Unless you're texting and driving, you can't miss the 10 or so teaser billboards advertising THE THING? along I-10 just past Benson, AZ. The sparse stretch of desert on I-10 East gives you little else to look at.
After loading up on too much coffee, we pulled off for a pit stop at this trading post just off Exit 322. Once inside, we figured we may as well have a look while we were there... For $1/person, we could finally put our curiosity about THE THING? to rest.
It was actually pretty neat... Well, other than the feeling that perhaps we had just paid $1 to get mugged. Inside was a dusty 1932 Buick, a Rolls Royce that once belonged to Hitler, a rifle dating back from the 1600's and many other quirky exhibits.
So what is The Thing? We did take photos... but... that is for you to find out in person! If you are that curious, feel free to send us a message.
