Yesterday we had our tour with Jim. It was simply amazing. As we drove to Tombstone we saw some wild Mustangs and pulled off the main route to see some planes crop dusting. We then stopped at Boot Hill Cemetery then off to the town of Tombstone. Tombstone is really about the history and everything has a fee. We went to the Bird Cage Theater where the lady was rude to Jim and there was no reason for her to be. We saw some interesting things such as a merman and bullet holes, but again it is about the history of just being there. Then we saw the OK Corral shootout show which provided us history again. Beware there are 3 gun shows that try to get you to see their show. We ate at The Crystal Palace and the performers were there and very gracious to take some pictures with us. We saw the historama which again provides history. All in all we were somewhat disappointed with Tombstone but that was not Jim's fault. Then the adventures began. Jim went off road to show us some "chit." We saw the airplane grave yard and air force base from the road. Then we stopped at the Air Museum Gift Shop for our pit stop. Then we saw the museum from outside which was very cool. We went to the mission-white dove of the dessert. It is very pretty. We had some fried Indian bread which is like an elephant ear back home. On our way back we Jim pointed out an unusual saguaro cactus. It looked like it had a perm on top with a group of things piled on top. Our next pit stop was a gas station with a Dairy Queen. He was determined we would find the DQ. We enjoyed our ice cream. Jim took us to see the dam and bridve in Tempe which was cool. Jim took many pictues of us and knew just the right shots to get. He was a wealth of information the entire trip. We absolutely loved his humor. We saw and learned so much we woukd have never seen on our own. Thank you Jim for making it so much fun. The 2 18 year olds and 16 year olds loved it too. As you have named us The Griswolds!
