The fifth and final "scoping meeting" was held in Las Vegas, October 20th.

There are ramifications here that perhaps people don't realize:
"The proposed action also would renew — perhaps indefinitely — the military’s hold on all the land previously withdrawn from public use for the test range under a congressional decree set to expire in 2021."

This is the email the USAF just sent out. I'm interleaving the links with the text, so this may look a bit odd.

I am working on a list of sites/sights located in that area that will no longer be accessible after the land grab.

Here is a link to a polygon plugin I made for Google Earth, which defines the area they are grabbing:

They picked the grab so it doesn't block the good road to Tikaboo. There is a short cut but the road is rougher.

There is precedent for allowing civilians to drive on military reserves with the rule that you can't stop on the road. That is the case at Stonewall Peak. Actually they stole that peak, but you can get nearly the same view from a nearby peak.

When I first drove to Stonewall, i could see the border on my car GPS. I logged the gate way point and drove all the way back to Tonopah to discuss this with the BLM. They told me I could cross the border to reach the free territory but not stop on the road. Note this is just crossing the NTTR, not the Groom Lake restricted border.

These dunes are in the new restricted area.
