Hey there, we're @Visit531Nebraska, and we're on a mission to visit all 531 incorporated villages/cities in Nebraska this summer! Find us on Facebook here
Our names are Seth Varner and Austin Schneider, a couple of 2019 graduates out of Wahoo, Nebraska. This fall, we'll be going into our sophomore year at the University of Nebraska-Omaha to continue pursuing our degrees in Business Administration. Due to COVID-19, we found ourselves getting frequently bored, so we decided, "Hey, why not explore our state, and visit all 531 towns in Nebraska?" We hit the road every few days (sometimes with friends) and try to visit as many historical sites, parks, etc. that we can along the way. Due to the outbreak, we try to avoid physically going into any buildings along our journey, or interacting with any people if we can help it. No worries, we've got plenty of Germ-X and Lysol in the car! :)
As you can probably guess, these trips can get very expensive, very quickly-especially for two college students. That's why we're asking for the help of our followers to help fund our adventure across our incredible state. Donation money will be used strictly for the following expenses:
-Gas: As of May 25, 2020, we have traveled nearly 3,000 miles.
-Food: Eating, especially on the road, costs us on average about $10 a meal each!
-Lodging: Although we haven't been required to stay anywhere yet, that day is coming quickly.
-Vehicle Repair: Fingers crossed this doesn't happen, but an unexpected tire repair job or future oil changes need to be accounted for as well!
-At the conclusion of our journey, any remaining funds will be allocated towards our college expenses this fall.
We are incredibly grateful for our 7,000+ followers and all of the support we have received over the past couple of weeks. We thank each and every one of you for your incredible support. What started as a rogue thought has turned into an incredible experience that we’ll remember for the rest of our lives. If you do decide to donate, please, please, please use your first and last name (adding your home town would be cool as well), and send us a message on Facebook so we can have a chat and give you a huge thank you!
