Hi Josh, listers,

The 'Ranch' is on private property and Knapp got permission to
be on it and do a story about it. I would expect that after
Knapp's story appeared, you in fact would get the "curiosity
seekers " who would do just about anything to get on the grounds
of the ranch. If you own the ranch and somebody gets killed,
injured on the ranch, it is likely they or the family are going
to sue, and blather about why didn't anybody post warnings, why
didn't anybody post signs on the property etc., etc., etc.

As I recall the people who sold it were the Sherman's, and what
they did is buy a place down the road 5-10 miles, where
apparently their lives have gotten back to normal. I would make
the observation that being a caretaker and only being on the
ranch when you needed to be, versus having your family 'living'
on the ranch and having all the strange things happen to you on
a constant basis would be two different things all together.

Apparently the lid is being lifted and we will get some
information as to what NIDS in fact found... in next week's
installment. First the history, then the meat... blah, blah.

Kind of like Sci-fi Roswell. First the history, then another
special as to what the artifacts actually were...stay tuned.

This thought would be lost on many people, who might be inclined
to dismiss it as paranoia on the part of the people you are
buying it from rather then weird wolves and creatures,
diminsional type doorways, and UFOs.

As I mentioned earlier the family is not actually living on the
ranch but in fact live down the road somewhere. Dan Sherman just
goes back to do his job. As I understand it Dan and his family
signed Non Disclosure Agreements with NIDS/Bigelow of their own
free will and choice so they are not able to talk about
anything.


Cheers,

Robert
