From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Glenn Campbell, Las Vegas) Date: Sat, 11 Jan 1997 21:16:04 -0800 Subject: How to get to Giant Rock and Integretron, CA On the way back to Vegas from Southern California I dropped by at the Integretron to see if it was still for sale. The integretron is a dome shaped building designed by 1950's contactee George Van Tassel to channel alien energy in some manner that is not entirely clear to me. Anyway, for those interested in UFO history, here is how to get there and how to get to nearby Giant Rock, a popular gathering point for 1950s believers awaiting alien contact. Both are in the Mojave desert about 12-15 miles north of Yucca Valley, which itself is about 2 hours east of Los Angeles. From the junction of Routes 62 and 247, go about 12.5 miles north on 247 to Linn Road. Turn east on Linn Road, and go three miles until you see the domed building. The road is paved all the way there. About a year ago, the building was for sale, but the for-sale signs are now gone, as are the signs describing the Integretron to visitors. There used to be periodic tours of the building, but it isn't clear whether they are still being held. You'll probably have to be satisfied with what you can see from the road. Giant Rock is about three miles away on a sandy dirt road that any vehicle can handle. From the Integretron, continue on Linn Road, which turns to dirt. Bear left at the first fork. About 1.5 miles later, you'll encounter another fork. Keep right here and go another 1.5 miles until you come to it -- a giant rock. This is a spectacular place for a landing, better than Devil's Tower in my estimation. It appears to be BLM land. There used to be a dwelling underneath the rock. A hermit lived there until a standoff with Sheriff's deputies in which the hermit blew himself up with dynamite. You can find the story of both the Integretron and Giant Rock in David Darlington's Mojave book. See http://www.ufomind.com/catalog/m/mojave. One interesting thing I encountered a mile or two north of Giant Rock were old signs for a Marine Corps Gunnery Range -- outside the boundaries of the Twentynine Palms Marine Corps base. It suggests that the military land was nearly adjacent to Giant Rock at one time -- a sinister connection for a major UFO landing zone. If it is BLM land, Giant Rock would be an ideal location for an all-night Interceptors vigil to await the arrival of our Space Brothers. The location is isolated enough that there are no man-made lights visible and the sky is clear. Maybe some weekend this spring would be good. If we all hold hands and send out our love to them, maybe they will come!!!
