Sarah Giampia thought the first event was a success due to its "primal state," while Donna Meichtry belives aliens just don't want humanity to stagnate. My first stop on my slow adventure toward the unknown at Area 51 was the "Storm Area 51 Basecamp," an event set up just outside of Hiko, Nevada.
The alien "poop" is really just rocks.
The Colorado couple also sold geode "embryos. They hope this will become an annual "alien lovers gathering" because it would be good for business, but mostly because they were having fun.
