Show Notes

Welcome to Deming, New Mexico, "An Enterprise Community!"  Located 35 miles north of the US-Mexico border, Deming was founded 1881 and was a major hub on the second transcontinental railroad.  The Silver Spike was driven in Deming to commemorate the meeting of the Southern Pacific with the Rio Grande, Mexico and Pacific railroads.   In recent years, several movies had been filmed in Deming.  Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Gas Food Lodging, and the Themyscira scenes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were all filmed in the area.  Most importantly (to Neil anyway), the town is location of The Great American Duck Race.  The annual event features duck race, a hot air balloon show, and numerous other events.  We hope you enjoy our visit to Deming!
