Vekol Valley: Hiker/Sportsman’s Advisory. . . .

On one of my recent hikes, a.k.a. illegal alien patrols, I came across what I could only describe as a “post modern tweeker” looking compound approximately ¾ miles southwest of the Poverty Flat Tank in the Vekol Valley just inside the Maricopa County line west of Haley Hills.

Be advised that the area may contain booby traps. During a brief inspection, I discovered numerous railroad spikes welded to steel plates. These "pointed surprises" were buried in the dirt around the perimeter. It would be hard to say what else may be waiting for the unsuspecting hiker or hunter.

Normally, the desert is a reasonably safe place for outdoor enthusiasts, however, I would recommend that everybody be cautious. As I said in a previous blog, that friendly birdwatcher might be a dangerous criminal. I rarely take things at face value.

Remember, things don’t always appear to be what they appear to be. Watch your step out there.

During the year of 2005, there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border. As many as 19,500 illegal aliens from terrorist countries entered as well. Millions of pounds of drugs including cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana, crossed into the U. S over the southern border.
