  • The original, and the substitute mailbox are long gone and now there is a replacement box that someone put there and is obviously not used by the Postal System anymore. It is now just a fun photo stop...  more »
  • Fun stop. Only did it because of the movie, Paul. It is not even the real "black mailbox." Only stop to check something off your bucket list.  more »
  • If you are into the ET highway, or Aliens, or just really cool things, this is a must stop! Very cool stuff left from folks passing by. Lots of notes left for the aliens. We had so much fun exploring ...  more »

  • The black mailbox just stood there and did nothing. Wouldn't answer any of our questions. Just acted as if it was a mailbox. Which, of course, we all know is nonsense. But that night while camping nearby strange orange lights lit up the sky over Area 51. Awesome light show. Black mailbox had no comment next morning. He's somewhat of a snob, I fear.
  • Me and my mates been talking about doing this trip for years. Finally went and spent the night star gazing and shooting off fireworks with desert weirdos. The next morning got hasseled by dudes in camo.
  • The only place i know where you can send a letter to an alien. No mail pick up times posted, but you could always just wait around and see if you have a close encounter.
