Tell me your feelings on it.
Henderson, Nevada - Naval Base
This one's interesting. I was in Henderson on May 3-4, 1988 on one of my Death Valley/Ghost Town/Photography/Screw the World jaunts. (I love Death
Valley). I remembered it vividly because I just got tired of driving and happened to turn off for the night and there I was in Henderson. It was a
sleepy, dusty town. I ended up in this strange hotel that seemed like part of an old 1940s horror movie, run by the nicest people you'd want to meet.
I love stuff like that. They were so surprized to see a visitor they gave me the room for a few bucks. The next morning (May 4) I left and was about
two hours from town, trying to get anything on the radio but static, when I heard a news report that there had been a terrible accident in Henderson
and the "marshmallow factory" had blown up, killing several people and causing a massive fire. I couldn't believe it...I was just there! I just
missed it. If I had been my usual Never In A Hurry self, I'd still be there. I saw the smoke not too long after, still driving; Henderson burning
Then I heard that what had in fact blown up was a government chemical/bomb plant. I was stunned. This sleepy little dusty town had a bomb plant? Huh?
I couldn't find a thing online about the original lie that it was a marshmallow plant. I KNOW they said that - in fact I had called home a few hours
after this happened to let them know I was OK because I had called the night before and they knew I's stayed there. I asked them, now - if they
remembered me calling and this story? and they did. It made no sense at all to me. What also doesn't make sense is how 4,500 tons of ammonium
perchlorate can be in the middle of a town and now it's surrounded by homes. In May, 1991 a huge release of chlorine occurred in Henderson - are we
Brian sent me this:
".... Do you know anything about a NAVAL base out in the middle of the Nevada desert? I want to say Hawthorn, or Henderson, or something like that?
About half way between LV and Reno. I was up that way a couple years ago helping out with tech inspection for while making the drive from Vegas to
Reno, out in the middle of nowhere, is this damn NAVAL base! Wow, that's strange I think, so I go though the little town of the same name, and then I
see a HUGE lake, also "in the middle of nowhere" and not really looking developed for "public use". What really weird is that the entire lake
looks as if it could be only a few feet deep, VERY slightly angled shores (no steep inclines, like a boat ramp, except from the cliffs of the mountain
it sits against) and actually could almost pass for simply a rain or run off"pond" if its acreage wasn't so big. Yet, out in the middle of this
"shallow" lake (starting at the shore of the shallowest looking end), is an almost perfectly straight, dead centered, dead calm "strip" of water
(you now the "still waters run deep" expression, its true). Coincidentally enough, this entire end of the lake (about 80% of the lake in fact) is
posted,,,yep, you guessed it,, "OFF LIMITS" with the familiar red and white govt issue signs.
Well, the guy that was riding with me to Reno grew up in the Vegas area, and says the rumor is that the Naval base designs/builds super secret
submarines, and the "trench" at the end of the lake is in fact the opening of a long underground water tunnel leading back to the base, so they can
test the subs in the lake, and "supposedly" this is the deepest lake in the US, or maybe the world".
