Guess the route?

A new beginning

Guess the route?

Postby gif4445 » Thu Nov 01, 2018 9:12 am

Even if I go it alone, I'm venturing guesses as to BRAN 39. Even if I get blown out of the saddle come November 14 and the big reveal, I'm still guessing. I guess I like to guess. Thinking along the lines of going routes we haven't been on in awhile, plus acknowledging daily mileage has been reduced in recent years (on basically all the state rides, not just BRAN), my first guess was:

Alliance-Hyannis-Thedford-Callaway-Loup City-Central City-David City-Yutan.

After looking at the theme of 39(Tale of two Trails), I'm revising my guess (duh) implementing two scenic byways. Sandhills Journey and Loup Rivers. So the modified guess is:

Ft. Robinson-Alliance-Hyannis-Thedford-Burwell-St. Paul-David City-Yutan.

I acknowledge some weak points in this guess, but maybe I'll change it tomorrow. Maybe, I guess.

Your right there are a lot of weak spots. Still have 10 days to go. I am looking forward to dissecting the route after it has been revealed. It is hard for me to keep it secret.

Ok I'll play along. I too love to try to figure out the route so here goes nothing. Fort Robinson/Crawford, Gordon, Valentine, Niobrara, Petersburg, Fullerton, Brainard, Waterloo. This would let us ride the highway or the cowboy trail. Or I could be way off and the 2 trails are Oregon and Morman trails. Can't wait to find out and ride it.

Rickey Rickey Rickey good to hear from you. See you on the 14th. Until then you will never know how close or how far away your guess is. By the way there are many pioneer trails in Nebraska. One further hint we will be going West to East, at least kind of.

A LOT of weak spots? Man, I didn't think I was that bad at guessing. Well actually, I knew I wasn't very good. So here is the 3rd try. Or strike as it may be.

Scottsbluff-Alliance-Hyannis-Thedford-Callaway-St. Paul-Shelby-Yutan

After looking at this, I'm pretty sure this one is spot-on, can't miss, the real deal. It had better be, cuz #4 is a doozy.

About 36 hours to the route reveal . Get your guesses in or not. The executive board had a meeting last night to finalize the announcement. I am not a big party boy but am looking forward to meeting many of you . Stop by and say hay. As usual I will be the best looking guy there. Food and drinks furnished. Party starts at 5:45 and the meeting at 6:30. Bike Rack Omaha. Real name Frank Perrone.

I'm having some fun with this, as you can tell Granny! If I can get 3 or 4 right, I will consider it a success. Maybe 2 correct would be a moral victory.

Number 4. I'm not sure if anyone is really ready for route guess #4.

They came by the thousands for the reveal party, ok by the tens. the route was announced . These are the towns , full information and maps will follow here and on Facebook. Start in Chadron then Gordon, Cody, Ainsworth, Atkinson, Neligh, Clarkson, and Fremont. Along with riding the road there are portions that riders can use the Cowboy Trail. Have heard that they are called gravel grinders. Registration will be open soon.

When will the more detailed route maps come out? Interested in the route from Snyder to Fremont, hopefully 275 isn't being considered.

The exact roads have not been verified yet. Once we feel that the safest route has been chosen we must then check with the department of roads to find out if we would encounter any problems. I will check with the route czar to find out if he has not finalized everything , when can we expect it to be done. A note we have gotten approval and then at the last minute had to change it . Sorry I could not give you a definite answer at this time. By the way do you have any suggestions?

If it is going through Scribner and Hooper I really don't have any suggestions other than HWY275 for a paved road. Once you get a few miles past Scribner the road turns into a divided 4 lane expressway to Fremont which may not be that bad with the wide shoulders and extra lanes for vehicles to move over. The stretch on 275 from the HWY91 junction to a few miles past scribner appears to have a shoulder but if I recall it is pretty beat up and that stretch of road is very busy.

The current plan is Howells, Dodge, Snyder, Scribner, Hooper, and Nickerson. There will be additional review as time goes on.
