Fairgrounds.  We and our friends Kirk and Beth headed out early from Boone to avoid the afternoon wind machine, and got to Kearny just after 1100 am.  After a little confusion at first, we all got settled in and hooked up, ready to start our stay here in Nebraska.  The rest of our group came rolling in throughout the day.
