Best thing to do in Nebraska if you only had one day?                                              
Drive North/Northwest until you find a beach.  Then as you realize there is no beach, enjoy the scenery.  The night sky is actually gorgeous.  Also, find a friend or pretend to be a friend of someone who lives on a lake and enjoy.

Most fond residency experience or memory up to this point?                                               
Too many to choose from, but my most recent good residency experience was hanging out with co-residents, our pups and family at Dr Tape's pool party; an annual event for his Clinic and Inpatient Teams.
