The THING? - February 7, 2000, Drive Day - Phoenix to El Paso

The THING...

Today we drive from Phoenix to El Paso. Its about 440 miles. In the middle of nowhere we see this sign. We decide to stop and see what it is..

One born every minute

The Thing is hidden behind a closed door. And we have to pay to see it.

But first we browse in a weird little gift shop. Paul buys a rattlesnake head as a gift fo our friend Les Collins. He is in his nineties, and still gardening in Robert Fripp's former house in England. They also sell cans with snakemeat, melted snowmen, and other curiosities. By now we really want to know what this thing is. After seeing the thing, we are still not sure what it is ... some sort of mummy.

Happy Valentine's Day!

This is my self-portrait after a long drive. Call it The Thing. Thanks to Hideyo for providing the excellent picture frame.
