Before we head further south we need to ship back a few items that we are caring on our bikes and that could be viewed as weapons to the Mexican government. My machete, Kev's pocket knife, and a Harley Davidson shirt!…ha ha ha, the shirt could be a problem? The problem is it just took up too much space! We stop by a fedex store before heading out.
The day is crisp and bright. The desert cacti spikes sparkle from the last couple days of rain and we are excited to be traveling closer towards the Mexican boarder.
We stop off in the famous historic town of Tombstone for lunch and a look see. This place is really cool. People are dressed up in period wear, the saloons are packed and mock gunfights are played out in the streets….just a cool stop! Tombstone was one of the last wide-open American Old West frontier towns, famous for the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral. We ate at Big Nose Kate's Saloon, the gal that loved Doc Holiday and everyone else, and just soaked it all in!
One and a half hours later we entered the town of Douglas and turned onto the Pan American Highway! Wow, we are here! I have to say I am excited and a little freaked out all at the same time. Kev and I check into a Best Western Hotel right by the border crossing and prepare for tomorrow.
