About three years ago I had a crazy fuck guy in a dark blue or black pick up take shots at me with a high powered rifle as I was riding a dirt road from the Burger King at four corners heading towards the 15. Didn't hang around to get details, but there are some strange fuckers out there.

He obviously was confronted by someone with a better shot than those that came after me. Really sucks!

My Dad and Uncle have done lots of off roading out there. It is not uncommon to run into meth cookers. They once came upon a road block with 2 guys holding ARs. They tried to chat, but the guys just kept repeating "the road is closed" so they got the hell out of there.
