Titan Missile silo
We started our day early this morning...........we had to be somewhere at 8:45 sharp...and it was about an hour away. We got up, got a bite to eat, and headed out. Our destination was the Titan Missile Museum.
It was explained how messages were received, launch codes kept and validated, and how an actual missile launch occurs. One was even simulated with the consoles, using Marge and one of the tour members. Missileers work as a team, and any launch MUST be initiated by two people. It is physically impossible for only one person to do it.
Our campsite, Benson, Arizona
Tomorrow, we head south to Nogales. We'll decide whether we cross over when we get there. More tomorrow!
Quote of the day: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds". - An ancient hindu text, most often noted for the person who repeated it in his writings.....Robert Oppenheimer.
Song of the day: Russians- Sting, from the album "The Dream of the Blue Turtles".
I'm Bill. My wife Laurie and I love to travel and share our stories. We especially love it when we have been able to motivate our readers to start traveling on their own, and making their own stories.
