Today we headed off to the World Famous UFO museum in Roswell NM, location of an alleged UFO crash in 1947. A rancher discovered debris in a sheep pasture he was working in and that kicked of a 70 year dialogue and debate on what was found some 7 decades ago. The museum does a great job presenting formerly classified documents and death-bed statements to justify their assertion that in addition to debris from a space craft; there was the bodies of 4 extraterrestrial beings found as well. They lay their case out well and add in enough touristy stuff to make the museum a really fun stop along our cross-country expedition. We half expected the museum to be a complete tourist trap, but were pleasantly surprised by how professionally it is put together. While walking around in the museum, we heard accents from people from several countries, so the mystery still pings the curiosity of UFO theorists from around the world. On the way back to the RV, we had a great time debating the arguments on what was found, was it an advanced government weapons project, an alien crash, a genetic experiment, etc... If you go see the museum and read their documents, you will find yourself entering the debate. We took pictures of the documents, but they were too numerous to include them all in the blog. It was truly another fun afternoon.

I think I will put that on my bucket list! I am one of the crazy people who do believe in UFO's. Haven't seen evidence of it, but just think in this huge universe we can't be it.
