I bet there is a nice Christian Science Reading Room somewhere along the way.

The only thing I know would be to tour the campus (University of Nebraska) and see the 2nd largest city in Nebraska during home football games...

70Chip -- I counted 5 Christian Bookstores in Manassas. Seriously. How does your community support that many!

I kinda expected to get crickets on this one -- CORN RULEZ.

Well there's the Sonic drive in, that place is always hopping. There's the Walmart, plenty of chicks there. There was a bowling alley, but that burned down. And the Tractor Supply probably has their new summer stock in so you HAVE to go check that out.

Actually in downtown Omaha, go to dinner at Omaha Prime. One of the best steaks I have ever eaten.

Hey guys,

Back from my trip. Omaha was pretty depressing. Out here you don't really see the effects of a poor economy. Driving to a taco stand we saw on food network (it was a bit overrated, but not bad) almost every house and business was boarded up. Pretty sad.

Lincoln was a nice town, actually. I learned one important thing while out there. People from DC are ugly. My god, these girls were gorgeous. None of that orange fake tan shit, etc. You can also take a 20 dollar bill out to the bars, and get good and drunk. Imported beers run 1.50, Vodka/Redbull 2.75. Lincoln was a nice town though. Wasn't super crowded but friendly and down home-ish.

I spent most of my time doing Wedding based stuff, but it wasn't a bad place to visit (just stay far, far away from the Spaghetti Warehouse.)
