Adventure travel not according to plan!

These ADV guys had an idea they might get into trouble riding here...

Biggest fools ever, or you'd try it too?

It was stupid, but they didnt do anything illegal.

I'd rather be in that situation than have a cop point a gun at me. Marines are better trained.

I've worked on a couple military bases, the Marines take security very seriously. You should not do anything that even looks out of place.

I've seen these guys before, and yes it's dumb. From what they said the guys with guns are hired from a private firm, not the Marines. Though I could be wrong. Why even screw around, you'll never get close enough to see anything of value and you could be in the kind of trouble that makes civilian court look like romper room...

Marines

I had a question but then I found the real video link. I'll post it above as this one is a clone site. Apparently, they aren't active military as there are too many things wrong with the uniform.

After watching the video again, they are not in standard Marine uniforms.

And all the Marines I saw on base carried AR-15s, and an occasional M60.

They did drive around in white full sized trucks, as well as military vehicles.

Travel to the Area 51 border signs is a bit of a tourist attraction. You can pay someone to drive you out there.

This tour accidentally crossed the line.

Brings back memories of a hot summer night blasting up a dead end canyon for fun with my buddy on his CB-750F, me on my 750 Turbo Kaw somewhere in Central WA. We stopped for a breather and piss break, when all of a sudden lights and a guy in all black with M-16 comes out of the bushes and makes nice nice.

Apparently a recently reopened gold mine had hired security and they did not like random people out on the public roads at night. We told him to piss off....not really. We obliged by leaving, dicks intact.
