( 4-15-14) I - 15 backed up for 7 miles and thousands of supporters stopped from reaching the ranch
"I rolled into Laughlin really early, like 5:30 am. So many people had shown up, that we decided to leave in groups. A second group to leave at 8Am as scheduled. Ours was a big group too. About two dozen cars, loaded with passengers.
The highway was almost empty until near Mesquite. Then it was a traffic jam. Motor homes, campers, ATVs running along side the freeway, motorcyles, vehicles, every thing you could possibly imagine. Everyone on their way to Bunkersville.
Then it about stopped, just inching along. Word traveled down the traffic line that the feds had blocked the road just out of Mesquite and were [withOUT Warrants]searching vehicles for weapons and cell phones. Cell phones were confiscated and smashed. The people were given a Schit for $30.00 redemption value. I left my phone at home. Some of us that had four wheel drives decided to just leave the road and head overland.
