Sister site for Petrolia Scientology vault

The Church of Scientology's Petrolia vault.

The Church of Scientology's Petrolia vault.

The same Scientologists that built the underground vault and alien landing strip outside Petrolia are ramming through a similar project in a far-flung corner of Wyoming.

The Church of Spiritual Technology is reportedly running heavy equipment 24-7 with the help of night spotlights in a remote corner of the state.  Contractors are building a 22,000 sq. ft. vault — so far without permits.

The vault will store documents, according to contractors, and maybe some cryogenically sealed bodies.

A “3,500-square-foot caretaker house and an airstrip” are also in the works, according to the Associated Press.

The earth-moving is causing problems for near-by off-the-gridders who until construction began last year lived in peaceful surrounds.

Will L. Ron’s new digs end the strange lights over Petrolia?  Or perhaps air traffic between the two fancy nuclear bunkers will disrupt the gentle folk of the first district.

Sounds like a backwoods-to-backwoods alliance is in order, Petrolia joining forces with Scientology’s newest neighbors somewhere in the vast expanse of Stillwater County, Wyoming.

    It’s funny to me how un-secret these places are. If you go on Google Maps and put in “Scientology Vault” you go directly to the Petrolia site. You can also see other interesting things from a satellite view that would seem private, like “Bill Gates’ house”. More interesting to me, though, are views of Victoria Falls in Africa, and other significant natural sites.

    The first time I found the vault with Google Earth I used dead reckoning.

    I tried typing “Scientology vault” into GE but it didn’t take me to Petrolia. It did, however, pop up a photo of the strange double circles on the road to the vault.

    Mine showed me a marker of the entrance of the road to it, as well as the vault itself, which was far away from that. I did not see the crop circles. The property looks huge!

    What’s “dead reckoning”?

  5. February 16, 2009 at 11:09 am | #5

    There’s a screen shot of the circles at the first link above.

    Dead Reckoning (from Wikipedia): “Dead reckoning (DR) is the process of estimating one’s current position based upon a previously determined position, or fix, and advancing that position based upon known speed, elapsed time, and course.”

    You can find the circles by following the road away from the vault (going west).

    Why would you build an eon-worthy vault in a seismically overactive area?

    Each time I look at that image I think that a Smart Bomb is going to turn the vault into rubble.

    It’s obviously just a tactical diversion….. It’s a huge underground diesel grow. The arches are just surveillance devices to detect highway patrol following the diesel trail….you guys are snitches bring’in the heat on….

    Anonymous 1:29- so true- it is such a seismically busy place. Why leave valuables there for eternity?

    Indie asked: What’s “dead reckoning”?

    A. It’s a movie starring Humphrey Bogart.

    The vault stores L Ron Hubbard’s nonsense gibberish on Titanium tables for all eternity. I saw the rebar used for the vault- rebar that was 6 inches in diameter- I’ve never seen bigger rebar rods. The vault can be sealed air tight- crazy. Anyone ever hear of the Thetans and being clear? Sheer nonsense- but it has takers that spend their money on it. Go figure.

    Was the vault in Petrolia built with or without building permits?

  15. February 17, 2009 at 1:13 pm | #15

    According to the AP article linked above Humboldt County issued a permit in 1990.

    It was built with all the proper permitting and by top notch local contractors with union labor, by the way. The other main contractor was from New Mexico. When they poured the concrete for the vault they had every cement truck on the north coast doing the circuit to Petrolia 24 hours a day till the pour was done. The door of the vault was built by the same outfit that manufactured the blast proof doors to the Cheyenne mountain complex. They paved a road of several miles to get to the vault site and that doesn’t even include the construction of the other buildings on the ranch. Money was not their problem for sure. The vault did survive the 7.0 and 7.2 earthquakes of April 25, 1992 when about 30 buildings in the Petrolia area were destroyed, including the Petrolia Volunteer Fire Dept and the store.

    I think a study was done in the 80′s that indicated that Petrolia would have a higher survival probability after nuclear war than most other places.

    So that might be why they built it there.

    So… if they are moving L Ron’s frozen head to Wyoming, will they sell the vault? I want in on that action.

    I’d like to move off the grid, but I can’t get No-Vault insurance..

    I believe they bought the whole ranch which used to be the Walker Ranch for about 2.5 Mil. It’s an amazing piece of coastal property. I do have to wonder what the property is worth now considering the “improvements”. I don’t know how many acres it is but it’s big.

    I believe the Petrolia store burned-down like Hoby’s in Scotia.
