‘American Pickers’ host makes stop in Gering
GERING — Scotts Bluff County Register of Deeds Jean Bauer said it was a quiet Friday morning at work when some of her office staff started looking at someone waiting in line at the Treasurer’s Office.
“Everyone was telling me he looked like Mike Wolfe from ‘American Pickers,’” Bauer said. “We were all afraid to ask, so we conned the maintenance guy to ask if it was him.”
It was. Mike Wolfe from the television program “American Pickers” was at the county administration building with two members of his crew, who were securing titles to vehicles they had purchased.
“When we learned who it was, everyone swarmed out into the lobby to say hello,” Bauer said. “He was a really nice guy and was more than willing to get his picture taken with us.”
It was a brief stop for Wolfe and his crew. After they got the vehicles titled, they were off to the Wildcat Hills Nature Center to take a look at an antique motorcycle. Then it was back on the road.
