May be true, may not be true. I certainly don't know. I do however think that IF the government had a secret base/city underground as the story goes they would NOT have truck drivers delivering directly to the base. That makes no sense to me. Here is a "secret base" and we have truck drivers delivering materials like its a Walmart? I don't see that as plausible.


Second this. That is one part that didn't make sense to me either. maybe there's more to the story, but then again maybe there's not.

Good to hear from someone familiar with the area.


How was the hunting there?

The hunting was outstanding! Mule Deer, White-tailed deer, javalina, wild hogs, mountain lions, turkey, etc. The only drawback was the drive from Dallas; as I recall it, the drive was about 8 hours and the drive time was the reason we left the lease after 2 years. I'd love to go hunt that region again if the opportunity ever presents itself.

just thought I would add that I did find it odd, or perhaps just coincidental, that the guy claimed this event to happen and then I come across this one video about it. Who knows, maybe the guy came across the same video and decided to make the story his own.

HIs claimed past employment with the government also made me wonder if it had anything to do with him "going off the grid" as he claimed.

To be fair, I used to work for the government, opening mail.

touché sir.

This guy told my friend that he worked for the government having something to do with weapons. He went into his knowledge about lasers or something for a while. Which, oddly enough, I got paired playing golf with a guy who was a defense contractor for the government and they specialized in lasers a few months ago in New Mexico. But that's a whole other story that's honestly not that interesting.

It's a bit hard to believe since he is now a trucker. But he claims he took a job doing that after he got off the grid. Again, this is all from my friend that talked to him.

Oh yeah I forgot about the whole weapons part of it. From Lord of weapons to driving a truck (for somebody else I assume)
Who knows.
The whole secret base thing is an interesting thing in itself.

What i dont get about these types of stories (underground military bases - top secret) is how do you keep something a secret if thousands n thousands of people know about it.... anything short of mind control cannot explain this. This is beyond compartmentalization.



I love it whenever I hear someone ask this very question....

Simple fact of the matter is, when people work for the government, they become indoctrinated in a society of silence.

When I was on site at the DOD installation at Bolling AFB, I regularly had lunch with people who to this day, I have NO farking clue what they did. And, you just know, not to ask.

I ate along side foreign soldiers who were there for School of the Americas.....you don't ask...you say hello, you smile...and you eat. That's it. No small talk.

These are people who go home every night, and say NOTHING to their families. And their families KNOW not to ASK *anything* about what their loved one does, because, quite simply, they won't answer.

You folks..."if it's so secret, how do they keep it secret"....

you just have NO clue.....When your livelyhood, and the support of your family rides on your ability to SHUT THE F#$K UP about what you do, where you go every day, what you see and experience....you do it.

Pure and simple.

Spend some time in the Northern VA area, or DC, or the surrounding suburbs of Maryland....

Get to know the people....

And you'll be able to verify EVERYTHING I just said.



One time, I made a very simple mistake of asking ONE too many questions about someone did for a living....



I never heard from them again. Not once.

Who knows? If he did work for the government before and had any sort of classification he probably was paid fairly well. It is not that hard to get a commercial drivers license and buy a truck and trailer if you have the $$. The fact that he previously worked for the government might have made it easier for him to get government contracts... especially if he owned his own truck.... and the drivers that work for themselves make really good money.

You might have said something important and not have known!

In a SHTF scenario would it not be an advantage if you had a base becide rich oil fields...

Edited: As I posted you did also, but again the point you made about the game fit with my above resouce theory.

Howdy Folks, I live less than 2 hours from Iraan TX, My job is to supply electrical equipment to oilfields in west Texas, I drive 200 + miles a day around here (I live south of "BigFatFurryTexan" for you oldtimers reading this)

I wonder if this "base" was even dug out at all, consider, we have the caves of Sonora, we also are pumping oil out of the ground (when not out right fracking) at ever increasing rates, who's to say they are not creating large "voids" underground, and "if so" what better use than a secret "facility" for government use?

the con of this of course IS the fracking going on, they have already had earthquakes around these parts because of it, but when did the US government ever worry about a few hazards????

I may have to take a trip up there with my GPS, and my digital camera and take a look around, "just prospecting future delivery sites" of course.........

You're 100% correct. It's all very easy to do and obtain. However buying, registering and insuring a rig along with obtaining a CDL is the exact opposite of being "off grid" and casts a rather negative pall over the alleged story. That's a fairly hefty paper trail and you're subjected to random checkpoints on a pretty regular basis where they check not just your load but your credentials.

There are some things "secret" I'm not allowed to talk about and I know for a fact that people don't believe it exists. So what is really out there?

If you were hypothesizing about things that people don't believe exist, but might, what would your top 3 guesses be?

secret texas base? really? i've been inside a mountain in massachusetts that almost completely hollow! and very few people in massachusetts even know its there! you mentioned NSA. What snowden is talking about, the NSA already admitted to doing, to PLAYBOY magazine, back in the late 70's/early 80's! SURPRISE. the only thing new in the world is the history you don't know! the only ting the NSA is "guilty" of is adapting to advances in information and signals technology! snowden is a traitor, just like manning! betcha manning is feeling REALLY good about himself now. if he could have kept his mouth shut, and wasn't a complete IDIOT! he could be still proudly serving in the US ARMY! nice job. intell specialist my butt!
enjoy rotting in your cell ! and to all you Bi and GAY folks serving on active duty? rock on with your fab selves!

Well, it's certainly an interesting story. The first thing I did was check a satellite view map of the area, and there are hills. I did this because I know some parts of west Texas are VERY flat. In a lot of places in Texas, too, you'd have to cut into bedrock to do any real digging. That's the main reason most homes in Texas don't have basements. So, at least the terrain matches what we are told.

Then, I watched the video. The first thing that I noticed was the vehicles were called "Hummers", instead of "humvees", which would be the military version. Now, it's possible this was simply the way he thought of them, but it's worth noting. The biggest problem I have with this, though, is that some trucker, with no nondisclosure agreement, would be driven in to such a place, and allowed to see enough to identify laundromats, etc. If this was a secret base, they would NOT have random drivers going in and out. You can't even walk into a building with restricted access, in any area where you could see anything at all, and in some cases, not even through the front door. That, I KNOW, because my husband used to be in intel. A secret base would surely have tighter controls on who could and couldn't come in, even to a loading area! For such a case, I would expect to have someone deliver a trailer to the location, and drop it for another rig to pick up. If entry was that easy, there wouldn't be much secrecy.

As I google map the place, I see no evidence in the form of air vents or large traffic pattern that would indicate a Base. But what i do find is an unusual amount of newer and cleaner cars and truck in the town for a such back water place compared to the surrounding towns. Also the car tags I can see seem to be from out of state on a lot of them. The town also seems much newer in buildings. It all could be from oil revenue but the amount of shiny autos in town leads me to think otherwise...

Sirric


Where did you look? I picked a random street, and saw some older cars, about what I would expect for the area. If there are newer ones there, not everyone has them. The buildings all looked pretty old, too. Best guess is this is a typical west Texas town, with some old, and some new.
