Little Ale’Inn and the Black mailbox

After our ghost town adventure in Ballarat, we began our grand detour and made our way to Rachel, Nevada. We arrived at the Little Ale’Inn later that afternoon, with no further delays or road closures. The Little Ale’Inn  offers free tent camping on their property as well as several RV hook ups and a few mobile guest trailers that they rent out daily. This was my third time camping there whilst road tripping. I had the pleasure of chatting with an old timer Marine who had a Pharaoh’s horses tattoo he had gotten from Singapore Slim in Anchorage, Alaska  in 1961.

We witnessed no UFO activity coming from the base while camping that night 😦 . The following morning, we packed up camp, had a good breakfast at the Inn, then headed 20 miles further down Route 375 to the Black mailbox.
