Most of today's journey was going to take place on secondary roads. From North Platte, Nebraska, I would follow US Route 30, the Lincoln Highway, to the town of Ogallala and US Route 26. Two hundred miles later, Rt. 26 would meet up with Interstate 25 near the community of Dwyer Junction, Wyoming. The 50-mile stay on I-25 from Dwyer Junction to Douglas, Wyoming would be my only time on an interstate today. From Douglas, I would follow State Route 59 to my final destination of Gillette, Wyoming.
