Nebraska has been crossed off the list. That only leaves Utah, North Dakota, Montana and Connecticut Adventures to plan for the future. In the last 22 years (wow... has it been that long?) we've done some interesting things. Every trip is an adventure and this one was no different. The highlight was, predictably, Tim Bryson's Airboat Tour of the Platt River. After all, add a high horsepower Av Gas fueled engine to a polymer skinned boat that can drive over sand bars, rocks and sunken boats and lake junk and you get an experience.
Add to that the usual Nature Preserves, Aquariums and Zoo's and you get a great BNEA page. Enjoy.

Tim Bryson's Airboat Tour of the Platt River
This was the first day activity and it was the highlight of the trip.
Henry Doorly Zoo
This is a world class facility. We've been to some really good zoos and I
live in San Diego which has the
Fontenelle Nature Center
This is a very nice place. The trails are walkable and the people are nice and the exhibits are really good.
Lauritzen Omaha Botanical Garden
This place is big and requires walking and riding the tram. I think the best time to visit would be in summer when everything is in bloom. It was pretty bare in April but the trains are worth the trip.
DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge
We've been to a lot of Wildlife Refuges and a few of them have interesting exhibits but this is the gold standard of them all. They have a museum with the cargo of an 1860's riverboat that sank up river from their location.
Billy Froggs Bar
A good cheap dinner downtown.
On many trips, we travel to a disappointing destination. Cook Covered
Bridge was the one on this trip.
The Air Force SAC Museum
I was a member of the Air Force Museum in Dayton and this is its mid US cousin. It is a very nice museum. Bruce crashed the space shuttle (I landed it safely!) and we took our official trip photo here.
