Titan Missile Museum

Last winter we toured the Titan Missile Museum

Location: Sahuarita, Arizona

Cost: Adults $10.50, Seniors $ 9.50

What do you get: 1 hour guided tour of the former Titan II Missile Silo

This is a quote from their website

The Titan Missile Museum is the only remaining Titan II site open to the public, allowing you to re-live a time when the threat of nuclear war between the U.S. and the former Soviet Union was a reality.

The Titan II was capable of launching from its underground silo in 58 seconds and could deliver a nine megaton thermonuclear warhead to its target more than 6,000 miles (approximately 10,000 km) away in less than thirty minutes. For more than two decades, 54 Titan II missile complexes across the United States stood “on alert” 24 hours a day, seven days a week, heightening the threat of nuclear war or preventing Armageddon, depending upon your point of view.”

Here are some photos from our tour

A very educational tour, we highly recommend checking out the Titan Missile Museum.

Tuscan Rodeo Museum

When doing my research for the Tuscan area I accidentally came across this little gem of history.

The Tucson Rodeo Parade Museum is located in the historic Tucson Rodeo Ground.

Cost: $12.00 Adults, $ 9.00 for Seniors

We had the most amazing tour guide by the name of Bob. Bob was a wealth of information that made this tour so great.

A few displays set up of the Tuscan History.

They have quite the collection of saddles.

We even got to tour their tac room.

This Museum has over 100 horse drawn vehicles on display. Even a few that appeared in the Antique Road Show!

Here are a few pictures

This is a working wagon, it spends it winters here at the museum and then on the trails for the summers.

A fully functional mini steam model locomotive track, along with everything you could think of what Tucson would have looked like after the train station arrived.

Here is a little did you know!!!

Palm Springs Air Museum

While I was back home in Saskatchewan in February for the birth of our twin granddaughters, Myron stayed south with Bella and Rider. The weather was a lot cooler, with a lot more rain, so when the sun finally came out, it was time to toured the Palm Springs Air Museum.

Cost: $17.50 adults – $ 15.50 for age 65+

Things are changing

What I am about to tell you is going to be a real shocker to a lot of you!

Last night we sat down for a long talk, and after much discussion Myron made the decision we needed to be on the road by 8:30 tomorrow morning!

Well, of course Becky laughed, as everyone knows, we are not the fastest moving couple, we are lucky if we can leave by 10 am and that is pushing it!

Well, this morning we were on the road by 8:19am…… No really, I am not kidding, we really were on the the road that early!!!

Oh stop laughing…. I even took a screen shot of our departure time, just so we had actual proof we did it!

But all joking aside, even with today being a short driving day to Las Vegas

we had quite the climb gets out of Laughlin as starting elevation is 520ft.

Highest point of our climb was 2,929 ft.

That’s a 2,409 ft climb…. Old Red did great as usual pulling our condo on wheels.
