Goin’ Tankin’ on TV

Don’t miss my Weekly Outdoor Report airing on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News LIVE this Thursday evening at 6 p.m. CST during the station’s sportscast when we float a Nebraska river in a livestock watering tank. Seriously!

WOWT 6 Sports Director Ross Jernstrom prepares to film friends and I ready to go tanking on the Elkhorn River near Waterloo, NE.

We’ll cover why floating scenic Nebraska rivers in livestock watering tanks is so popular. It is something unique and fun to do outdoors with your family or friends this summer. A listing of river outfitters and rental businesses is available here.
