OMAHA (KPTM)- Thirty-Three million Americans are expected to take a trip over the Labor Day weekend.
AAA said that's up about three-percent from last year. Lower airfares mean more people are flying, and despite higher gas prices, more people are hitting the roads.
Higher temperatures and lower water levels weren't keeping outdoor lovers away from campgrounds and lakes either.
"You can walk all the way across," said John McClain while pointing at the Platte River.
McClain and his family are camping at Twin Rivers in Waterloo, Neb. He said the campground is crowded, despite the river being so low.
"A week ago this was all sand across here, hardly a trickle," said McClain.
Other campers said, the heat won't keep them from one of their favorite pastimes. "I like my bike, I ride over here, I take my morning walk," said one camper, Mary Braley.
Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 80s and 90s all weekend, which is perfect water weather, said one camper, except there's not much water to go around. "Last night and today we've seen one airboat go by," said Jeff Ostrand. "That's pry about all you can get down the river, it's so low."
