Nebraska is seriously a nightmare. I have to drive from Iowa to Colorado at least once a year, and every moment in Nebraska makes me want to kill myself. Although I did have a Runza for the first time last summer and it was good.
you're splitting a strange hair there, because everything between Chicago and Devner on 1-80 is terrible, including Illinois and Iowa.

I will recommend, if you have some time next time, to get off at highway 2 in grand island and take the sand hills highway. The platte river valley is just one long corn field , broken up only by soy fields. But that field extends from Colorado to Chicago, so that you'd hate nebraska specifically, and not Iowa is strange to me. However, once you get north of the Platte river valley on highway 2, it's actually a rather lovely drive, rolling hills and absolutely no one is on the road, so you can really fly. I took it for the first time on my way to Alliance for the Eclipse and it was a delight.

The people, however, in the places I stopped along that highway, were an absolute nightmare. There was this one small town that had no business district, but it did have a house, painted hazard orange and black, that said "Guns, Ammo and Silencers" I didn't even know silencers were legal at the time. This was in the absolute middle of no where, it was shocking to me. Made me wonder if there was like a John Wick-style assassin community living out in the sandhills.

I get that, but I actually really like the look of Iowa's terraced cornfields and rolling hills. It looks very different than Illinois or Nebraska from a topographical standpoint along I-80. I get that different parts of every state could be pretty, but I only care about the views on I-80.


Also, I'm super biased because Iowa is my home.


Also, I'll check out your route suggestion. If it doesn't add more than a couple hours to Denver, I might give it a shot. EDIT: I just looked and there is no way I could give that road a shot, as I'm heading to Denver and that is the wrong direction.

I've been through Nebraska once and saw the rolling sand hills. Was really strange, because I didn't expect those at all. Kept seeming like the ocean would be right over the next hill.

Was driving Denver, CO to Pierre, ND. Know I took I-76 east...can't quite remember exactly where I cut north.

Edit: Dug up the route...

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's through Cherry County, in the heart of the sandhills. Cherry is a bigger than a couple states, it's the biggest county in Nebraska by far

Essay's Top Ten Keanu Reeves Movies

1. Speed
2. Point Break
3. John Wick
4. John Wick 2
5. The Matrix
6. Street Kings
7. The Replacements
8. The Matrix Reloaded
9. The Devil's Advocatre
10. Constantine


I finally saw point break, and it will slide in at number 2, just below speed. The Matrix Revolutions has been stricken from the record - IT NEVER EXISTED.

No way it doesn't beat Speed. I don't even understand how you could think that without laughing at yourself. I know that early 90's Sandra was awesome (as was the show stealer Dennis Hopper), but having a bus jump 50 feet only going 70mph without a ramp? That's too much of a plot hole for me. Point Break is 1000x better.

Point Break would be better if Sandy had been in it too. But they cast some ugly lesbian and blew it. Amazing ending though.
