Mid-July, my family and I were on the tail end of a 2-week road trip across six states in the Western US, driving back from California towards home,
Colorado. We were on I-80 E, not quite in the middle of Nevada when we started seeing extremely, extremely large convoys of military trucks &
equipment headed in the opposite direction, I-80W. Where we were, going east takes you straight through Salt Lake City, and going west takes you
straight through San Francisco. The only major through-ways or highways that junction off of the interstate in Nevada take you down towards Las
Vegas, which you could then take down to LA (pretty sure). So, not sure where this was headed, but don't think there was a base anywhere near to
where these vehicles were traveling, and I believe the closest place these could have been coming from, would be somewhere near the Dugway Proving
Grounds in Utah. Maybe further, but by process of elimination, and speaking from a regional sense, that's what I deduced.
Anyway.... there were at least 30-40 separate vehicles, separated by about 5 minutes in each group, 5-7 per group. They were the trucks with the
fabric on the back, desert-colored, with something in the back, like dark green metal boxes, pretty big, stacked up. More interesting, however, were
the semis. The semis were in the middle of the group of vehicles, dark green army-colored cab, with an open trailer, with more of these big green
metal boxes, but much bigger than the ones on the smaller trucks. They were stacked two high front to back, two semis together in the middle of each
group. Separated between each group were regular semis with company (civilian names) on the white cab, but with the same metal boxes on them. After
all the military vehicles were done going past, later on, maybe with an hour, we saw more of the civilian semis with the same green metal boxes
stacked on them, headed in the same direction. My question is, why would they have civilian vehicles carrying military supplies or equipment?
Reminded me SO much of "Close Encounters" when they gassed the town in Wyoming and brought in equipment using military semis with fake civilian
logos on the outside.
I was ALL OVER the western US and didn't see one weird thing until Nevada and then later, here in Colorado, where I always see weird stuff
two weeks after we got back, we started seeing, until last week, the large military choppers with the double rotors or whatever the blade things are
called, in twos, doing laps around the front range. Though I'm used to see military copters and do think it's weird, haven't seen these before,
not in pairs day and night. Looks like they are practicing doing something, by the way they fly. Haven't seen them in the past week, though.
Thought I'd throw this out there. I have been on here for a year or more talking about the odd military activity and troop movements up and down the
freeway here. Think it helps when talking about things such as are in this thread because when you have more of the big picture, can help shape
theories, possibly. Hope this helps in any small way. Don't know what it means or if it means anything at all, but I did think it was weird.
Wonder what's in those boxes???
