LINCOLN, Neb. Some holiday travelers today say it's been a great experience.

College student Kelsey Reese is traveling back from L.A. to see her family back in Lincoln for Thanksgiving.

"It's been two Thanksgivings since I've been able to be with my family. So I wanted to spend Thanksgiving with them." Kelsey Reese, Holiday Traveler

She says she didn't travel much for Thanksgiving growing up but now that's different since she lives in L.A.

"If I'm traveling I usually travel by plane, unless I'm going a short distance within like an hour of somewhere."Said Reese

Reese says her trip here was pretty easy.

"Flight was great! I got to sleep on my first flight from L.A. to Denver and then got to Denver and came to Lincoln. It was awesome, I got to talk to some great people and get to know their story." Said Reese

We caught up with holiday travelers Eric and Jade Eby at Shoemakers in West Lincoln. They geared up for a 12 hour drive with their two dogs. They're traveling from Mankato, MN to Denver, CO. They say they don't normally travel this far by vehicle but they wanted to see their friends who are newly married and the weather isn't too bad.

"The weather worked out fine. Gas is cheap. We considered flights because flights are really cheap now too. But we just decided to take our dogs and hop in the car and go." Said Eric & Jade Eby, Holiday Travelers.

All travelers said bad weather wouldn't stop them from making their trips.

"Depends on how much snow. I mean I'm driving a four-wheel drive truck, so we.. You know we talked about it.. Says Eric

"Knowing him he'd just keep plowing on." Jade said

"I don't think it would matter to me." Said Eric

Kelsey Reese says: "I will come here rain or shine. Nebraska is my home."
