Unfortunately this is a fact of life for those of us that venture into the great open spaces of this country. I have done it on occasion, luckily they were small and only a few plants but still enough to make you think twice. I usually carry a pistol with me, but on second thought, I may start carrying something more...
I am glad you made it out safe and that it got shut down! good on ya for trusting your gut!

I'd do whatever it took to get the heck out of Dodge. Two shotguns beats a handgun any day of the week.

Happened near here, near where I deer hunt. I was just there scouting a week ago, and it's on my mind, no doubt. They're finding them planted in between corn rows, etc. They're very creative...in a very stupid way I would add.

I don't want to alarm you but since you saw their white truck several times you can assume they saw your vehicle. What happens of they put two and two together and decide that your vehicle was somehow involved in them getting busted?
What Retsupt said about listening to your guts and getting out of their at the first hint of trouble.
Also, as you make a habit of going to very remote places, bring a rifle (hunting and other laws permitting, of course.)
The only thing that surprises me is that they had shotguns and not AKs.
Back in the early 90s, a unit I was in supported JTF-6 operations in the "Emerald Triangle" of the Pacific Northwest. We conducted patrols and recon/surveillance into some of the big pot fields out there, and came across not only armed "farmers," but booby traps as well...
If you see something that doesn't seem right, go ahead and exercise that "discretion" that is the better part of valor - head somewhere else for your campsite, and report it to the police.
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
Thanks for all the replies! Love the pic of chill firemen. Jokes aside though, as a follow up: The bust in Pinto was also in conjunction with another bust just south of Cedar City....estimated street value of destroyed crop...a cool $100 Million. Thats enough lost cheddar to raise some pulses in the managerial side of the operations I would think.
Yup, used to carry my AK in the truck on a regular basis out in the desert and mountains but no longer do so mainly because I began to cringe at the thought of explaining the reasons for having one in the event I ever was pulled over by LEO. Perhaps I now have a good reason to carry the AK in the truck. A side note to that though, most Leos I've seen out here carry 'assault rifles' in their vehicles....even Park Rangers in the National Parks. Hmmmm...
Due to our recent loss in the United States (see attached memorandum) the following changes have been implimented as a temporary cost saving measure:
On the first Tuesday of every month, for the next 2 months, all cartel employees are responsible for their own coffee at the morning status conference.
Danish & whores will still be provided for those in attendance; however, the danish will be the smaller 8 inch ones instead of the larger 9 inch ones everyone is accustomed to, and the women will be local hotties rather than the high class, educated western european women who are the usual attendees.
We appreciate your consideration in this matter.
Coffee service, the usual danish and the whores we are accustomed to will return to status conferences in November 2010.

If something seems too good to be true, it is. If something doesn't feel "right," it isn't. Your intuition paid off in spades. Good day for you!
Strange going-ons were happening at the house across the street from me. The wife says something ain't tight. Yep, grow house. Big raid. The owner split town and hasn't been seen since.
