We’re as curious as the next person about the goings on in the infamous Area 51 in Nevada, only a few hours north of Las Vegas. Is it a secret alien compound or a testing site for the U.S. Air Force? (Okay, so very probably the latter, but it’s fun to dream.) Either way, after watching this video, we will definitely not be going to check it out for ourselves.
The two “adventure travelers” who shot the vid certainly got a dose of adventure when they drove by signs behind Area 51 that warned about the authorized use of deadly force used against trespassers, and were stopped at gunpoint and frisked by guards dressed in camo.
The pair rode by the white truck on their motorcycles, commenting that there were a couple of the “camo dudes” inside–the same guards they’d seen last time they were in the area.
Moments later, the truck comes speeding back up the road towards them, and two guards hop out of the vehicle with guns drawn and proceed to search the trespassers before telling them to “get the f**& out of here!”
Clearly shaken, the two men get back on their motorcycles and ride away.
“That was the most gnarly thing I’ve ever been in,” says one of the bikers. “That was crazy, they were so aggressive,” replies the other.
Yeah, we bet it was crazy.
Maybe next time, consider turning around at the signs that mention the use of deadly force (aliens or no aliens). That’s usually a pretty good indicator of when you should head back the way you came.
