Dakota Badlands. That surprised Susan but even more surprising was that the girl wasn't even holding a cellphone in her hands as she talked to us. Amazing!
We knew Tom Mix had died in a car accident at this spot but we didn't know the details. The guy gave us an additional piece of information: "A large polished aluminum suitcase containing a large sum of money, traveler's checks and jewels, which he had placed on the package shelf behind him flew forward and struck Mix in the back of the head, shattering his skull and breaking his neck." Susan helpfully pointed out to me the fact that my aluminum case was probably just like his, minus the money and jewels.
Small item of trivia that Susan wants to be sure you investigate for yourself.
We drove through Florence, AZ, where there is a large state prison complex, but before you get to Florence, off to the east, is the St. Anthony's Greek Orthodox Monastery. She found this by scanning Google Earth and it looks very interesting and worth finding out if we could tour the grounds. If you know how we can do that, let us know. But on to the main point: While trying to find information about the Monastery she did some research on Florence and found this trivia bit:
For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 582.5 males.Does that include the prisoners? The men at the monastery? The demographic data doesn't seem to include the prisoners since it also mentions median income levels, but sure seems like not very many women in that town.
