Just a bird in a gilded cage

... all good fun, except I didn't get to shoot any guns.

Dinner was at "the Longhorn". Naturally I had bacon and eggs.

We went back to the Birdcage and did the ghost tour. Our guide took us all through the building. First into the gambling room and theatre. Balcony type cribs lined the walls. Who knows what kind of mischief blokes like Doc Holliday got up to in there.

Next we went up on the stage and then down ...

Poor Tony Tahoe

We had to stop in the desert city of Sierra Vista to get Tony Tahoe serviced and have an oil leaked looked at. Sadly the oil leak was pretty major and they would need Tony to stay in the shop overnight , we found a dodgy, smelly, noisy but cheap hotel for the night and had delicious pizza for dinner. $1500 later Tony is all fixed and we are back on the road, an expensive exercise but it's the risk you take when you buy an old car put a ton of miles on ...

That afternoon we drove to Tombstone, home of the infamous OK Corral. Touristy with a capital T, but ...

... as we knew we were finally getting somewhere today.

Tombstone is of course the scene of the 'Gunfight at the O.K. Corral' at the end of the 1800's. Arizona wasn't part of the Union of American until 1912 (we were here on the 100th anniversary of that) and so Tombstone was a significant history spot for all Americans. On the main road through Tombstone we found the Tombstone Motel where John, Celia and Peter had stayed in 1987. We had previously had a glimpse of ...
