Actually, I have a better photo from that day, but it shows their faces too clearly. That photo did help me identify some of their gear. They use MRK
EDACS trunk radios in the 400MHz federal band and it looks like they have a GPS on the dash. That particular day they tried to drive past me to sit on
their side of the border. However the road was washed out, so they had to back up and go past me.
It is best not to make enemies with the dudes. Often you are out there in situations where there are two of them, one of you, and no witnesses, if you
know what I mean.
Bald Mountain is particular annoying for the dudes. They either have to take a rough dirt road all the way from the shack, or take Groom or Mailbox to
the ET Highway, then drive up Bald Mountain Road. The response time is quite long, but there is so little you could actually do at Bald Mountain that
the threat is very low. The worse case scenario would be you enter the range on foot at that location and they can't find you until the chopper comes
out. There is a guy in the chopper that is armed, so this could get ugly if you do something stupid. Of course, crossing the border is already
At one time they used to send the chopper every time someone tripped the road sensors. It was great. I knew exactly where it would appear, which is
how I got that video. But they stopped sending the chopper.
I've never done it, but you could camp near Bald Mountain. There is a spot along the road that leads to Sabio Creek, the northern most of the 3 main
routes. The dudes would have to set up a camera to watch you or camp out with you. I camped out near the back gate once and they parked a camera on
me. As soon as I woke up in the morning, they showed up.
