Weather: 67 – 85 F Cloudy & Very Very Muggy

We learned that there is really not much to do in North Platte. Nevertheless, we managed to fill up our day quickly.

After a simple breakfast (Toast & Cereal) we went to explore the local Farmer’s Market. (We tried to go yesterday when I thought it was Thursday – but no one was there!!!) Paul really enjoyed the market because the venders were actual farmers selling their wares. We bought a bunch of green onions, Strawberry Bread, a tomato and a hot pepper.

Since the Farmer’s Market was located in the Platte River Mall, we decided to check out it out. Talk about small town. They had a jewelry store and a few others establishments. We walked it in under fifteen minutes. There were very few shoppers and the air conditioner was either off or broken.

We were making Nasi Goreng (Indonesian Fried Rice) for dinner, so we went to the Walmart to pick up the remaining ingredients. Our television in the RV was broken so when we saw one on sale ($118.00), we decided to splurge – there goes our daily $$$ average.

We stopped by Buffalo Bill’s Trading Post – a tourist trap. Yet the staff were friendly, and we ended up buying a T-Shirt and Sign.

After cutting up all the vegetables for our dinner, it was after 4:30 p.m. – Unbelievable.

Wildlife Spotted: just park birds.
