please help with my Wyoming-Nebraska plan

Jump to last reply

Thanks in advance for your help.

I think we are planning to do too much driving, but I'm not sure.

Arriving Cheyenne, WY late Friday afternoon, plan to walk around the town on our own or visit the old west museum if it is still open.

The next day we plan to drive to Nebraska. Will take the interstate to Sidney, then get on the scenic road that was once part of the Oregon Trail. Take the road to Allianc, NE to visit the Carhenge site (tacky, yes, that's why we want to visit there). Might spend 30 minutes at Carhenge.

Then backtrack to the Scottsbluff National Historic site. Not really sure how long to plan there.

If possible, would like to visit Fort Laramie and then head back to Cheyenne.

Looking at maps, this seem to be around 500 miles of driving, plus touring in one day. Is this nuts or is it possible? Any suggestions of what to cut -- Carhenge? Oregon Trail route? Ft. Laramie? We don't have any other days because we are leaving Sunday.

Thanks again for your help and suggestions.

Mary C.
