July 10, 2011. Our drive today was all "I-way", 220 miles total, I-80 all the way from Sidney to Grand Island. Maybe the heat was getting to me, as I only took 11 photos the entire day. Really. Shocking, isn't it??
Five of the photos were of this amazing rig we spied in the campground at Sidney before we pulled out. Can we say, L*O*N*G?? Whew? I see 2 air conditioners, a built in roof satellite dome, solar panels on that raised section almost to the back. That raised section intrigues me to no end! LOL It is configured like farm or horse trailers, with that gooseneck pin. One slide out.
From the other side: 2 solar panels (easier to see in this photo), 2 side entry doors. The very back of the rig has 2 doors that open with a large ramp. Toy haulers and horse trailers use this configuration. Note the small window that is open, opening from the outside and one small pooch sniffing the ground.
And, this is what they use to tote that baby down the road:
We did not stop to chat with these folks, it was early, and we just wanted to get on the road. Would have loved to chat tho, I have so many questions - -
The scenery today is typical midwest, so different than Utah and Yellowstone.
Love this. We did not stop. I did not photographically source the mile markers or any other signs. Obviously it is a rest area, with a walkway bridge between the two sides of the highway. Google image searches and Google searches in general did not turn up any additional data, I'll just bet my MOC friend Jan knows more. Fill us in Jan.
Zoomed in on that silver at the top, pushing the limits of the camera and the photo editing software, so, not well focused, but fabulous:
We would stop near Grand Island for a couple of nights, rest, catch up on laundry, shop for necessities and Rally goodies. The heat continues and it will get much worse - -
