Astronaut on a Combine

As of September 2022 the astronaut is now holding his head in his lap. He's still there, though -- surveying traffic as it goes by.

If you blink you'll miss it. The astronaut is kind of deteriorated and doesn't look much like an astronaut any more, but it's still fun to check off of the list!

Astronaut on a Combine

Although it's rather weather-worn today, an "Astronaut" sits in the driver's seat of a farm combine/harvester at the Pinnacle Peak Cafe and RV Park at mile marker 70 on the Glenn Highway (Hwy 1) in Alaska. The property is full of old farm equipment, tractors, and various business transportation implements. The Astronaut has been monitoring traffic along the highway for years, so he's a little battered, but still very recognizable. Fun and weird out in the middle of nowhere!
