Thank you all, it is great to be back.


I wouldn't trade it for anything, spent time with some great and dedicated individuals and play with some new toys in the desert. I got pretty good at operating hobby drones and even got to take the controls on a $10,000+ agriculture drone for a few hours

It is something else to be back home again, green fields, woods and ground that doesn't make your feet bleed
(where's the sand?)

Enjoying being able to focus on conspiracy/ET related topics again, diving back in just in time for this "raid area 51" nonsense. We didn't get much news in the desert, at least not this kind of news. ATS was on my mind daily however. You never know how much something or someone means until you are apart from it/them

Thank you Blaine, it means a lot

For what its worth, I think I had enough politics/political talks to last the rest of my life

I am retired so one of my hobbies is collecting various firearms over the years, in addition to tapping into money I had set aside for a bug out vehicle. I sold several older shotguns and a rifle that meant a lot to me, but what is Citizenship other than personal sacrifice for God, country and our fellow Americans


It is a shame because there is a real crisis on the border, the human smuggling is very real and are sexual assault victims, there are just some really bad folks out there preying on those they see as weak or in a vulnerable moment. I was not personally involved in this one, but several people with our group assisted a group of young ladies who were (according to border patrol) almost certainly on their way to a human smuggler/sex traffickers. Thanks to those guys, these ladies were safely escorted to the CBP

They said our people's presence could have spooked the coyote or the ladies could have wandered off course on their long journey, but either way the meeting between victims and smuggler/traffickers never happened. It was one of the highlights to be sure

Other than that, we primarily focused on gathering information for the border patrol and regularly turned over whatever we could get

I have zero doubt the problems at the border are extreme. I also have zero doubt you were doing it for the right reasons. My concern was not the why, but who that might attract. Nothing political in that. Nothing against you in any way.
