Rody69(correct number?) lives somewhat close and said he would update us but I haven't seen him around since he posted the last pics a few weeks ago. I suspect that nothing exciting has changed since he posted those pics though.

I agree ...

The logistics notwithstanding, the foundation stage of the construction phase of any project is just as interesting as the subsequent stages IMO.

Agree, we wouldn't see much changes. Probably a few more machines and more holes maybe, but nothing more.

At the moment there's no really need for updates every week or so. Just too less visible progress.
It becomes interesting when pilling is finished and they're working to pour the raft foundation! From this point i want to see regular pics

How do you know how Area 51 looks like, or if it even exist?

From personal experience, I can assure you, that "area 51" or Groom lake does exist. I thought we Americans have known about this for decades but maybe the conspiracy theorists are still hard at work. It's pretty run down nowadays but it is still used from time to time
