Our Out of this World Experience at Roswell, NM

FINALLY after pulling our slides in and hitching up, we made our way from San Antonio, Texas to points in New Mexico.  Really this time, New Mexico was only supposed to be a ‘transit state’ meaning just drive through but that proved otherwise.  But we still had to stop for a few days so our resident mousers could get rid of their highway legs.

Our first stop was at Carlsbad KOA for a few nights.  It was a nice park for being a KOA (some hot, some not).  We hunkered down there because it was near Carlsbad Caverns, the Guadalupe Mountains National Park and Roswell, NM.

 

 

First on our agenda was, OMG, we just HAD to go to Roswell, New Mexico to see the Aliens.  Captain Dan is a huge believer in UFO’s and….well…little green men too (and Big Foot too but I digress)

 

And so we went to Roswell to go to the UFO Museum. I was constantly reminded this was payback from all the times I dragged him to Michael’s and Hobby Lobby craft stores.

 

Long story short, ‘supposedly’ back in the 1940’s some weird aluminum foil looking “space ship” crashed in a farm field some few miles from Roswell AKA ‘the ROSWELL INCIDENT‘.  It was kept all hush-hush because well…the government was involved (imagine that!).

 

So, this “UFO museum” had all these news clippings, reports, crazy pictures and documented interviews, er…..’evidence’ that this actually happened.  Me (Lisa) being a skeptic, well, you know where I’m going with this. (Pssssst, did I mention he also believes in Big Foot too?).  Anyways, since there was nothing else to do, I went along for the ride….and humor.  I mean, if ya can’t laugh at this stuff!!

 

No KIDDING, we get out of the truck and walk through town there were little green men EVERYWHERE in Roswell…

 

…in stores…

 

 

…and hair salons…

 

 

…and Mexican Restaurants…

 

 

 

…and vending machines…

 

 

 

…and tire stores…

 

 

…and Security Firms…

 

 

and um…walking around on the streets?

 

 

…and then ahhhhhhhh, we come to this place; Dan’s little piece of heaven.  Well, thank goodness it was only a $3 admission fee for each of us; otherwise, I’d wait outside Pokeman-ing all these little green men everywhere.

 

Oh man, he was really into this stuff!  He was studying every diagram, photo and reading every word…I mean, EVERY WORD!  I would’ve rather watched green paint dry.  Wait, did I just say that?

 

 

 

 

 

 

SO, there we were, finishing up this 3 hour tour.  I’d rather have been with Gilligan on an island.  But because we love each other, we make sacrifices and I surely gave him 3 days worth….er…..3 hours worth.  I wouldn’t want him any other way.
