Our first day trip after spending over a month on the road in our RV was to visit the historic Winslow Arizona, simply because of The Eagles song “Take it Easy”. We simply had to have our picture taken “Standing on the corner in Winslow Arizona!” 17 Miles west of Winslow however, was the 50,000 year old Meteor Crater and site of NASA training missions for moon exploration and site of filming for one of Rob’s favorite movies Star Man with Jeff Bridges, filmed in 1984. Discovering the famous La Posada Hotel quite by accident, we left Winslow wondering “why on earth does that town exist anyway?”
