What an experience! The ride, truly awesome. We waited til 11am to leave on Saturday, still warm, clear and sunny. We took Hwy 85 south to Gila Bend and then east on I-8 to I-10 then south to Tucson and on to Tombstone. That way, we missed all the downtown PHX traffic and idiots!
Leisurely ride and arrived at 3pm. First thing, we checked into the Tombstone Bordello (Bed and Breakfast) and it was awesome! Great quaint room, private bath, upstairs. The owner, Linda, showed us around and shared that they had a hot tub in the back! Ohhhh ya!
We left to cruise Tombstone, have a couple of drinks and an early dinner. At Kate's, we made friends fast at the Saloon. A really nice lady couldn't keep herself off Lori! She's a local and makes leather cup/bottler coolers and sells them at local gift shops. She gave Lori a black leather one with black fur on it. Too nice.
The town was full of bikers, local and tourists, but mostly, no actually all, men! All I kept getting was compliments, drewels, and stares. Come on' guys!
Went to dinner at the Crystal Palace Saloon and had the best steak ever. Then back to the Bordello for an early evening soak in the hot tub. Nor more said here, but they wont forget us!
Then back to town, the Saloons and party. Kates is always friendly, full of people, mostly cowboy, gunslingers and tourists. Again, mostly men! I was beatin' off with my beer bottle. The band was great, for a country western band ( we'll take it if that's all there is!). Later, we went back to the Crystal Palace and there! Rocknroll Band! We partied the rest of the night away there. Lots of drunks, cowboys, gunslingers, and tourists. Now a couple more ladies, but everyone again, all over my bride! Can't a girl just pole dance!
Got up and headed home Sunday AM after a magnificent breakfast at the Bordello. Now this place is fantastic! Cant say enough. Clean, fresh, comfortable and friendly. Linda the owner spent the whole morning visiting with us. We'll be back.
The ride home was terrific. Very little traffic on all the back roads, and light thru Tucson. South around PHX thru Gila Bend was beautiful! Going back soon!
