VASQUEZ ROCKS STAR TREK FILMING LOCATION! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 734

VASQUEZ ROCKS STAR TREK FILMING LOCATION – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 734 – Fireball, Kathie and Ken head to Vasquez Rocks in Agua Dulce. Site of where they filmed many TV Shows including the 1960’s Star Trek. Funniness ensues.

Vazquez Rocks is prominently seen in a 1963 episode of Outer Limits called “The Zanti Misfits”.

The rocks are also in several television westerns, including the 1959 “Whipsaw” episode of Tombstone Territory; the Bonanza episode “Between Heaven and Earth”; The Wild Wild West episode “The Night of the Cadre”; and the opening credits of the TV Western Laramie as Slim Sherman and Jess Harper come riding down, each from one side.

The rock formations are also seen in the Michael Jackson music video “Black or White” when he dances with Plains Native Americans, and in an original series Star Trek episode “Arena”, where Captain Kirk rolls a boulder onto a reptiloid alien called a Gorn.

The prominent rock formation has been nicknamed “Kirk’s Rock” due to being featured in several Star Trek episodes, each time representing a different planet.

The use of the rock as a place to struggle with an enemy was echoed in the film Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey twice, once replaying the Gorn-themed Star Trek episode on the TV, and again when the title characters are murdered by their doubles at the same location.

A scene at a diner in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was filmed in front of the rocks, and in homage to the Star Trek episode, the diner is called The Arena Diner.

About La Jolla Canyon from HIKESPEAK…

Point Mugu State Park protects 15,000 acres of rustic wilderness on the west end of the Santa Monica Mountains between Oxnard and Malibu. More than 70 miles of trails explore this sprawling park, leaving hikers with options. An excellent way to experience Point Mugu State Park is to set out on a daunting and rewarding 11.75-mile loop. Start at the mouth of La Jolla Canyon just across Highway One from the Pacific Ocean. hike up the east side of the canyon on Ray Miller Trail, take Overlook Fire Road inland to La Jolla Valley Fire Road, cross a mountain valley toward Mugu Peak, then follow an ocean-side mountainside trail back into La Jolla Canyon just in time to pass over a short waterfall on the way back to the trailhead. If that sounds like a lot, it is. This is one heck of a hike!

There is 1,225 feet of elevation difference between the trailhead and the high point of the hike, Mugu Peak, a remarkable perch over the Pacific. The ocean views along this loop could easily be the very best in the Santa Monica Mountains. The mountains and grasslands inland from the coast also make for pleasant hiking.

From the La Jolla Canyon Day Use Area in Point Mugu State Park, locate Ray Miller Trail, which will be on the right as you look inland from the parking lot. Straight ahead, La Jolla Canyon Trail goes up canyon toward a seasonal waterfall. This will be the return route for the loop. To start, ascend the east ridge of the canyon on Ray Miller Trail, the western end of the Backbone Trail. The single track winds up the ridge, steadily gaining close to a thousand feet of elevation over 2.75 miles to a junction with Overlook Fire Road.

CREEPY ABANDONED MICROWAVE TOWER HIKE! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 567

SECRET MALIBU MICROWAVE TOWER HIKE! – FMV567
Fireball and Kathie take the 2017 FIAT 124 to the “Rim of the World” in Malibu, hit the Backbone trail to a secret Microwave Tower. They find bliss. Also, some great inspiration!

From WELIKELA… Have you ever heard of the abandoned relay tower that sits perched high atop the canyons of Calabasas near Backbone Trail? You haven’t? Well, let me introduce to one of L.A.’s coolest ruins.

Now, in terms of history I heard several different things about what “Stunt Tower” may actually used to have been, with some claiming it’s an old AT&T radio tower, while others saying it was part of the NIKE missile defense program or was used by the LAFD as a watch.

You can really find a definitive source online about the origins, but I guess in some ways the mysteriousness only adds to the lore.

Whatever the tower used to be, today it resides as a graffiti torn shell of it’s former shelf, but a shell with an epic panoramic view of Los Angeles County and the Pacific Coast.

As the title of the article suggests, the tower is located on private property and we do not advocate or advise trespassing to access the tower.

This is an abandoned microwave signal relay tower. Part of the AT&T long lines communications network built during the cold war to resist potential WWIII and keep communications flowing.

The AT&T microwave towers were used for both civil and government communications. They were mostly built in the 50s and early 60s, and moved the Bell System’slong-distance communications off of copper wires for a large part of the network. Some communications went over transcontinental cables, others over microwave links. The buildings supporting the towers were hardened against a nuclear blast, and some of them in high-danger areas were underground.

The towers themselves were engineered to withstand all but a close (within 5 miles) blast. The microwave horns were covered with a protective shield to keep out not only the elements, but also radioactive fallout. The buildings were shielded with copper to protect the equipment against the Electromagnetic Pulse associated with a nuclear explosion. Foot-thick concrete walls protected the vital electronics and people inside the base installations of these towers.

Thick copper grounds went deep into the bedrock beneath each tower. Fallout showers, backup generators, sleeping facilities all existed to keep the network up in times of war.

HIKE TO THE ORIGINAL M*A*S*H* 4077 TV SET! FMV565

WATCH! Fireball and Kathie hike 2 miles to the original Set for the TV Show M.A.S.H. Yes, still some cars there! Then, Fireball builds a Japanese Ramen Burger!

About M.A.S.H. from Wiki… M*A*S*H is an American television series developed by Larry Gelbart, adapted from the 1970 feature film MASH (which was itself based on the 1968 novel MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors, by Richard Hooker). The series, which was produced with 20th Century Fox Television for CBS, follows a team of doctors and support staff stationed at the “4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital” in Uijeongbu, South Korea during the Korean War. The show’s title sequence features an instrumental-only version of “Suicide Is Painless”, the theme song from the original film. The show was created after an attempt to film the original book’s sequel, M*A*S*H Goes to Maine, failed. The television series is the best-known version of the M*A*S*H works, and one of the highest-rated shows in U.S. television history.

The series premiered in the U.S. on September 17, 1972, and ended on February 28, 1983, with the finale, showcased as a television film, titled “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen”, becoming the most-watched and highest-rated single television episode in U.S. television history at the time, with a record-breaking 125 million viewers (60.2 rating and 77 share),[1] according to the New York Times.[2] It had struggled in its first season and was at risk of being cancelled.[3] Season two of M*A*S*H placed it in a better time slot (airing after the popular All in the Family); the show became one of the top 10 programs of the year and stayed in the top 20 programs for the rest of its run.[3] It is still broadcast in syndication on various television stations. The series, which depicted events occurring during a three-year military conflict, spanned 256 episodes and lasted 11 seasons. The Korean conflict lasted 1,128 days, meaning each episode of the series would have averaged almost four and a half days of real time. Many of the stories in the early seasons are based on tales told by real MASH surgeons who were interviewed by the production team. Like the movie, the series was as much an allegory about the Vietnam War (still in progress when the show began) as it was about the Korean War.[4]

The episodes “Abyssinia, Henry” and “The Interview” were ranked number 20 and number 80, respectively, on TV Guide’s 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time in 1997.[5] In 2002, M*A*S*H was ranked number 25 on TV Guide’s 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time.[6] In 2013, the Writers Guild of America ranked it as the fifth-best written TV series ever[7] and TV Guide ranked it as the eighth-greatest show of all time.

SECRET NAZI CAMP HIDEOUT HIKE is Vlog 563!


Fireball and Kathie start out this Vlog by heading to Murphy Ranch. A Top Secret Nazi Hideout Camp from the 40’s. Then, the 2017 FIAT 124 Spider arrives at the pad.

About MURPHY RANCH from Wiki… The Murphy Ranch is a ranch built in Rustic Canyon, Los Angeles in the 1930s by Winona and Norman Stephens, who were sympathizers of the anti-semitic, white supremacist Silver Legion of America. The owner of record in 1933 was Jessie M. Murphy. Designed as a base for Nazi activities in the U.S., it was intended to be capable of being self-sustaining for long periods. The compound had a water storage tank, a fuel tank, a bomb shelter, and various outbuildings and bunkers. The estate’s main gate was designed by Paul Williams, a well-known African-American architect in the Southern California area.

On Monday, December 8, 1941, the day after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, local police occupied the compound and detained members of the 50-strong caretaker force.

As of 1990, it was abandoned and in a state of disrepair, and covered in graffiti. The site is currently owned by the city of Los Angeles. In early 2016, many of the ranch buildings were demolished, as they were deemed unsafe. A few buildings remain, including the “power house”, an all concrete building that once contained the diesel generators, however, all entryways have been sealed.
