Neanderthals visit Meteor City, Arizona 2021AD

Neanderthal Boondocker and a Human Bean visit Meteor City along Arizona Interstate 40, Exit 239.

Had it not been so early in the day, we would have set up our Cavestream in the large parking lot. 'Meteordocking'? over night? Appears to have had a number of overnight 'Meteordockers' at the site in the distant... Past.

The Meteor Crater is Exit 233. This is NOT the exit to visit the Museum and Meteor Crater. That was Fifty Thousand Years ago when a meteor created the Crater. Not these structures which are FREE to visit outside, but boarded up entrance.

Meteor City was created along Old Route Highway 66 that is now Interstate 40.

After driving past this structure for many years, we dropped into the Meteor City site. Easy off and onto I-40, as well.

Would I 'Meteordock' there next time if the Sun was setting in the West? "You Betcha!" There are places to Boondock in privacy and then again, those places that you try once in a lifetime. Maybe twice.

See you there, next time.

Oh.... No View? Wait until after Sunset, look up into the dark sky and the stars will light up your heart. No, kidding. We all need a fresh stellar charge. Here it is available without any outdoor lighting. ...or anything else, for that matter.

Starman 1984- Jeff Bridges

I watched this movie a long time ago and recall, right or wrong, that this Meteor City site was in the film.

Ms. Human Bean had not seen the film, so I am going to try to find it on our Free Movies... if available. Every time we passe this place, that is the first memory of why it was interesting as a land mark, and possibly in the Film when not closed and run down.

I liked the film.

They were heading to Barringer Meteor Crater in the Film.

Uncle Bob may recall the Film and if they had hook ups in 1984.

People go to places for many reasons, some reasonable and like mine, curious to see what is around the next corner. Grand Canyon, Yellowstone... yawn... But Meteor City... few have been there and for good reason. What reason, I am not sure. But no longer on my List of Things to See and Do.
