So, we had a mysterious stranger today.

A while ago, we had a neighbor warn us that they saw someone poking around our house while we were gone. Which scared us, so we got security cameras, and set them up, out of the weather, and mostly, out of view.

And today, we had a mysterious stranger.

We were actually home, and saw him first on the camera feed in the computer room. We were watching Netflix when this happened. The security cameras are on an old monitor next to our computer. Jatina likes watching all the cars that go by...

Jatina went out to ask him what he was doing (walking around, looking at stuff, taking photos) and he said that he was there to re-evaluate the property for insurance, and that he had an appointment. Jatina asked if her dad had set it up, and he asked for a name. She said, "Challender" ... she admits, stupidly, and he said, "that's it!"

However, we had heard nothing, and asked him to leave.

We then called her dad, and he knew nothing about this at all. He thought it might be a scam. And we have reported it to the police.

But for fun and frolic, I share all my stills from the video feed now with YOU!




And here he is again, walking to the back of the house, pausing when he sees the camera for the first time, and turns right around.






Jatina's dad says he will call next week, and find out if the insurance company just decided to do this on their own initiative. We'll see. I hope so. Cuz, CREEPY.

And security cameras? Gotta love'm!

Okay, that is pretty scary! Maybe you should report it to the police so they have a record of it at least? And maybe they can identify the guy, if he's been doing the same thing to neighbors.

Da Police.
We did make a report. It was pretty basic, but at least it's on file. And I wanted to photos up, just in case someone local sees it and goes, "hey, that's ....".

But yeah. Scary.

Weird ... My parents have a small farm in very rural Kansas (I didn't grow up there, they bought it a few years ago) and have very occasionally dealt with weird people lurking around like that. Yeah, I'd recommend contacting the police and offering the security footage, maybe they know of him already or can piece something together on who he is.

Oooh, what a charming rustic area you live in :)

We did. And they took a report.

And yeah, this is Forks. Our house is in dire need of a good mowing, but it won't stop raining everyday. I got a bit done today, while the sun stayed out.
