I wanted to go see the train tracks nearby for I could hear the trains go by very infrequently.
I always imagine myself long ago being a hobo walking the tracks when I stand by them.
I stood there for a long time studying the switch thing from one track over to the side track trying to figure out how it worked. Guess I’ll have to go back and watch some YouTube video to understand it.
I had to walk through all the dense growth and cross over a deep dry creek bed to get to the tracks. I passed by an automobile graveyard along the way and would check it out more closely on the way back.
All of the wrecked cars were from the 1930’s and 40’s.
Sure would be nice to know the story behind this and how they all wound up here.
And so we said goodbye to Karrer Park and McCook, Nebraska.
You both have been very good to us.
Sorry we stayed longer than three days.
I left you a donation to make a sign to warn bicycle tenters about the sprinklers.
I mentioned on the previous post about how happy we were the hail missed us.
This is what hail does to an Airstream trailer.
These folks are from Nebraska and stayed a couple days in the park.
From that same storm on the post about the Swiss bike riders.
Good thing we left Oberlin when we did.
Thank you A for sending these images.
Then McCook gave us a parting gift for our last night there.
No damage although very unnerving. Now I know the solar panels can withstand ping pong ball size hail.
Beans just calmly laid up in her loft throughout the deafening noise.
What a brave little girl she is.

I kind of jumped the gun on Beans’ recovery. She had a couple wheezes since but nothing like it has been. I planned to continue the prescribe (prednisolone) anyway for a few more doses at every other day. The over the counter antihistamine the Yuma doc suggested if it ever flared up again is Chlorpheniramine 4mg. (a people drug) cut in half twice a day. I think it had no effect.
