If you can get Mulder or Scully to come along it should be a lot easier. They seem to have a way with the aliens.

It is a pretty simple area. There's is one very difficult spot (often damaging), which you can see in the pics on the EE site. We did it at night once - pretty hairy.

Did you guys end up hitting Area 51? A small group of us went up on sunday for the afternoon. The begining was the most fun but not much of an issue. I took my '97 D90 locked fr and 2 disco set up the same. God times up and back in a couple of hours.

Later, Paul
