to book single nights to bee-line home when we may never be through certain states again. It's hard to drive full-tilt though states that have amazing people and hidden treasures. What if we miss something?!?!

We know we will be exhausted, and we will have seen some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. It will be time to GO HOME, collect our thoughts, and write. Stopping in Nebraska simply because we fear missing something will not benefit the journey. If something there catches our eye, it deserves its own adventure, and we will make that in the future.
