I know at least one person from chilly old England that has made the trip to the observation location for the TTR. [No hiking required, but you should
rent a SUV.] The TTR really is quite busy for being in "caretaker status." They recently applied for permission to increase the size of their
landfill. I have this theory, with no evidence to back it up, that perhaps some of the toxics at Groom Lake are now handled at the TTR The reasoning
being the EPA now has the rights to sniff around Groom Lake, an outcome of Turley's lawsuit. If the EPA is going to sniff, perhaps it is better to
let them examine the waste over at the TTR rather than Groom. At least that doesn't interrupt testing at Groom.
I wouldn't be surprised to see Sandia kicked out of the facility eventually. The DOE is dirt poor compared to the USAF. (OK, perhaps ignoring the 3+
billion for the National Ignition Facility). There has been noise made to move the Sandia function to other bases. I'm sure the USAF would love for
the Sandia to be out of there so they can do more spook stuff.
Sandia and the USAF operate somewhat independently. They use different buses to bring workers to the base, though I don't know if they stage in
different locations. When a few of us were on the hill near the gate to watch the F117s return to the TTR, we were met by both DOE and USAF (I think)
security. The DOE guy was as pleasant as can be. ["You don't have to give up your name, but we would appreciate it.] The other security guy just
went around recording license plate numbers and grumbling while doing so.
I came across a job ad for a guard at the TTR, but it will exceed the posting character limit. Here it is at alt.conspiracy.area51
I would have posted the link to the job, but it is not really archived like usenet.
