thats where they've been practicing for the intergalactic baseball league. i think we have a pre-season game against Nereid (a neptunian moon that lies 5,513,400km from the earth and has a 360.16 day orbit), aparently they have an excellent ball club due to the fact everyone inhabiting that moon is shaped like a baseball bat.

That is Area 51, the USAF base at Groom Lake.

The baseball diamond is for R+R, as is Sam's Bar which can be seen just to the right of the diamond. The 15 pairs of thin parallel buildings are dormatories where some employees stay for longer periods so they dont have to take the JANET (air taxi for area 51 worker) back to Vegas every day. Apperently there are financial incentives to employees for staying in the dorms.

During Project OXCART (development of the Lockheed A-12 "Blackbird"), recreational facilities at Area 51 included a gymnasium, movie theatre, nine-hole golf course, and a softball diamond.

The Area 51 softball team was called the 8-Ballers. "The Bulletin Board," an unclassified newsletter published by Reynolds Electrical & Engineering Company (REECo) for Nevada Test Site (NTS) employees regularly posted articles about Test Site sporting events. Throughout the 1960s, headlines such as "Area 51 Wins Slow-Pitch Tournament" were common and many of the players were listed by name. I've had the pleasure of meeting several of them.

That's about typical for a military base, along with some sort of Post Exchange store...heheh. It's about the same in White Sands, stopped by there to get gas, last week while driving thru that area.

Yes, i was on vacation...first took the family to Hawaii, then a road trip thru the Southwest. Yes, i'm now back in Ashraf Iraq to finish out my contract. As far as the ISP goes, our satellite internet provider (Tachyon) is located in the Netherlands, i guess.

Believe me the jet lag is hell.... lol Love the frequent flyer miles though.
