We had an enjoyable time here at the Museum and then took the backroads to see the Ambush spot up close and personal. We didn't shoot at it, though, so we might have missed some of the experience. Anyway - Mr. Boots Hinton was there himself and he was a wealth of information. One lady was bending his ear and vice versa while we were there and it was fun to listen in. Some people can get rather obsessed with this stuff, you know? It was fun to watch the videos and look at the memorabilia, but be warned - no death car.
The fun, though, is in the atmosphere of the small country backroads and driving slowly out to the ambush spot to see the shot-up and defaced statute. On the way out there take a moment to stop in to the Mt. Lebanon cemetery which has been going since 1837 - puts this all in perspective.
The locals are in the process of erecting a new marker at the ambush spot which may or may not be similarly defaced and shot at (hopefully not, but . . . people are people after all). We may never pass this way again, but thanks for reminding us that history and modernity can co-exist mostly peacefully.
And if you're interested in seeing this site, keep in mind that Mr. Hinton is not a youngster - when he passes, the museum may not outlive him, as this is a passion project for sure. He even tried to charge us less than posted! So git on out there to see where the Legend of Bonnie & Clyde came to it's inevitable conclusion.
