Montauk , and its connection to Time~Travel


A Visit to Montauk
( Ken Wheaton, March, 1996 )

Here are a few emails received from Ken Wheaton who lives on
Long Island and tried to explore the abandoned base at Montauk.

To whom it may concern,

As a resident of the East End of Long Island for the last five years, I've heard a bit about the so-called Montauk project. In 1994 I went to the abandoned Camp Hero base with a couple of friends and turned up nothing. Contrary to the claims of Nichols et al, the radar tower was not sealed shut. But as it is a concrete building and probably has lead-lined walls, we could not see much -- it was a day trip and we had no flash lights.

But I have been in the tower itself. On March 17/18 of this year, some friends and I went to the base (still no activity) and climbed to the very top of the radar tower. Only two things of interest were found. The first was that the view from the roof of the building is probably one of the best on Long Island. The second was a small bronze plaque within the main rotor-drive of the dish (located on the top-most inner level of the structure) that read, simply, "Philadelphia." Of course this could have been a reference to Philadelphia textile. Still, it did provide a thrill -- especially when an obviously upset pigeon scared the living daylights out of us.

But the fact remains that the base, for all practical purposes, seems abandoned. Six large turbines that probably powered the base have been destroyed. And judging by the drives that rotate the dish itself, that part of the base has not been used in awhile. As to the claims that the underground is being used, I have no proof either way. Most of the bunker entrances (they were set up as fortifications during World War II) have been sealed with concrete. I'm moving away from the area in two weeks, but I plan to go back out there and see if I can gain entrance to the underground. On our first trip we did come across and interesting building that appeared to be a small guard house. This building had a ladder going down to a lower level. The lower level, however, was filled with stagnant water. It must also be pointed out that the cliffs of Montauk literally ooze with water that is apparently trapped within these old bunkers.

The State of New York technically owns the Camp Hero base and is supposed to use it as a state park. Most of it is used thusly, but the authors of the Montauk Project are right in stating that the inner base itself is off-limits. But in my three trips out there (went again today) I have yet to be harassed. And judging by the amount of grafiti inside the radar tower, not many other people are harassed.

I wanted desperately to believe that there is a Montauk project. The Philadelphia Experiment fascinates me as does time travel and UFOs. But after reading Montauk Revisited and the Pyramids of Montauk (oddly enough I couldn't find a copy of the first book), I've just about given up. Aleister Crowley, Atlantean Montauk Indians? As far as pyramids are concerned, anyone walking around the Montauk area -- especially in the Nappeague stretch -- can point out literally hundreds of dunes that look exactly like the "pyramids" discussed in the third book. As far as a particle accelerator is concerned, I haven't searched for one thoroughly yet. But there are numerous concrete circles scattered about the base that used to serve as the foundations for large guns.

It may be of interest to your readers that the State of New York is currently conducting feasibility studies to consider the possiblity of turning much of the Camp Hero property into a golf course. Whether or not the Montauk Project is true, I think that a golf course on the site would be a tragedy. As managing editor of the Montauk Pioneer (a Dan's Papers publication -- both of which are mentioned in the books), I have written editorial opposing the golf course. The property, though somewhat in shambles after years of military use, does provide for an interesting day. It's sort of like a nature walk and archaeolgical expedition combined.

Anyway, as stated above, I'm moving from the area in a couple of weeks. I've enjoyed what I've read of your site so far and I hope that these pages are kept up. As for what I've written so far, I just wanted to shed some first-hand light on the subject.

Dear Joshua,

Feel free to use what I write you, but I'd like to make on correction or addition. I mentioned that the bunkers were flooded and that the author's of Montauk Project had neglected to mention that. But upon reaching the final chapters of Pyramids of Montauk (the third book in the series), Preston Nichols did mention that the bunkers were indeed flooded within the last two years.

I just wanted to make it clear that upon completing the third book, I realized that Nichols had accounted for the flooding. I think that I had mentioned that he didn't in my first e-mail.

If you ask me, and you didn't. the whole Montauk story reeks of disinformation put out to suck up mind share or just a farce to sell books. And this is the opinion an admitted sucker who will believe just about anything.
Your "Opinion" is duly noted, in spite of the "Evidence" to support otherwise. Would you be kind enough, as to explain the basis of your opinion? I hope it's not predisposed to personal preconceived notions, of a biased judgment, because of what others would have you to believe, or because of the existence of money mongrel hoaxers.

I know that many hoaxes are alive & well in almost every aspect of business, and they do not limit themselves to scam their unsuspecting, or gullible audience to just the UFO related markets, in fact these scum of the earth "Opportunists" will put their hands in any available wallet that they can if you're not careful, or clever enough to see it coming.

Aside from that, this does not negate the possibility that UFO's, or Time~Travel, Philadelphia Experiments pertaining to early stealth experiments gone awry which lead to the discovery of invisibility via manipulation of molecular structures, or the follow up as in "Montauk" never occurred, or had no basis of reality.

I must say this in closure; I hope for the sake of argument, that the contents of the information from the links I have provided, and others, are examined carefully, and investigated from their sources, to look for the evidence that is claimed to support their ideas, before formulating biased pre-conceived opinions or borrowed beliefs of others, before oblatently discounting the possibilities that their might be some truth behind the claims of others.

If it looks like duck, and qwuacks a lot, odds are it's a duck. Hey, Peter Pan, Alice In Wonderland, and Clintons resume are all top shelf stories, but as the saying goes" truth is where you find it".

Can I refute the Myth of Montauk? Why bother, there has been NO evidence presented either way. It's a bunch of malarky.

And to save you some typing, yes it IS my biased opinion, and " my final answer".
I will count you like the other sheep during twilight shadow!

"Lead, Follow, or get the Hell out of the way!
Now that was pretty funny
. But come now Shadow, there's no need for your mind to be so conservative. What are you afraid of? That it might be true? And you are unsure how it will interfere with your life?

Well I guess some people aren't ready for the change. And for knowing the truth, for that matter.

Try and not over think things
to being so black and white. Because things aren't that simple and easy to understand.
