Thinking of Storming Area 51? Here Are Some Things To Help You With Your Travel Plans

Area 51 is a U.S. Air Force military installation located at Groom Lake in southern Nevada. Acquired by the U.S. in 1955, the installation has been the focus of numerous conspiracies involving extraterrestrial life, although its only confirmed use is as a flight testing facility.

There are all sorts of mysteries surrounding Area 51, since regular people aren’t allowed to visit it. The conspiracy theorists have also had a field day about the area for nearly 65 years.

Anyway, Facebook, being Facebook, has the capability to make things go viral, so when Matty Roberts, a Bakersfield, CA college student, made a Facebook event to “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop Us All,” people took notice and, as of this writing, nearly 2 million people are signed up and another million and a half are “interested.”

Hey, Did You Know That We Have A Facebook Group?

If you’re new to our travel blog, you may not know that we also have a Facebook Group that’s 100% devoted to travel. We’d just LOVE if you would join us!

Travel: Disney, the US, Points, Miles, Savings & Everything Everywhere Else features past and present posts from Your Mileage May Vary, as well as travel-related posts from other bloggers and various forms of mainstream (and not so mainstream) media outlets. We also offer daily money-saving deals, and funny or introspective looks at all types of travel. And if you’re a Disney fan, heads up that we put at least one special focus on Disney parks just about every day, usually with “different” stuff that the larger Disney blogs generally don’t focus on.

FB Travel Board PicWe’re proud that our group has nearly 5,000 members who live all around the world and many who have traveled all around it, too – the U.S., Canada, Australia, Central America, South America, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and all over Europe and the U.K. (we have LOTS of people from every part of the U.K.)! So if you’re traveling internationally, chances are good we have people who can answer questions and give advice, either because they live there and/or they’ve visited there.

We also offer the opportunity for other Facebook groups to let our members know they’re out there, in case they’d like to join other groups that focus on travel to specific places (Orlando, Universal, Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, Lapland, etc.), travel in certain situations (with kids, without kids, fans of specific hotel brands, issues with certain travel companies, people of size, etc.), saving money on travel, or just travel in general.

So yeah – Travel: Disney, the US, Points, Miles, Savings & Everything Everywhere Else (we weren’t purposely trying for the longest FB group name in history, but we wanted to include a lot of everything we talk about in the group, so there ya go). Hope to see you there!

Like this post? Please share it! We have plenty more just like it and would love if you decided to hang around and clicked the button on the top (if you’re on your computer) or the bottom (if you’re on your phone/tablet) of this page to follow our blog and get emailed notifications of when we post (it’s usually just two or three times a day). Or maybe you’d like to join our Facebook group (HEY, DID YA KNOW WE HAVE A FACEBOOK GROUP? LOLOL!), where we talk and ask questions about travel (including Disney parks), creative ways to earn frequent flyer miles and hotel points, how to save money on or for your trips, get access to travel articles you may not see otherwise, etc. Whether you’ve read our posts before or this is the first time you’re stopping by, we’re really glad you’re here and hope you come back to visit again!
