    The town is not happy!

    Storm Area 51's 'Alienstock' Festival Looks Like It's Going to Be a Disaster

    “With the social media attention this event is getting we want to clarify a few points for those not familiar with this area. Other than the Little A'Le'Inn, a small bar/restaurant/motel there are no services in Rachel. There is no gas and no store,” the town’s website states, “The Inn is booked for that weekend. If you plan on attending the event you must be experienced in camping, hiking and surviving in a harsh desert environment and have a vehicle in good shape. You must be prepared to be completely on your own for food, water, gas etc.”

    While most alien enthusiasts were worried about getting shot at by military personnel at Area 51, the residents of Rachel may be the bigger threat. With bolded red letters in all caps, the website reads:

    “WARNING: A dubious group claiming a connection to chaotic events like Burning Man and the Las Vegas Electric Music Festival has taken over this event. They threaten to ‘take over Rachel’ and claim that the residents are ‘on board,” the town’s website notes. “The residents were not asked and are not on board and will certainly not allow their town to be taken over. Law enforcement will be overwhelmed and local residents will step up to protect their property. This is not a good time to visit and experience Rachel.”

    This is the point I've been making. There is neither the infrastructure nor logistical capability necessary in Raphel to support a few dozen people, let alone thousands. This is a very bad idea.

    I used to listen to a talk show host on KMOX out of St Louis, a guy named Jim White. His favorite expression was, "You can't fix stupid."

    it will be "burning man" 2.0.... there was a hippy gathering here in the state forests last summer.... ppl don't need the infrastructure to gather and party...and we also have a rather large gypsi population that comes through regularly.... these ppl are fairly self sustaining and make a way when needed or wanted..... I may one day join them...lol
