and a new hobby. We live on a dead end road and have a lot of strange traffic. When stopped they "confess" they are lost. We hear all kinds of excuses like didn't see the signs, or doesn't Joe, John, or Sally live here? Our no trespassing and private property signs seem to have no affect. The huge Dead End sign posted by the county is ignored.
In the past we have had trouble with thieves and trespassers. I believe this may be changing.
I'm not sure what Hubby calls his new game but he does enjoy it. In his tv room he has full view of approaching vehicles and of course our dog alarms go off . He watches nightly, obsessively, for someone to cross the cattle guard. He even naps during the day so he'll be ready for guard duty come dark.
First he tried a spotlight and that seemed to help some. When you are in strange territory and a bright light out of nowhere hits your vehicle it kinda makes you think twice.
His new toy is a lazer sight for a gun. He attached it to his varmint gun but hasn't used it for that yet, however, he has used the sight on trespassers. He laughs manically at their reactions. Just imagine this...you have driven down a dirt road for over a quarter, you're not sure where you are or if you do know, you are up to no good. A bright green dot suddenly appears on the driver of the vehicle. The only way someone would not know what this was would be to have totally lived with their head in the sand.
Some have been brave enough to continue, several have backed up and driven at break neck speeds in reverse to lose the "dot". Our traffic has slowed immensely. Word must be getting around!
And Hubby keeps on playing.
