ROC Attacks Area 51 - June 18-19 - 2016


This a pay your own way event. This means even me the organizer pays my own way to attend. Organizing drives is my hobby and I enjoy organizing and hosting events for fellow enthusiasts. I pay for the website and store system out of my own pocket to make sharing information and registering easier on everyone.

Ever wanted to see the famous sights around Area 51? This is the trek for you. We will be doing a two day trail tour to see all the sights and maybe a UFO or two around Area 51. Open to any and all vehicles, this will be a fun two-day adventure that loops from Tonopah to Vegas and back.

Expectations of participants.
Our trail runs are planned around having fun, seeing sites, and traveling specific amounts of mileage per day / event. This means if you participate, you are aware of the mileages needing to be covered per day and that you are expected to cover them in a reasonable time frame. Our group is NOT a "fly as fast as you can" group, but at the same time we are not a crawler group. We enjoy offroading with all types of trucks/SUVs , therefore the routes and daily mileage requirements are selected with non modified 4X4 vehicles in mind. By signing up, you understand we ask that when the trail conditions allow, you drive at a safe pace that can allow you to cover the terrain / distance as expected by the group.

Planned Trip Summary:
Starting in Tonopah, NV, we will head south along the border of the Groom Lake test range, AKA Area 51. Day 1 will be the sightseeing day to make stops at the usual tourists' stops: the “black mail box”, Little Alie-Inn, and Groom Lake Road Gate, to name a few. There are a few other stops planned for those in attendance to get out and stretch and maybe see a UFO.. or two. The end of the day will be in Las Vegas, NV for the overnight stop.

Day 2 will lead back to Tonopah. The stops will be at Devils Hole and a few abandoned mines that are on the way.
