[aprssig] APRS Desert?

Did a 1000 mile road from my QTH to Kearney,NB and back yesterday.  
(glad I don't do that often!)

I was really surprised to find out that there's virtually no APRS  
activity in NB along I-80. I saw no stations being heard on the radio  
stn list (VX8) and for awhile I thought my radio was broken! It  
wasn't  until I got back into CO in the range of the mountains that I  
started seeing call signs in the calls-heard list again.  I thought I  
would have heard at least a few trackers on RVs, trucks or hams in  
general along I-80 but nothing?  Grand Island was the only object  
heard/seen. Sure glad to be back in CO where there's plenty APRS  
activity! Or so it appears?
73, Steve/wG0AT
