From the Tour: Headed to the Rockies
8:00AM - Chicago, Illinois

Back on the road and continuing our trek West. There are a lot of miles between the Windy City and the small town in Nebraska, which is our next stop. At least we have great weather for the drive!

6:30AM - Indianola, Nebraska

Visiting with Jim Gaster was like stepping back in time. Jim is a Cooper - he makes buckets, barrels and other containers out of wood, using the traditional methods - no power tools.

Coopering is pretty rare nowadays. In fact, Jim had to actually make most of his own tools to practice his craft, from diagrams he found in old books.
