Don't think twice about renting a car and driving out. As long as the only off pavement driving you plan on doing is Groom Lake Road any car will do. If you plan more than that there are a few places you can get a suv cheap. Just thoroughly check out the car, tires, fluids, and spare before you leave the lot. Then grab at least a few gallons of water before you leave town. May be over kill, but it never hurts. I think most people are excited and completely intimidated their first trip out. You can read about it all you want but once you get away from town there are no words for the remoteness. It is very cool and worth it! Also don't get worked up over the Camo Dudes. They are just doing their job and as long as you stay on your side of the border there are no issues. Enjoy!
