Tuesday, Dec. 30. 2014 – Fun Day at Old Tucson Studios – 5th Year Anniversary!!

December 30, 2009 was the first day we hit the road "full-time." We had no idea then that we would still be doing it 5 years later, but no regrets, and no plans to quit any time soon! Still having a great time! Today was the warmest day scheduled, so we had made plans to go to the Old Tucson studio, a must-see when you're in Tucson, especially if you like old Western movies and TV series (which we do!) We left here a bit after 10:00, not realizing that activities start at the amusement park from the time they open at 10:00, so we missed an activity or two by the time we arrived. There was plenty to do, though, so we got busy. We saw a couple of shows at the Palace Theatre (strictly amateur, but entertaining in a student/community theatre sort of way), visited the old haunted mine, took the train around the perimeter, took a stage coach ride, saw the bank robber gun fight and the stunt demonstration, and had a great time walking around and soaking in the atmosphere. The walking tour was interesting too, with lots of trivia about the programs and movies made there. We stayed until just before closing at 5:00, have had a thoroughly enjoyable day. Still managed to get back by late dusk, so we still had some daylight by the time we fed the horses and got settled in for the night. What a great way to celebrate our 5th Travel Anniversary!!
