Below is one way to help Arizona and assist in securing the homeland.  The posts above and below are from my Arizona contacts. I have added a link to Gila Bend, Arizona weather in the link section to the right for those of you who might attend.  I regret that I will be unable to be present as I thankfully still have a job and have to work that weekend:-C1

"Adopt-A-Trail"  -  Arizona Interstate 8 Camping Trip – May 15, 2010

  ….. In the Spirit of the "Neighborhood Ranch Watch"

"Neighborhood Ranch Watch" was kicked off in April of 2000 as a call to citizen volunteers to help keep
the peace and protect private property from vandalism and unlawful trespass.
Today, the lines have been drawn in Arizona and it is up to citizens to once again step forward
and answer the call…. be a part of the "American Way Team".

Starting on May 15th, citizens will continue to do the job our Federal Government
won't do by "holding the line" on Interstate 8, 45 miles south of Phoenix, AZ for two weeks.
Standard Operating Procedure:  detect, observe and report.

Interstate 8 between Gila Bend and Casa Grande is a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area. The potential
for encountering armed, aggressive drug smugglers in the area is very high.  If you are not adept at taking care of yourself in a harsh desert environment, including the use of a firearm, then you should not come. 

We are getting kicked off on the 15th 


From:  AZ Concerned Citizens.


DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano and the other race baiting, ethnocentric anarchists want the sheeple of America to believe the border is under "operational control". Nothing could be further from the truth and a group of "Concerned Citizens" are ready to deploy, to video tape and educate Americans about the real threat to National Security and our public safety.

"Concerned Citizens" want a full blown showing of people who can come out and enjoy our federal lands. This will be people coming together to help AZ Governor Jan Brewer and the people of Arizona to bring attention to the need for National Guard on our southern border.

In support of Jan Brewer signing SB1070 let's help educate…….It’s time to bring back the" Minuteman Type Lines"

There are 30 miles of area in a straight line that we need to cover. Which make it perfect for a "Line"

What action?  I propose doing what we do best….. DETERRENCE BY PRESENCE
When: Kick off ASAP for 2-3 weeks
Where: Interstate 8, 45 miles south of downtown Phoenix
Details:  Multiple base camps at major choke points. 
           Comms: cell phones & FRS
           Supplies: Gila Bend or Casa Grande
           Participation: concerned citizens
           Organization: concerned citizens
           Responsible Party: yourself         
           Facilities: none (desert camping – BLM land- no permit required)
           Weather: Hi- 90, Lo-50
           SOP: detect, report & observe

"Concerned Citizens" continue to do the job the Federal Government won't do by securing the border south of Phoenix along Interstate 8. Let's show them how it COULD be done if Congress put Troops on the border.

How do we do that? Detect report & observe. Eyes and ears. Local law enforcement in the area "gets it". This area is extremely active.  No apprehensions, citizen’s arrests or high speed chases on I-8 (nothing wrong with "leaving the light on" for them at night).

The area south of Interstate 8 between Gila Bend (Junction 85 & I-8) and Casa Grande (Junction I-8 & I-10) is a major smuggling corridor…..drugs, IAs, weapons….. We’ve seen it all. This is approximately a 60 mile stretch, but not all that distance is active with smuggling.  The traffic comes up through the Tohono D' O'dham Reservation day and night.

The fact that load vehicles use I-8 to enter this area, pick up their loads and leave the area makes them vulnerable to detection.  Load areas on I-8 are typically one of the following:  dirt roads, major washes and/or mile markers. Mile markers are used a "waypoints" by the load vehicles, so this also makes them vulnerable to detection.

Bottom line, if we had enough dedicated individuals "camped out" on the entire known active load up points on I-8, we could effectively shut this area down.  A lot of recon has been completed in this area so we know this is doable…. just a matter of enough dedicated individuals.

This IS a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area and is potentially very dangerous so participating individuals who need to be prepared to defend themselves.

This is just one person's idea of something to do to make a difference and make a statement. Pass this around and see what interest there is in doing something like this

A Concerned Citizen

 This is what I sent out tonight to over 300 people who responded…….


To all MM,
If you got an invite to the I-8 opp you need to be clear on a few things.
1. This "IS NOT" a Simcox/MCDC,PBA,BPAUX or any of the many other groups event!! Those groups/people were only asked to use their contact lists to get the word out, PERIOD!!
Leave the politics at home…..
2. This I-8 corridor is very active and "VERY DANGEROUS", there is a very good chance you will see "ARMED DRUG LOADS"!!
    This opp "IS NOT" for 1st timers,we expect you to be ready and at the top of your game with all the necessary gear for
    this type of opp and for being self sufficient for desert camping!
3. With that said, the biggest thing we can do on this opp is to be seen by the public on I-8 so we will post on every mile
(that's were all the action is anyway) for a 30 mi. stretch. We will provide maps/intel/phone numbers on site as
    needed, there should be 2 vehicles & 4 people min. per mi. marker for safety.
    The Concerned Citizens that are working I-8 Thank You for supporting Arizona
 We will be getting kicked off on the 15th and run as long as we have people.
Location will be given after you confirm that you are still interested, I had over three hundred e-mails sorry it took so long to back to you all.

And here is more info:-C1

Each illegal alien leaves an average of 8 pounds of trash at layover and pickup areas. Statistics from the Border Patrol Tucson Sector report approximately 500,000 illegal aliens apprehensions in that sector for 2009.   Conservatively, the Border Patrol apprehends 1 in 5 illegal aliens so that means 2, 500,000 illegal aliens leaving 20 million pounds of trash every year in the Arizona Desert !

Keeping our public lands clean is everyone's responsibility.  If you decide to come out to Interstate 8 next week, you might consider bringing a couple of 30 gallon trash bags with you to collect any debris left in the desert by illegal aliens/ smugglers near your campsite. If you can't pack it out with you,  debris collected by Adopt-a-Highway organizations is typically left in the right-of-way between the fence and the Interstate 8 roadway for later pickup by highway maintenance crews. 

CAUTION:  A long list of items, including abandoned vehicles, can be attributed to illegal aliens/ drug smugglers that traverse the desert.  Items such as used needles, drug paraphernalia, plastic grocery bags, paper products, empty water containers, blankets, backpaks, clothing, used disposable diapers, sanitary napkins, etc are among things you might run across.  The heaps of litter long forgotten by those forging ahead come at a great cost to those who must bear the responsibility of cleaning it up.  If you decide to help clean up our desert, be sure to use precautions such a wearing gloves, dusk masks, etc, and treat all debris you may find as Hazardous Waste. Be absolutely sure to wash your hands after picking up any such debris.

Thanks !
