This is a very doable road trip for me, coming from northern Colorado, so may have to see if I can swing it. There's also a neat little military vehicle museum in Lexington, NE, which is very much worth the stop if you're passing that way.

Been travelling for a week and missed this.  I just moved to Grand Island NE from a smaller town in North central Nebraska so I'm only a couple hours away!!!  I am so there!  Cornhusker modelers unite!

Ironically, when I wrote the post above^^^ I had no plans to move to the Pacific Northwest. A little more than a 'doable road trip' for me now. LOL Have fun, guys!

My wife and I went to Omaha this weekend to watch our Aggies in the College World Series. Really nice city with a dynamic downtown scene. Plenty of great restaurants too.

Due to work schedule I will only be able to attend Friday's gathering.  Meaning I will drive up from San Antonio on Thursday and drive back on Saturday. 

There is good news in this.  The wife was willing to spend $700 bucks so I won't have to drive 2,000 miles in three days.  So I said, the heck with that if you are willing to spent $700 bucks I will drive and save myself $500 dollars to put to the purchase of new kits.  Man 0 man I hope their are a few great ship kits for sale when I get there on Friday.
