Anybody going? The boy and I are. The crazy fuel mileage I'm getting has opened up a whole new sphere of influence.

Oh, I don't know. Was on the Extraterrestrial Hwy the end of July coming back from San Fran with my new to me TDI JSW and told my boy aboot it and he got all excited and me telling him aboot Storm Area 51 activity. Being from NM, of course we've been to Roswell so its kind of an interest of ours.

The event has been officially cancelled but Las Vegas is having festivities and Rachel and Hiko NV have gone on record as still having festivities so why not?

Want to see what the Gubberment reaction will be to all of us.

Want to do Burning Man also so this will be our introduction to such gatherings

Good luck. Don't forget that the people who planned and organized these "events" have zero experience at this. Be prepared for:
too many people
too little water
too few "facilities" (read: port-a-potty)
no access to anything except empty desert
lots of scammers, thieves, and cheap souvenirs sellers
lots of assorted "law enforcement" folks (both visible and not)

Have Fun!


P.S. At least the organizers of burning man have some experience. It is likely to be a much better experience. Either way, let us know how it goes.

I hear ya Don, will do. All good suggestions. I plan on being self supporting once we leave Las Vegas. Even down to the 5 gallon bucket crapper.
