Just a quick little anecdote…
On Interstate 80 heading west somewhere between Ogallala, NE and Brule, NE the worst smell crept up to the driver’s seat. My first thought was somebody farted. I knew it wasn’t me, but being polite, I kept my thoughts to myself. However the smell was getting stronger. Being a newbie with the RV, all sorts of other scenarios ran through my mind.
- The toilet trap was stuck open.
- The black tank was leaking somewhere in the RV.
As I contemplated pulling over to investigate one of these horrible scenarios, I looked to my left and saw a stockyard. It was full of cattle, and I would say: cattle manure.
So, if you are traveling that short stretch on I-80 be prepared. The RV was sealed tight with the air conditioner running. Yet the smell came in.
But don’t worry, the smell dissipates after about 30 minutes.

lol! No doubt your dad was having the same thoughts!
My whole family is dying of laughter right now as I read to them your piece. Thank goodness your blog came up when I googled “what’s this horrid smell Ogallala, NE”!
Glad you got some enjoyment from the post.
Had the pleasure (NOT!) of experience this earlier this evening….
Dear Lord…..people actually reside on that stretch!
As a Realtor, I’d say that’s not a plus when it comes to home value! Wowza!!🤢
