The March 21, 1913, edition of The Holyoke Enterprise reported that “one of the worst wrecks on this line of the Burlington” occurred March 16 at Venango, Nebraska. The train was made to open the road for traffic between Sterling and Holdrege, Nebraska, and consisted of a pilot snow plow, small engine, car loaded with coal, engine and caboose. The train was just passing through Venango and was making a run for a snow drift when the snow plow dropped down and struck a heavy iron pin which had been placed in the yards by surveyors when the track was laid out. The first engine turned over and landed about 100 feet from the track, instantly killing the engineer and badly scalding the fireman, both of Sterling. — source: Phillips County Museum

Give backyard camping a try this summer. It can give kids a chance to get comfortable with the idea of camping in general, and it allows adults to practice things like pitching the tent. A bit of practice will make it a whole lot easier to handle the inevitable hiccups experienced on a real camping trip.

Try backyard camping for a summer that’s truly in tents

School’s out, the weather’s nice, and it just feels like it’s time to go camping, doesn’t it?
