Everyday this week…Brett Rounsaville brings us the Weirdest Places to Visit in America.
I’ve been getting ready for a big trip to Bryce Canyon later this week, which subsequently led me to thinking about my former life as America’s favorite vagrant, which in turn practically forced me to choose this week’s topic…Weirdest Places in America!
Today, we’re starting things off the only way Weird Things knows how…with crazy people and aliens.
“UFO WELCOME CENTER” (I can only assume the message is intended to be seen from space.)
The UFO Welcome Center is a labor of love for Jody Pendarvis who built the (*ahem*) Center in his back yard. Behind his trailer. Next to his rusted old pickup truck. (Yeah, he’s that guy.)
The welcome center mostly consists of two plywood and metal saucers stacked on top of each other. The bottom one, and bigger of the two, is built “to be a place where aliens could be comfortable meeting people from Earth.” (Apparently aliens prefer environments that have racked up double-digit building code violations.)
The second saucer balances on the first for easy removal when the alien visitors decide to take Jody aboard with them. It has also become Jody’s de facto “summer home.” It’s mostly filled with extension cords and an airbed…
What do you guys think? I REALLY want to see this place in person! Has anyone out there visited? What’s your impression?
Most importantly, what’s the Weirdest Place in America YOU’VE seen?!
