So you want to storm Area 51. You’ve joined the Facebook group, you’ve seen the memes and you follow the hashtags. So where do you start?
The first thing you’ll want to consider is the time of year. Area 51 is in Nevada and Nevada around September can still be pretty hot so you’ll want to dress for warmer weather. You’ll also want to pack some water and snacks as well.
Area 51 is a pretty heavily guarded US military base where the guards pretty much are instructed to shoot and kill any intruders – but they can’t stop us all AM I RIGHT?
That’s why we have put together this fun list of things you need in order to successfully storm Area 51 with your friends, peers and family and make a day out of it while checking out the aliens.
The first thing you’ll need is a safe and secure military grade water bottle holder. You can get these from amazon for a relatively low price. Strap this on your back and your hands will be free as you Naruto run your way into the heavily guarded military base.
In case something happens, you can never be too safe. If you’re storming Area 51 and an alien scratches you or you get grazed with a 40 cal, you’ll need to have a first aid kit to heal yourself.
You’re there to see the aliens. You need to blend in. In order to do so, you’ll need to look like one of them in order for them to not see you as a threat. That’s where these alien sunglasses come in. Furthermore, if any of the guards see you, they will simply think you are an alien yourself and throw you in the alien cages with the other aliens – and you get to check out the aliens. It’s a win win.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in Area 51, you’ll need a replica of the Needler from Halo. Don’t sell yourself short. This thing is expensive but go big or go home.
Unless you live in Nevada, you need to get to Nevada one way or another. Flying is for losers – that’s why you need to drop a few hundred dollars on an Uber to drive you from anywhere in the country to Area 51.
In all seriousness, you probably shouldn’t try to storm Area 51 because that top secret military base is authorized to use deadly force to stop anyone from trespassing. Sure technically they may not be able to stop EVERYONE, but they’ll sure stop a lot.
