has anyone camped at Area 51?

Postby playla_wook » Thu Jan 19, 2012 1:25 pm

Hey yall!

My husband, a few friends and I are going to be making our first trip to the playa this year. We're super excited and I can't wait! Already planning the details :)

We didn't originally think we were going to be joining a theme camp, but it just so happens we found out about Area 51. There are several reasons we are leaning towards this camp. I've read through these boards and have seen the pros/cons to joining camps, I'm just really interested to hear if anyone knows about this one in particular.

Thanks guys!

It's just down the road. Never thought of camping there.

Ditto. Isn't it a government/army type installation with fences all around? Don't rumors of odd things florish when no one can go there and attest to the truth that nothing's happening?

Haha, I guess I should have emphasized I was asking about the theme camp put on by Area 51 in Atlanta... not the OTHER Area 51!

Thanks Sic Pup, we're from atl, and we're leaning towards your camp. Can't wait to meet everyone!

why do we have to wait 8 months??

Because it's cold and wet and miserable on the playa right now, and it's Nevada fire season, so we couldn't burn.

It's not Nevada Fire season.

Nevermind. :oops:

You're mistaken, I have no camp affiliation, I'm a borderline misanthrope,I go for the art and barely tolerate most (but not all) people. Although Area 51 sounds okay if one is a joiner-type person, I just know how, and I'm not afraid, to use the internet.

hahaha, I thought you meant the base in Nevada as well till I read more. If you do go to Area 51, it is a blast, huge elevation changes, you'll go from snow 2 feet of snow to dry within minutes.

There is.... no other Area 51. Is that understood?

I've never camped with them on the Playa, but I know most of the A51 crew from regionals on the South East of the US, and they are a solid bunch.
