Omaha isn't a typical tourist destination. But last week we took no ordinary vacation. Instead, we took a 9-day, 2,213-mile road trip to Omaha, Kansas City and St. Louis, with a detour to Oklahoma.
The trip started as a way for Paul to attend Berkshire Hathaway's annual shareholders meeting in Omaha. It expanded to include visits to three states that I had never been to (Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma), bringing my total to 42. Paul also added Missouri. Edith added all of the above plus Illinois. Atticus added six new states -- all of the above, plus Indiana too.
All in all, we spend around 30 hours in the car (probably more) with no major meltdowns, so SUCCESS. When it comes to what we did all week, I should call this our "B" vacation: Berkshire, barbecue, beer and baseball.
Off and on over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing some of our highlights from the trip, including a visit to the Gateway Arch, selfies from the Oklahoma state line, our day at the Berkshire Hathaway meeting and SO MUCH FOOD.
Enjoy. I know we did.
