Says who?

Wasn't the Roswell crash site, in fact, on a RANCH?

BTW, didn't you post earlier that you could not actually find
the location the cameraman spoke of? I refer to the following
post you wrote some months ago:

Sorry, Bob. But if you couldn't find the location that the
cameraman was talking about, then how would you really know if
there are any barns close to it or not?

Hi Larry,

Actually, they do. A company I used to work for had me doing
quite a bit of aeriel photography in the southwest. On just a
few of the trips I made over New Mexico, the landscape was
dotted with barns and barn-like structures. Because ranches are
usually large, the barns are going to be closer to the main
residence and, therefore, not near the main roads. Unless you
were traveling by air or crossing private property, you probably
would not see them. But, make no mistake, they are there. Beyond
that, my cousin raises race horses and knows hundreds of people
in New Mexico that have barns. In fact, there's probably as many
barns per hundred square miles of New Mexico as there are in any
other ranch country.

I couldn't agree more. What's worse, so much time has slipped by
that there is now a growing myth that since the AA footage
hasn't been "cracked" yet by experts it, therefore, might be the
real deal.

Take care,

Roger Evans
