    If you are going to ask, can you wait until I can get down there. I'd like to see the answer. HPW

    Well my trip is complete, I just got stopped by the US Border checkpoint outside of Blythe and was asked if I was a migrant farm worker

    Are you serious? I showed the agent my 20 dollar manicure and asked if these look like the hands of a migrant farm worker, guess he didn't like my attitude so they searched my car and ran my license, I am probably on some sort of watch list

    I knew I should have bought an RTF hat

    Why would you be stopped at a border checkpoint? Did you cross the border?

    Bon, you can work in my garden any time... I'll supply the gloves to protect your mani.

    I hate that area. Too many check points. Made the drive to & from LA County 1 time for work. I always flew out there prior & I picked up my wings again the next time I went.

    You do NOT have to cross the border to hit a border patrol check point. I think we hit half a dozen going & 3 or 4 coming back. Stupidest crap I've ever seen.

    .
    My guess is that like Texas they have check points miles from the border. My guess they are looking for drugs as much as illegals. I've been through a couple of checkpoints in Texas probably 25-50 miles from the border. Well manned, dogs, interview and holding rooms.

    We have a border checkpoint just outside of Yuma on the way to Phoenix and a couple on the way to San Diego. Usually they just wave you through. Did the dog hit on your truck?
