Hello, this is Joerg. Long-time Rachel resident and founder of the Dreamland Resort web site. For over 20 years I have been operating Dreamland Resort and the official Rachel, NV web site. Thank you for your interest in supporting our mission to provide information about our area and about the famous "Area 51".
I don't like ads any more than you do. So, in February of 2019 I decided to remove all advertising from this web site and take a chance in relying entirely on donations. So far this has worked better than expected. See the stats below.
Our monthly goal is $250. That is a very modest amount. Other sites that operate on a similar basis set their goal to up to 10 times that amount. Where does the money go? The monthly cost for the web site itself is about $60. I use a quality web host with virtually no down time and fast download speed. The remainder goes towards PayPal fees and expenses such as photo equipment, radio and other gear, software, a P4P drone for aerial videos, gas etc. And if I am lucky a few dollars are left over to pay for the countless hours I spend every month maintaining, updating and expanding this web site.
So, if you enjoy the Dreamland Resort web site and find it useful why not help us keep it online with a one time donation of any amount or with a monthly donation. Simply click the button below to support us today. PayPal will guide you through the process in a few simple steps. Most of our supporters donate $5-10.
We post the donations for the current month as percent of the goal on our start page. That value is updated manually, usually once a day. So it does not instantly reflect a new donation. Donations above the monthly goal count towards the next month.
Thank you for your support. With your help I hope to keep Dreamland Resort online and updated for another 20+ years.

Dreamland Resort Owner and Webmaster
