Smugglers use "lay ups" to dump their trash and rest so they can survive the gruelling trek through the Arizona desert of some 90 miles from the border to Interstate-8 where they summon cartel drivers to pick up narcotic loads. This lay up is positioned just before the final leg, where smugglers lighten their loads of backpacks, water bottles, shoes and toilet paper. Smugglers typically use bleach bottles purchased in Mexico for drinking water canteens, because they're black and lessen the chance of detection.
