FIELDS TRIP
Interstate 80 Nebraska

Interstate 80 spans 2,900 miles across the United States. It begins in San Francisco and ends in New York City. On Day One of the Fields Trip, I drove Interstate 80 from U.S. 81 near York, Nebraska, to Omaha; and on Day Two, I drove the highway between Omaha and Interstate 380 near Iowa City, Iowa.
