and you see the exit for Ogallala, take it.

Make your way to Trail's End Gifts at 502 E 1st St and check out the Ogallala Bay Rum products they carry! Recently, on our way back from visiting the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Zion national parks, i did just that. I saw the exit coming up about a hour ahead so I called OBRCo to find out if they had any retail outlets. They didn't, but John did tell me of a store in Ogallala that carried a pretty good selection of products. When I stopped there, this is what I saw:

I loved being able to smell the products first hand, and avoid delivery charges. I was not in need of any soap, so I picked up the Bonanza Pack of aftershave and colognes (Five 2oz bottles for $18) and a bar of Bay Rum bath and shampoo bar for $7.

The gal there was very nice, mentioned they were low on product and remarked at how well the the OBR stuff was selling and even started to fill out a reorder sheet while I was there.

I wish I had picked up some of the OBR air freshener now. That'd be nice to spray in my truck now and again.

SWEET Sav. I would probably have gotten some soap anyway though. Tongue

My daughter wants to check out a few colleges in Colorado (she's a high school senior this fall), so there will be ample opportunity for additional acquisitions. Wink

Anything else to see in that part of Nebraska? Might need to make a weekend road trip.

Johnny,

We didn't spend much time stopping in Nebraska, outside of pit stops and stopping at this gift shop. Ogallala itself has some interesting history to it if you're interested in the old west. They have a "boot hill", and there looks to be a historical district across the street from the gift shop. As a former avid reader of Louis L'amour and Zane Gray, I would have enjoyed spending more time in town, but our schedule woudln't allow it.
