They're probably updating the software in those 30+ year old ICBM's, you have to keep the technology updated or that old crap might decide to explode in the silo versus when it hits it's target.edit on 28-12-2011 by lonewolf19792000 because: (no reason given)

This morning I was travelling north out of Kimball, Nebraska along Hwy 71. Between mile markers 30 and 31 there is a missile launch installation. It doesn't look like much from the road - just some fence, barbed wire, and what looks like some weather equipment. It is common knowledge out here that this missile installation exists, and there are numerous others in the area.
Today was a bit unusual though. As I drove past, there were at least 6-8 unmarked black SUV type vehicles parked near the fences. There were also 3 camo military humvees with large boxes on the top (I'm not sure if it's for mounting a weapon, or for communications). In addition, there were a couple of what appeared to be civilian trucks although I didn't see any civilians. I've traveled this road hundreds of times and it's not unusual to see one or two humvees on the road going out to check on things. However, I've never seen what I consider to be a convoy of unmarked black SUV's surrounding the place. I didn't stop driving because frankly I didn't want to know what was going on.....
Any of you run across this before? Who are these mysterious black SUV's, and why were there so many of them?
