    Area 51

    Has anyone done a road trip to area 51? I assume there is no transport to go there so some sort of reliable car or camper van would be needed. Would you do it as a day trip or spend a few days there looking for aliens

    I once got lost on a roadtrip in New Mexico and I ended up at the gates of the military base. I had to turn around and ended up sight seeing, but no never saw an alien other than on a mug, t shirt or key chain.

    I don't think there is much you can do over there, unless you work there. Going there sounds like a waste of time to me, unless you are really interested in buying all that merchandise with aliens on them, then I'd say give this a go I have a relative who lives in New Mexico, I must say New Mexico in general doesn't look like a really appealing place to visit.

    I have not, but I know if you get too close that they make you leave. They might even detain you. I don't know that there are aliens there, but I think they have some serious junk going on, and they don't want you to know about it.

    Think about it...they fly their employees in and out everyday. What does that tell you?

    Is that what it is? A place where you can find aliens? I would like to go there someday, which I would like to see the real aliens right there. I haven't been to Area 51, which I always thought it's only for those who are in the military or something. Thank you for posting something like this!

    First of all, for some the other posters:
    Area 51 is not in New Mexico.

    But I wouldn't bother making a trip there. A long way to go to look at a fence in the middle of the desert.

    Sorry Crimson...I may have started all this. When I saw the thread and thought aliens, I thought Roswell, New Mexico and vividly remembered the Guard Shack and being turned around. So I was thinking White Sands Base.

    Area 51 is in Nevada. If there are people that are interested in UFOs or UFO enthusiasts there are places throughout the Southwestern United States that have groups, conventions and places of interest. Even Howard Hughes had an interest...search "Giant Rock, the Integretron and Howard Hughes" and you will see alot about how he even set up an airstrip to go visit these in the high desert of Southern California.

    Oh? Area 51 is not located in New Mexico? It is good to know. Thanks for the information!

    No, I can't say that I have. It's something my mother used to talk about ALL the time and still wants to do...one of those things she'd had planned out and detailed in her head for quite a long time, but we've not gone out that way yet.

    I am sure if your mother is an enthusiast she is aware of the places in California, Nevada and New Mexico as mentioned above. It is clear though if you research the topic, there are sightings in every state, some of the ones mentioned are notorious due to either celebrities (like Howard Hughes) or the incidents like in Roswell or with respect to the lore that has arisen next to certain military installations. Hope she gets to take her trip and have a great time.

    Are they not very wary of visitors in Area 51? I heard patrols and such like are very aggressive and do not take kindly to unwanted visitors!

    I would love to delve inside that place to find out what really goes on behind closed doors.
