A two-day cruise through Nebraska this weekend will cover roughly 500 miles and make stops in 19 cities and towns along the way.
The Nebraska Rod & Custom Association’s Tour Nebraska, an annual cruise in its 29th year, will start from North Platte at 7 a.m. on both June 4 and 5.
Lin Hoskins, the tour coordinator and vice president of the NRCA, previously said the 400-vehicle limit for this year’s cruise was filled in 27 days after the registration opened at midnight on New Year’s Day.
The vehicles must be at least 30 years old to participate under the NRCA guidelines.
The opening day trip will pass through Tryon, Mullen, Valentine and Thedford in a loop before a return to North Platte. The schedule includes a two-hour lunch break in Valentine from 11:30 am until 1:30 pm. The tour should pass through Mullen at about 8:30 am CT and Thedford around 2:45 pm, all on Saturday the 4th.
The trip includes stops in Maywood, Curtis, Farnum, Gothenburg, Arnold, Merna, Broken Bow, Arcadia, Ord, Loup City and Pleasanton. The stops in Arnold and Ord will be the longer visits on the route.
