    That's great! I've driven by that stadium and that place is huge!

    I like your quote at the bottom of your page...

    Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    It reminds me of another quote...

    Knowledge is knowing there's vinegar in the water bottle. Wisdom is not drinking from that water bottle.

    Have a good one, WB!

    I had tried to erase the vinegar incident from my mind until you reminded me of it.

    I can still hear you coughing/choking! Sam and I still talk about it once in a while. It was one of those moments where I felt incredibly bad for you but it was also very funny.

    Take Care.

    Update on a date for this hang? I don't know if I'll be able to squeeze it in. Heavy production time, Halloween on Monday and my wifes birthday the Monday before. But I've got a buddy up in Omaha that I'm motorcycling to Oshkosh with and we were talking about hitting the park sometime this year, just haven't had a chance.

    Would be good to get out there, though in October I think I'll need to get an underquilt made. Eh, could go either way. It's been rainy and cold (more typical) and sweltering hot (not so typical but easy to put the decorations up with).

    Date change?

    When I suggested the Indian Caves hang the last weekend in October, I had not checked to see what the Nebraska Football schedule was. I find now that we have a home football game with Michigan State.
    I'm going to miss the Ohio State game going to the Nascar races in Kansas City on October 8. I don't want to miss two games the first year that Nebraska is in the Big 10.
    Would a week earlier on the weekend of October 22 work for other persons that plan to attend? The Spook Fest will be that weekend. Most of the people there for the Spook Fest are RV'ers or in tents in the camp grounds.
    Last year while walking the trails only found one guy camped at one of the shelters.

    The 22nd will work for me (at least for now). Will this be car camping or backpacking? Either of which is fine with we

    I had thought that we would backpack to the bluff that over looks the river that has all of the shelters. There are a couple of outhouses there.
    It's probably only a 30 minute walk, almost car camping. We then could day hike trails from there or move to other locations.
    I'm open to other suggestions.

    Well I graduated from Kansas State with the BS and MS. Then moved to Nebraska and worked for the University of Nebraska. In Nebraska there is only the Huskers.
    But still keep a little purple in the heart.
