Nevada desert

Took some friends and trips to the desert. Plenty of trails, mines, and places your not supposed to be in!

Overlook from the campsite

The ladder went 200ft down, we got tired climbing back up!

Undercover of darkness we werent here

Im still trying to figure out how im going to mount this to the SMB


Is this an option for the van yet?


My new lighting



It took a couple days before I stopped glowing!

Jayson, That's awesome.
I especially like your lighting.

What part of Nevada is that? That is a cool trip.

Most of the trip was south of fallon Nevada which is about 60 miles from reno. The photos at night are on a ACTIVE bombing range!


helicopter running the perimeter before f-18's came in for practice! During the week is the best time to go. If the lights are on at night someone is heading in for practice! I have the gps for a road that will get you next to the base but do so at your own risk. Me and my friends would never do something so foolish!(I dont even know where those photos came from come to think of it)

Project Shoal is more east of Fallon near sand mtn, the map labels it as Dept of Energy, The road from the bombing range will also take you there.

The daytime photos of tanks are in Dixie Valley also east of Fallon , and as far as I know are ok to go look at

Be carefull out there!

185* !!! Found this hot spring just takeing a dirt road on a whim

Dang, how do you do that without getting "talked" too?

We run Bradshaw trail out here that runs along the live bombing range and if you go 10 feet into it, they know about it.

Very interesting. Yep, you must have connections or be very stealth. When I ride dirtbikes out by Fort Irwin there is NO WAY anyone can stray into an off-limits area. If you don't notice the big fence, you will notice the MPs approaching at full speed.

The order of your photos makes it look like you climbed down that mineshaft into a secret underground military base with tanks and bombs!

Can you share GPS coordinates?
