My Mom and Dad were on their way to Mexico last week to fill some prescriptions. We all live in Kingman. On the way dad saw a wide, well graded road,
with a community in the distance that he hadn't noticed before. The desert is deceiving and things are usually further than you think. They were
pulling a small travel trailer and weren't able to turn around when he changed his mind. After awhile a truck showed up and followed. further up the
road they were stopped by a truck across the road with the hood up. Dad said the man, that had asked what he was doing, was in military camo with U.S.
Army insignia. My father is retired Division chief of the Las Vegas fire Dept. and also Retired deputy sheriff of the Yakima wash.sheriff dept. So the
man was willing th talk a little bit. Dad said that 6 plain clothes came out to 2 tanks "water tanks I think".
Dad teased the guy ... "that's your backup huh? the man laughed and said "yep your right". Dad asked what they had going on up further. He said
"you wouldn't believe what they've got up there." Dad asked "like what" the man said "stuff" and grinned. Dad noticed a wider area past the
pick-up and asked if he could turn around there. The guy said "that's what it's there for and no one gets past that." The guy moved the
truck...dad turned around and the truck that followed him up turned and followed him about half way back out. SO..... My question is... anyone know
which ( unknown)base this is? It's either between Havasu And Parker , Az or after Parker. So that puts it on the East side of the Colorado River.
I'll press him more later. As of last week end he doesn't say I'm full of "it" anymore.. He's now a believer of some of what I've run into out
here. If you've got info let me know. Then I'll go check it out. I've learned that here in Arizona and Nevada, (where I grew up), you never jump
into these places without a little heads-up. From 1st hand experience... Really nasty bummer!!! So if you know something let me now.
