Nevada isn’t my favorite road trip state because there’s so much nothing. It’s just hours and hours of driving without even a town in sight and multiple signs warning me that the next gas station is 100 miles away. All that nothing has a bleak dusty beauty to it but seriously… there’s literally no one around while I’m driving for hours. Close to zero supervision, is that a good thing? I just know if makes me want to do about 100mph and I probably shouldn’t.
Fortunately, I found the extraterrestrial highway on my way up to Elko
How can this highway can have existed since 1996 without my knowledge? Probably a conspiracy by this big guy
He stands guard outside a gift shop… which seems like a relatively important task. And across the way is the research center
I always thought Area 51 had something to do with Roswell but apparently I’m confusing my UFO crash sites with actual government work. Or something. And what all that has to do with this research center is another mystery. I didn’t go in. Didn’t seem like a good day for probing.
The website takes pains to clarify that the jerky is neither alien flesh nor made in outer space, both of which are a considerable disappointment to me and probably all other visitors. But perhaps they think the abducted cow is misleading…
Probably the aliens are too busy planning a stagecoach robbery to make jerky…
I think there are more UFO sites to be had. I’ll check them out on my way back down to AZ.
Nevada, I have to give it to you. When you break up the nothing, you go all the way.
