Blind Items Revealed #4

April 30, 2019

Not even a mile from the famed music festival in the desert are two separate compounds. One is the famed home of a long time entertainer who was A+ list and continues to make tons of money even after death from the empire he established. One of the men he groomed is someone all of you know. There is a gap between the entertainer's estate and a subdivision that will never be zoned for construction. It is referred to in the compound as the gap. If this was Cold War East Berlin it would probably be called the death zone. This gap is the length of a football field and runs around the compound much the same way a moat would. High walls prevent anyone from just walking into the gap. For much of the year, it is just a place that, if you have enough money, people can rent out. It is very expensive to rent and no matter how much you pay, one of the homes is completely off limits. That home is the nerve center of the board of The Bohemian Grove who use the desert compound each Easter to work out the final details for their summer ritual. They also are known to try out various males and should things get a little rough or one of those males would like to run off during the night, the gap stops them cold. Nothing gets past the gap. The nerve center has lists of members and files on each and dirt on each. It has countless servers filled with all kinds of information about all kinds of people.

Now, one added little tidbit to this. I mentioned two compounds. There is a tunnel between the entertainer compound and also a compound consisting of three homes built by a shell company of the company that is a huge part of the music festival. The three homes and the entertainer compound are probably a good half mile apart, maybe a touch more, but there is a fully lit cement tunnel much like you would see underneath a football stadium that runs between the two locations. It can easily fit several golf carts or small cars in the passageway. Escape route for performers or a way for them to enjoy something more ominous courtesy of the Bohemian Grove board.

Yeah, no.

Take a look at the ominous "gap" on google maps.

There’s a huge gap, on 3 sides of the compound. Remaining side is a road.

I think the distances in the blind are a little off....I have the Festival at roughly 1.75 miles to where I believe the concert site and grandstand are. If that is accurate, then there is a good candidate for the second compound about 1.25 miles East of the Griffin Estate. From the North Side of the Griffin compound, follow Avenue 54 East to Arabia Street (halfway between Monroe and Jackson Streets, and turn Right onto Arabia--Immediately to the Left is what appears to be a tree-sheltered driveway to a security gate at its abrupt end (Not sure how old the Google Maps photo I am viewing is, but I see a faint impression of line in the sand that could be a prep for a front gate to the driveway, so that one or two vehicles enter the driveway, then get contained front and back until approved to enter). Viewing overhead once inside, the property appears as a Palm or Date Tree Ranch with high walls around the entire "ranch" covered by trees around the outside of the wall with a perimeter road inside between the walls and the trees. Following the perimeter road South from the Main Entry Gate leads to an outlying building (barn? Security Office? Station to/from The Tunnel?)that faces an East-West road through the middle of the property. The East-West road leads to a second driveway, and that second driveway goes to another walled area amongst the "farm trees". This interior walled area is a compound with 3 structures (the 3 Houses?) and a tent or shed at the rear Northwest corner. There are some fancy and interesting patterns in the landscaping, and the walls appear to have turrets at the corners and two (one on each side of) the gate. Could be innocuous architectural decorations, but my overall impression is that there is a hell of a lot of security for a tree ranch, and most of it is hidden and/or hidden in plain sight by foliage or "look at us, we are rich" architecture. I have an alternate site, but this one is my first bet because it looks professional both in the way the housing compound is secluded as well as what I view to be the security features described above.

My second guess would a "property" just West of Arabia Street from the first guess, depending on how one perceives the size of the "compound"--There is a lot off of Avenue 54 in the North-Central part of how I am perceiving it, in which the houses are well secluded from the main roadway, and if you use the Griffin Compound as an example, the farmland surrounding it also could be described as forming a moat. Additionally, the distance for the tunnel would be much shorter, and better fit the 'half-mile or a little over' described in the blind.

That said it does not contain anywhere near the security features of the first suspect property, nor the privacy.

The other location, though further from Griffin, appears to have much deeper pockets behind it, and would make a far more hidden playspace for whatever celebrities do when they are not on stage at Coachella....

Lastly, I got a closer look on Street View and the first property has a handful of warning signs (NO WEAPONS! NO RECORDING!). And there seems to be an address post: 54560 (Arabia Street).

So here's a thought.

I'm not sure why Griffin would build a tunnel when he bought the property in 1986. I just don't get the purpose of it if he constructed it. He owned 39 acres and could do what he wanted without prying eyes. Why would he want or need a tunnel to other parts of his property? Why would he need a tunnel to the neighboring property?

Merv Griffin died in 2007 but the property across Avenue 54, The Madison Club, opened in 2006. There shouldn't be any relation since the estate was sold AFTER his death. However, I decided to look at some historical satellite maps in Google Earth. There was no major construction on the Griffin property after he bought it. He continued to use the lots as they looked before his purchase. That was until 2006.

There was construction on the Griffin property in 2006, just one year after construction to create the Madison Club. It changed from the full property for equestrian use, to razing all the land for housing development and just the smaller lot for the main house and racing track.

There is a small service entrance for the Madison Club directly across Avenue 54 from the Griffin estate. It has an entrance from Avenue 54 and a small road out to the golf course grounds. Maybe it's for grounds maintenance? But it looks built into the hill of the course. It doesn't really seem good for anything but has a prime exit to Avenue 54. But it is directly across from one of the homes on the Griffin estate as well.

The main clubhouse for the golf course is about .5 miles from this entrance. The main clubhouse is approximately 1 mile from the Coachella site as well and some of the earliest properties for the club are there as well. Perhaps there is a service tunnel that was built into the golf course when it was constructed from this service entrance on Avenue 54 to the clubhouse. And then extended to the Griffin property after the fact? It would be a straight shot from the Coachella grounds to the clubhouse area via Clinton Street.

The distances don't quite make sense though. The Griffin estate is over 1.5 miles from Coachella, even as a straight line. And the same with the properties mentioned by BlindAsTheNextGuesser. Something on the Madison Club property is the only thing that squares with this. But again, the only reason I could think to have a tunnel from anywhere to anywhere is to do with maintenance for the gold club, not a private tunnel from the Griffin property to someplace secluded. The property at Arabia Street probably is the next best guess, but why the tunnel?

its obvious why there is a tunnel, to traffic children back and forth without being seen from above
