    Ok. So I was minding my own business trying to get some sleep at the Flying J in Ripon, CA off 99 when all of a sudden a somthing woke me up and I seen a blinding light coming through the curtain. I thought it was some O/O with them new LED headlights was backing into a hole but it was coming from the sky. I pulled on my britches and grabbed my ball peen hammer just in case and opened the door to take a look. As soon as I opened the door and started to look up to see what it was, it blinked out! I had thought it would have been a police helicopter or something but it was all quiet and nothing at all was in the sky . I looked around and noticed that everybody was still asleep so I went back to bed. Next morning at the Dennys there I was asking another driver sitting next to me if he ever saw anything weird at night. He looked at me real funny and said he seen a blinking light kinda under his breath then he didn't want to talk about it. Well, a Waitress come by just then and heard what we was talking about. She said that lots if weird stuff was seen in the sky around the truck stop for the past year. I got so bad the girls wer[​IMG] [​IMG] e scared to go to their cars at night without a man going with them. She said some big shot from headquarters gave orders not to discuss it with any customers under the threat of termination. They were more worried about losing business than our safety. So here's the weird thing. She told us she was checking Yelp to see if they got any reviews and she saw a review if Flying J about a flying saucer parked at the fuel island. She said there was pictures and everything. This is where it gets weird. Get out the tinfoil hats. She also said everybody thinks they might be fake pictures put there by corporate as disinformation to discredit the real UFOs that keep coming over the truck stop and shooting light beams down on the ground. I don't know, but I'm going tothe Loves across the street just to be safe.. ever since I got lit up like that, I got a new scar on my neck and get nose bleeds and a lot of head aches and nightmares that i won't talk about. no lie.

    Never mind the shooting here in Little Rock. Throw that onto the stack of other shootings around here. That is why I carry. Threat level is decent down there at night.

    Anyhow.

    There is a base near Mojave called Edwards I believe. That base flies at night usually with experimenal and test flights. If something happened it happened.

    I don't worry about that stuff anymore. It's not to say I don't care, I do. But Ive more important worries in life than to worry about the whoo whoo or the newest military iron.

    That was J, he lives in a nearby galaxy and flies security sorties all the time at the Ripon J to check things out. The spotlight you saw, someone was probably pissing between trailers near you and J was shaming them with his big light. It is kept on the downlow because if the FAA found out about a UFO they'd try to capture it.

    Hmm... better call Scully and Mulder. Sounds like something for the X-Files.

    Living in the Northeast, we have our share of "X-Files". Over in Jersey, many people still claim they've seen the so called Jersey Devil. Whether it's true or not is not for me to judge. If one person claimed to of seen him, I would call Loony Bin on them. But if hundreds, or thousands of people claimed to of seen him, including UFO's and Big Foots and whatnot, I can't really say that ALL of them are crazy. All I know is when I use to make deliveries in the Pine Barrons, which can be a CREEPY area, I would keep my so called Third Eye open.

    Edwards AFB is a Test/Research Facility for the Air Force. There is also a NASA Test/Research Flight Center located on the base. Both run night test flights to collect data frequently. Edwards and Area 51 both fall under the same Air Force Command, so I would not doubt they are running test/research flights at night so no one sees any of the aircraft.

    Thank you kindly sirs.

    I wish I know that old Mojave road, name or number. There is a awesome coffee shop like 200 yards from a mobile home dev just past that airfield a few miles yonder. Either it's dry enough to think a coffee is the awesomest. The durn shop sits off by itself with recent paving which by now close to 20 years may be falling in.
