Location: Campfire Hill, Nevada National Security Site (Groom Lake Area)
-Document/record any and all area activity for 365 days (text, photo, video - all using low-observable methods; I.e., nothing emitting any sort of
electromagnetic-wavelength, to minimize the possible 'technological' detection by others. However, with a possible implementation of a 'faraday
cage'-like interior of the tent, to help block external detection of electronic devices, then the use of say a digital radio scanner, my FLIR Scout,
2nd and 3rd gen NV optics, digital telescope, and a small array of MIL-spec solar collectors/chargers for aforementioned said electronic devices, can
be examined further for potential use.)
-Keep a minimal and low-observable 'footprint'/presence (i.e., desert-camouflage fatigues/ghille/hunting blind-style tent, with a MIL-spec IR blocking
vinyl interior material, to better absorb/reflect IR-recording devices from 'outside sources')
-Keep weekly contact with local liaisons for the following:
--To physically transfer (exchange hands) of data accumulated throughout each week. (Is is to ensure a secure means of storing/maintaining all
findings, without initially implementing the use of electronic communication devices, which could be potentially 'intercepted', acknowledged, or
possibly triangulated by outside sources.
--To receive weekly supply of fresh water, MRE's (Meal Ready to Eat, for the lay-person..), and other minimal sustainence supplies.
--To have weekly trash/garbage/waste removed from site (to retain a minimal physical footprint)
How this all started:
I had overheard a few colleagues of mine, also in the science/engineering field (as am I), speaking of the chances of seeing something or catching a
fast mover on film (still/video), over the skies of the Nevada Test Site. One had said "Well if you go and camp out there one night, the odds of you
seeing something of any special interest, would be slim; 1 in 365 - Because it'd be just your luck, that they weren't doing anything 'out of the
ordinary' on that particular night/day". So my take on that was, why not increase your chances by staying a few nights... a week.. a month.. a YEAR!?
You would only exponentially increase the odds and likelihood, that you'd come across something actually worth while. I am a very experienced hiker,
outdoorsman, and hunter, so I do not foresee any problems with the 'extended stay' that I plan to endure, other than it being a personal challenge to
myself and my way of life.
I figured, why not turn this 365 day project into an actual Film Documentary. Where after my stay has concluded, I compile all photos, videos, my
daily journal, and personal experiences, into one FACTUAL video, for the public to see. I'm no amateur when it comes to photography, videography,
writing, project management, etc., not to mention my professional and personal ties to the film/entertainment industry. Several of my closest friends
are editors, directors, audio/video engineers, etc., that I would then outsource to, to have my findings/data transformed into a full-length, feature
There have seen SO many 'reality'-type movies and films done, along the lines of The Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activiy, Quarantine, The Fourth
Kind, etc., etc., that have been 99.9% fiction, and based on the paranormal. These have all been ENORMOUSLY successful in the box office, as well as
after dvd-release. On the contrary, there have been VERY, very few like-films or movies, that are based on factual evidence, yet related to Government
'Black Projects' or 'UFO's' - Of which, I believe, would have a rather fair chance amongst the aforementioned 'paranormal' counterparts.
I plan on further tying down the specifics and such, here throughout the next several months - With the provisional steps of procuring supplies,
contacts, etc., and ultimately, setting out on this 365 day 'stakeout' taking place in the Spring of 2012, with the tentative release of the
film/documentary to be in the Winter of 2013 (that is, if '2012' doesn't take place... LOL)
There is no immediate limitation to my funding for this project. So any/all recommendations, advice, information, questions, comments, concerns, as
well as your support, is more than welcome!! I plan to implement any useful information brought forward by anyone, as well as revising/changing any
plans or preconceptions, to better format the project and/or process(es) for a better overall experience and end-result.
Many thanks to all, in advance, and I am truly excited about this endeavor!!!
