Hello, Three of us are planning to ride from Seattle to Omaha next June. I think we might use the Cowboy Trail to cross NE. Two questions: 1. Will we have to worry about goatherds that time of year? (She asks, hoping the answer is no) 2. Any advice about getting from Norfolk to Omaha? And where is the bunkhouse?

There is always the potential for goat heads in the summer, just have to be prepared. To get from Norfolk to Omaha, take a look at NDOT's bike map. It shows highway usage so you can pick a route with low traffic. https://dot.nebraska.gov/media/7032/bicycle-map-side-2.pdf I think you're referring to the Long Pine Bunkhouse? If so: https://goo.gl/maps/NEnUHrm9gbxqBcy78

Go tubeless and as others have mentioned don't pull them out. I was on a section of it last weekend in the longpine/valentine area with no issues.
