Had a very fun camping trip. The first few days were hotter than I wanted at about 100 degrees but the last two were in the 80's and with a mild wind. Had an adventure the first night. We are all sitting around a campfire when we see and hear a helicopter flying low with it's spotlight on searching the dunes by our camp. This goes on for almost an hour and it's all around us. Then it comes closer, closer, closer and lands just far enough from us that we aren't dusted out. Wow. A Border Patrol Agent met us half way (of course we all jumped up and ran toward it - grin) and asked if we had seen or heard an airplane land in the dunes. That was a firm no from us all. He said that the military had a "blip" appear and then seem to land in our area and of course they first thought it was a drug drop since we are just across the border from Mexico. And of course this kind of stuff happens alot. They took off and we were all kind of alarmed all night but all was quiet. God Bless our Border Agents!
