Vegas to Minneapolis road trip - Bourbon to see?
Just wanted to throw this out and see if anyone had anything much to say:
I am currently in Las Vegas and will be leaving here Friday morning en route to Minneapolis. We are planning to spend a night in Grand Junction, Colorado and a night in Grand Island, Nebraska (trying to make it a grand trip as you can see :slappin: ). I guess the main freeways we'll be on would be the 15, the 70, 80 and then the 35.
SO just curious, I am not going to have much time of course but, is there any stores of note along the way that may have a good selection of bourbon? I'd love to pick up something that I am not able to get or check out a dusty shelf along the way.
If anybody lives along this route anywhere and knows of a place I should stop at please let me know. Thanks!
Sorry, I tried to get this road trip through Kentucky, I swear, I did, I really really tried, but the girlfriend just wasn't buying that would be the most efficient path of travel...:rolleyes:

It's tongue-in-cheek time. :grin:
As both a former Californian (31 years) and an ex-Kansan/Illinoisian (10/20 years) I am in a position to help you out here.
Folks back there don't "guess" much; they usually "reckon".
The highways you mentioned are called "Interstates" or even "four-lanes", not freeways. Instead of "the 70" it's more common to say "I-70".
In my day Californians were regarded as foreigners but were treated with respect. However, that respect was immediately diminished when it turned out that the visitor had never met any movie stars.
Expanding on your Grand Time theme, while in the midwest you might work in side trips to Grandview Plaza, KS and Grand Tower, IL. En route home you might want to swing south through Arizona, where we have a grand feature that is unique on the planet.
Here's hoping you really do have a grand time. :toast:
