The main artery for those living Nebraska's good life, Interstate 80, parallels the famous Platte River. It allows your tires to hum effortlessly along where covered wagons strained a century ago. If thoughts of pioneer days tickle your fancy, then tempt yourself with these names.. .Buffalo Bill, Crazy Horse, Gen. Custer, Chimney Rock, Pony Express, the first transcontinental railroad, the first free homestead, Scotts 'Bluff National Monument, Ft. Robinson and Ft. Kearny. To bring history closer to today there's a richly-equipped Aerospace Museum next to the Strategic Air Command headquarters near Bellevue. While we've got you close to Omaha, let's take a look. You remember the line, "He ain't heavy, he's my brother." It was made famous at Father Flanagan's Boys Town. Joslyn, one of the nation's finest art museums is open year- round. Nearby is a gem for railroad buffs -- at Union Pacific Museum. Also handy to the traveler is the richly-endowed Henry Doorly Zoo, nationally acclaimed for its setting and diversity of species on exhibit. Since you're on the Missouri River at Omaha, the state's eastern boundary, you can go north, south or west. Driving south along the river you'll encounter some of the state's earliest history and greatest beauty. Nebraska City, the home of Arbor Lodge, is surrounded by apple orchards which epitomize J. Sterling Morton's belief in the beauty of trees that culminated in nationaly-observed Arbor Day. South a few more miles at tiny, old Brownville, there's a rare oppor- 1 tunity to ride one of the last of the ; stern wheelers, the Belle of Brown. ville. .JIMwk. West of Omaha is the state's capital city, Lincoln. There's talk that the capitol was stolen in the dark night over a century ago and moved from Omaha. Whatever happened, the result today is a 440-foot statehouse that is acclaimed as an international architectural wonder. The Children's Zoo, the State Historical Society Museum, the University of Nebraska State Museum and Sheldon Art Gallery are all prime capital city attractions. Continuing on 1-40 to Grand Island and Hastings, you can feel the land opening up and hinting of the open sky "Wild West" that lies ahead. You'll want to visit the Stuhr Museum of Prairie Pioneer and envelop yourself in the nostalgia of an 1890's railroad town. The Hastings Museum is within easy driving distance on U.S. 281. At Grand Island, you'll have to decide whether to follow Nebraska Highway 2 through the real cow country of the Sandhills and its lonely beauty or continue on 1-80. If cow country is your choice, you'll pass the north edge of the totally man-planted Halsey National Forest. You'll spy deer, waterfowl and a myriad of wild species among the hundreds of lakes that dot the grasslands. By the time you reach the richly-forested Chadron State Park, you'll know why Nebraska is called the "Beef State." In the park you can find campgrounds, delightful guest cabins, a swimming pool, horseback riding and much more. Just west of Chadron near Crawford you'll discover the West of old at Ft. Robinson, one of the best kept, largest and historically rich Army forts of the Frontier. Chief Crazy Horse, Indian hero of the Battle of the Little Big Horn was killed here. Turning south from Crawford on Nebraska Highway 71, you will see · Scotts Bluff National Monument, one of the most famous sites on the Oregon Trail. A't Mitchell Pass, just alongside the monument, you can still see the wagon ruts cut into the sandstone. From the summit of the bluff you can see another landmark of the Oregon Trail, the unique spire of Chimney Rock. South on Highway 71, you quickly encounter the Wildcat Hills with its rugged natural beauty, state recreation area, and game refuge. Buffalo still roam there, along with deer, elk and other wildlife. At Kimball, a few miles south of the Wildcat range, you are back on 1-80 again. bigger and better Wild West shows. You can even watch a film clip Thomas Edison made of one of the shows. During August you can see a live version of the real thing at the Wild West Arena. At Ogallala, the West still lives on at Front Street, May through September, with dancing "saloon girls" and the whole bit. Just north of this All-American city is "Big Mac" -- Lake McConaughy, a 22-mile long man-made lake full of fish and fun. Is all this Nebraska? Yes, but it's a long way from all of it.

Box 4246 HAMPTON, Vl.RGIMA Remember when you were on the Interstate at Grand Island? If you had chosen to continue west on the super highway, you would very soon have reached the short turnoff to reconstructed Ft. Kearney. South of the fort on Nebraska Highway 10 at Minden is world-famed Pioneer Village, one of the most popular attractions on the Old West Trail. An authentic station of the colorful Pony Express is within the city limits of Gothenburg, standing little different than it did over 100 years ago. West again and, just off the Interstate is Ft. McPherson . National Cemetery where you could spend hours reading history from tombstones like... "Here lie four bodies, found along the trail." North Platte is the home of fabled Buffalo Bill.
