Tonight we sleep at my niece’s home in
, in the meantime; we’ve got Dayton,
NV 376 miles to go. A few miles north
on US93 we turn on to the Extraterrestrial Highway, NV375, so put on your
aluminum foil hat and follow us to Rachel, the home of the Little A’Le’Inn, surrounded
by Area 51 which officially did not exist until very recently.
We met Pat, the owner and her daughter. Pat told us the story of the Little A’Le’
She said,"Back in 1990 we decided to aspire to the surrounding area and embrace what this town of
was really all about during this period in history. Thus the name of the Little
A'Le' Rachel Inn was born. Some believe the name is to sound
like an inn that serves ale (ale inn), while others believe it to mean alien.
We leave this up to you to decide. We like the sounds of both.
"Look up as the truth lies there. Always keep your eyes to the skies whenever you can. You just never know when that special event will happen. At those times there may be no answers, leaving you only to wonder what just happened or what you saw, and having to ask more questions... getting no answers. Life is a mystery, enjoy the ride.
"The events and unidentified flying objects we see and only hear at times in this area often leave us shaking our heads. The unknown is what we live for. The times when logic escapes us and the knowledge of things to come are before us. We welcome it all."
As she was finishing the story we noticed several small men, grayish in color and wrapped in dark cloaks, entering the room. We quickly thanked Pat for the brief interview and worked our way to the door. As I turned to close it I saw that Pat and her daughter had started to remove masks from their faces, so we jumped in the car and headed for the highway.
We kept a sharp lookout for anything hovering over NV375 for the next
until we turned onto US6. The
landscape unfolded before us for the next Nevada 320 miles. Pulling into Diann’s
driveway completed the first stage of our adventure. Still in store for us; Exploring
Carson City, a Tour of Lake Tahoe, a Train ride to Virginia City
and a visit to Squaw Valley.
