Not too long after I hit the interstate that I found another house.. This one was located far to the right in the middle of a farm field. again it was far enough into the distance that I wasn't a hundred percent sure on whether or not it was abandoned, but I did notice what looked like a missing window.. I knew I had to get to the house and I knew that I needed to figure out how to do it!!
Almost instantly after seeing the house I saw an exit off the Interstate (don't remember the number) and before I knew it I was driving down a dirt road toward the house.
I was a bit timid in entering the house at first. while walking around the exterior I came across a porch, which I thought would be an easy entrance, but the wooden floor was extremely delicate to the lightest pressure of my foot... However when I found the front door was easy to open inside the house I went! :P
Inside I found some pretty darn cool stuff! lots of old shoes, a massive pile of working gloves, an old wood/coal burning stove and a strange object that has been a source of debate between my father and I.
It was hard to tell when the last occupants left the house, but I am guessing some time in the 60's.. This is based on the condition of the building along with the items found..
I didn't go upstairs since they were mostly rotted out.. I was kinda curious to what was up there. with all the cool stuff downstairs I bet there had to be something really interesting upstairs!
After an hour I knew I had to leave and finally head east to Iowa..
Goodbye Nebraska! See you soon! ;P
