Location 19: Nellis

Abandon hope all ye who enter here
Unfortunately, this is as close as I could get to Nellis Air Force Base; no prizes for guessing why. (For the same reason, places like the Nevada Test Site don't appear in this blog.) But I think I've got the location right: notice the huts either side of the vehicle entrance, and the low wall in front of the right one?
"Meet new people, understand
them, and drop high-explosive
ordnance on their heads."

Nellis AFB is HUGE, covering thousands of acres of Nevada. In fact, a sizeable percentage of Nevada as a whole is government-owned and much of this is fenced off; you only notice it when you're a long way offroad. But let's face it, you don't want to go sniffing around a nuclear test site anyway, even if half-life's shorter than time since test.

It's time for some R&R at the Gomorrah Casino.

  1. I'm stationed at Nellis AFB right now. It's not like the game at all. There are a lot of solar panels on another part of the base that isn't connected to the main part of the base.

    So the us army actually starts shelling the area if you walk nearby? what attention to detail!
