We made it to Sindey, NE like we wanted to and are all setup with 50 amp electrical hookup at Cabela’s.
The wind started to pick up during the last 75 miles and the temperature has been dropping. We are getting wind gusts up to 50 mph and it is down to 20° out… I’m hoping it calms down a bit before we leave in the morning. We don’t want to unhook the Jeep in the cold wind, so I made supper in the MoHo. Prepared some hot dog sized turkey sausages with sun dried tomatoes in a frying pan. Served them with hot dog buns and a side of tortilla chips… Not fancy, but was tasty and easy… Plus did not use much water washing dishes. Was hoping they would have water on here so we could top off the fresh water tank. We should be ok, but will need to take quick on-and-off shower in the morning..
The campground has free wifi – so John has been checking out the various weather websites to see what we are up against tomorrow. Looks like it is going to continue being windy, but no snow until we get to the Salt Lake City area. Not sure how far we will make it tomorrow – the windy conditions and mountainous terrain will probably slow us down. Fighting the wind takes alot out of John so we may have to stop more often to give him a break..
During the high winds today the satellite dish hardware on the ceiling kept making irritating noises. I can usually quiet it down by shoving business cards and old credit cards in it’s various openings – but today nothing seemed to help much. John just spent some time tightening up some connections in hope it will be better tomorrow.
Not sure how many blog postings I will be able to do tomorrow – will depend on if we have internet connection with the iPhones or not. I will try to type up the postings before we go through larger cities and then upload it as we go through. My theory is that the larger cities will probably have 3g or 4g internet enabled….
I’m going to read for a bit and get to bed a bit early. It’s only 8:10pm here – went through the first time zone change – but my eyes are getting tired. I’m sure John will want to get an early start in the morning….
