Quirky history: a man in a Toyota Tundra drove through neighbor's' properties and ended up at this location after hitting a fence post (property was lined with firetrucks and police to get him out), a NHP officer pitched his cruiser sideways while he was still in it to stop a drunk driver on the highway between this location and neighbors' (also in the local newspaper). A medivac was called in - landed directly on the highway. Unfortunately, human remains were located on a neighboring property which members of this location discovered. Prior to that an EOD was discovered at this location resulting in the NAS Fallon explosive department coming out to x-ray it before removing it.
