As an immature bachelor many years ago, I made elaborate plans to move to a "UFO hotspot" and live out my life there, becoming rich and famous on
the strength of my sightings and photographs. I actually did
research the hell out of the subject, and did
find a location that
answered all of my "hotspot" criteria: Prescott, Arizona
The place was (and I think still is
) sort of a hub of UFO and UFO-minded activity in the Southwest United States. Well, keep in mind that
Arizona itself is one of the strangest places on Earth, and I'm not just speaking in the metaphysical sense — Arizona is a geologic, meteorologic,
meteoritic and anthropologic Twilight Zone
, even before you throw into the mix the mystic tribal
presence, as well as a good long
history. Then, like a cherry on top, Arizona hosts some of the hottest UFOs, to boot.
is situated kind of equi-distant to everything that is cool in Arizona, plus it has drawn a mighty contingent of UFO seekers over the
decades. These wouldn't be the foppish Roswellian
UFO souvenir-seekers, either. I'm talking about the hardcore
UFO seekers. I believe several of their "groups" are still to be found in and around Prescott to this day.
Anyway, I contacted real estate professionals in Prescott, learned all I could about the area's projected growth, including the fact that it's
retirement property, beautiful ponderosa pine country, and growing commercially by leaps and bounds. I was seriously
move there and start my life anew as a UFO hunter, had even made my hotel reservations for the exploratory visit...
And then the Great Wheel of Fate
turned, and I found myself traveling in the opposite direction
from Prescott, Arizona, finally settling
upon an island off the Florida coast. I still have the feeling that other forces
were at work in preventing me from moving to Prescott, AZ.
But, then, I had a few really good
sightings in Florida, and
in Texas, and
in the Carolinas, as well.
It probably isn't so much a matter of where
you hunt as it is a matter of your hunting technique
. I would suggest looking
a great deal — that has always worked for me.
No, seriously. You'd be surprised at how many people never
into the sky.
