All of us have special events and happening that occur during the course of a year.

What was thee most amazing experience in 2017 for you? Share it if you're so inclined on the Quick Country Facebook Page.
We'd like to know just how awesome your year was!

Was it the birth of a child? A promotion at work? You got married. You checked off an item on your bucket list. You won at the casino! Or maybe you met an influential person or celebrity, or attended a concert that blew you away. Whatever it was, lets put together a list and share some positive vibes in hopes that it will spill over into 2018 and we will all have another awesome New Year!


I realize that only a small percentage will share their experiences in an open forum, but I also know that the Quick Country faithful are a loyal lot, and will always come through when it's time to put the rubber to the road.

Happy New Year from all of us at Quick Country 96-5!

For me, I became a grandpa for the 4th time, met some awesome new friends, attended some fantastic LIVE shows, and because I've always been a science nerd of sorts, I had a chance to experience the Great American Eclipse back in August with a whirlwind trip to the heart of the full eclipse zone in central Nebraska. I'm a photography enthusiast as well.

Below are some of the once-in-a-lifetime photos I was able to shoot. I won't bore you with all the details leading up to this whole quickly arranged trip. With the little bit of pre-planning I did do, along with a little luck to boot, I was able to experience an event I may never get to see ever again.....A TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN, smack-dab in the middle of the zone that would give me a whopping 2 minutes & 24 seconds of totality. ~FLASHBACK~
