Erl, yep, there's a highway and it's got a good shoulder on the side as 
well. Not a lot of bike shops up that way, but if you need help, Nebraskans 
(Midwesterners in general) will give you a lift to the nearby towns.

I think your Schwables will be fine w/o any sealant. I have a pair of 35c 
Schwalbes that I just dedicate to do RAGBRAI every year, 4 years going 
strong, I think 2 flats total over the years. I also have 42c Schwalbe 
Marathons I use for commuting/general riding/gravel riding...last year, I 
did 12k on them - zero flats....ZERO!

Have fun man! Make sure to meet some locals, they make the trip memorable
