Car Camera - U.S. 136 - Nebraska/Missouri State Line to Auburn, NE . 2013 ( アメリカ国道136号線 )
Autumn! Today we continue our little adventure from earlier today (will be shown in future videos)... on this leg we start from just on the other side of the Nebraska/Missouri state line in Missouri, U.S.A. on U.S. Highway 136, across the historic Brownville Bridge (built in 1939 across the Missouri River) next to Brownville in Nebraska and eventually to Auburn.
We pass near the Cooper Nuclear Power Plant in Brownville (one of two nuclear stations in Nebraska) but unfortunately do not get to see it in this video. Ironically, this power station is the same GE type and model as the one that decided to do the big hiccup in Fukushima, Japan.. not too sure if this is a good thing or not. Thankfully, the difference is is that Cooper has a excelent safety record.
...I find that fact interesting. Anyways, away from power plants and onto roads! Speaking of, U.S. 136 is a sad road between Brownville and Auburn. Sure, it's a little bumpy, but the bad part are the shoulders! Deteriorating and deteriorated in many places, it sets a bad example for a U.S. Highway. The state should address this, especially with how many recreational vehicles use this road to get to Indian Cave State Park.
...and also speaking of, if you ever have the time, take a trip down to Indian Cave State Park (just south on Nebraska Hwy. 67 from 136) - especially during autumn... you won't regret it!
(got to love the little 'ol granny driving the car in front of us just as we enter Auburn... guess that yellow line is a great thing to drive down the middle of @o@ !)
(sorry about the butterfly in the hood...)
Anyways, as always, please enjoy the ride ^^ !!!

The 20 most iconic landmarks in Oregon
What are Oregon's most iconic landmarks? Our travel reporter Jamie Hale ranked his Top 20 places that help define a place in Oregon. If it’s worthy of a postcard, it’s a landmark.
Highway 83 (Kansas)
Highway 83 slices America almost in half, a line running north-south from the U. S. border with Mexico to the border of Canada, descending 1,885 miles from Westhope, North Dakota, to Brownsville, Texas.
It is one of the oldest and longest of the federal highways that hasn’t been replaced by an Interstate and is a major artery in western Kansas where cattle trucks and pickups outnumber the cars.
Author Stew Magnuson, a native of Omaha, has introduced the road to the uninformed with his Highway 83 Chronicles. The latest person to carry the banner for the scenic highway is Texan Keith George.
Keith has been traveling the route with a camera and a drone, making friends and memories along the way, and being transformed in the process. In his little red Corvette, Keith gets noticed in the little towns and communities that line Highway 83.
In fact, while in Oberlin, the Decatur County Sheriff stopped to visit with him. Keith was understandably concerned, and wondered what regulation he had violated.
He was stunned when the sheriff responded; I wanted to bring you a welcome gift! That has been typical of his reception along the road. People have opened their homes and hearts to Keith, a self-described Type A personality who only slows down long enough to click the camera.
His stunning video footage will make people take a second look at places they thought they knew, like our own iconic Monument Rocks, or take a first look at places they have never seen.
What final form Keith's work will take is still a thought in progress. What is a certainty, though, is that his trip has morphed into an experience far beyond anything he could have imagined.
He also assures folks that he will be back. Folks up and down Highway 83 will be watching the horizon for that little red Corvette and making a pot of coffee, ready to visit with someone who is now considered an old friend.
