Nothing like a good day to explore the Space Port down in Truth or Consequences in southern New Mexico! I went with my dear Treasure Searching Companion with the local Film Union to check out the location for future film possibilities. What an adventure. Never seen so many electrical wires and flowing hot springs in one little town as this before! Always, something very odd and peculiar lurked around every corner we turned. The town surprisingly, for its small town population, had a nice variety and choices of good cafe’s and restaurants.
We stayed at the Pelican, had dinner with the locations film crew in a little restaurant that accommodated us all. Sitting at our table with us, were a select group of gentlemen. A young man sat next to me. Never spoke. Had very pale tone skin and ate his food in a strange manner. I watched his pointed long fingered hands and odd method of scooping food in his mouth. I suppose that he was only concerned about eating, as most young men are. I learned that he was one of the guides that drive the coach to the Space Port with all its visitors, as one is not permitted to drive their own car to the Space Port Site. The gentleman sitting across the table also had pale colored skin and long pointy fingers. He was the young looking father to this young man sitting next to me. He did talk quite a bit, however, with no emotion, and very little expression. I started to get the feeling that Aliens populated the town and were among us.
The next morning was very chilly and we quickly warmed our bellies with tea/coffee and a hearty breakfast before we all lined up and boarded the bus. Next thing we know, was what felt like propaganda… we were feed lots of stories and information, TV video show, history and more about the territory, as we would wind thru the climbing mountain and traveled on thru the parched desert, towards the Space Port.
When we finally got to the Space Port, we got to walk on the Sky Walk where the Astronauts walk to the limited access entry, to their special room where they prepare for their Astral Journey. When we entered the building, there was an apparatus that spun you around with great centrifugal force that felt like a nice spinal adjustment when I got off.
Another odd moment was, when we entered the Space Port, it felt abandoned. Barely six people total seemed to run the whole operation there. Quiet, still and I looked around for more possible Aliens as we viewed from the Galaxy Eye.
We had a chance to play in the Grand Fire Truck that was state of the art technology and shined so fresh and new…
On to the Hangar where Richard Branson’s beautiful Space Shuttle sat shine and new, with a gorgeous space mermaid that graced the outside, like a maiden head. We were told that each seat ticket price for the Space Shuttle is $250,000. They told us that Just Beiber purchased every seat on the shuttle for one flight.
Some of the crew were swooped up by helicopter and vanished in the sky. Didn’t return. More photos, more tours around the off limit rooms and such a great feeling of the rush and excitement the Astronauts must feel when they are about to take off in to the Abyss.
After we returned, being that I’m a Hot Spring fanatic, we had to indulged in one of the glorious, crystal clear hot springs at the River Bend Springs. It was a complete mystical experience, a must see and do! I recommend the visit at Truth or Consequences for anyone traveling around New Mexico, though, it is no where close to the Treasure Hunt territory.
