  Congrats Buddy,  now if the rest of the states could convince their legislators to do the same this country could get back to it's Constitutional roots.   :thumbsup:

Hmmm.

Another we stole the Indians land and the railroads duped the homesteaders viewpoint.

Other than those two observations it was interesting. 

I did not know that Nebraska had more miles of river than any other State. 

Now a question, and don't look the answer up. Which State in the Union has the highest low point?

My guess would be Denali in Alaska.

Alaska has land at sea level.  The State with the highest low point is Colorado.  It's SE corner is the low point of the State and higher than any other States low point. 

It would be hard to come up with a more useless piece of information.  I used to quail hunt in that area and someone mentioned that fact in a place we were eating at.

Here's a list (with photos) of all of the high/low points of every state in the U.S.

Some of you may remember when I posted me climbing over 300 ft above sea level.  It was hard to find.  Highest point in FL.  Grueling.
huh?

Tony, I looked up 'Britton Hill,' the highest peak in Florida and I can see what a grueling climb it must have been for you! :lol:   Looked almost as harrowing as the highest peak in Nebraska.  I failed to mention that that link that I provided also lists the coordinates for each low/high point...nice to have so you know when you reach the summits for the best views. ;)

Nuff said about "presentation".

I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

Once again, my grade school teachers would be sorely disappointed at my reading skills.  I somehow missed the word low.  My guess would have not been Colorado.

You are not an orphan.  I did it first time they asked me too.

A nice little capsule report on Nebraska I think.  I think western Nebraska is a lot like western South Dakota, eastern Wyoming and eastern Colorado.  A great place to live if you don't like crowds, nightclubs, and tall buildings.

He does a good job covering the bases but does leave out a few important things like Wolfy and my trip last fall and our upcoming run to somewhere this year.

Yeah, there were a few more that I wish he'd included, too, but all told I thought it was a pretty good synopsis.  That guy's YouTube channel is really well done and I highly recommend it. :thumbsup:
