    So, I was driving around my little town here looking for a place to park the truck and take pictures. (pics to follow in another post). I found this church with an empty parking lot, so I decided that it would be a good place. As I drove around the side, there was a nice place to take some pictures.

    I park my truck and take a bunch of pictures. As I'm leaving, I notice a Green Chevy Truck in the distance all of a sudden back up. I leave the parking lot and turn towards my house. This truck (after backing up and waiting) starts moving in the same direction, but on a different side street. I didn't think much of it. As I'm turning into my subdivision, I see the green truck heading towards me. In my rear view mirror, the green truck turns into the neighborhood! I drive down and pull into my driveway. The Chevy is moving pretty slowly. I open the garage door and walk in just as the chevy is driving by my house.

    He turns in the cul-de-sac (I'm on the corner) and turns around and proceeds to head out of the neighborhood. I take my dogs out to use the bathroom and as I go outside, I see the green truck about 4-5 houses down, w/his brake lights on. My dogs are pissing and the truck is driving very slowly and eventually gets to the end of the neighborhood. He slowly turns out of the neighborhood.

    Now, I'm basically waiting for the cops to come to my house to see what I was doing. I wasn't doing anything nefarious -- just taking pictures of my truck. And this creepy guy kept following me around in his truck!

    Now, hindsight is 20/20, but I figured a church wouldn't necessarily mind, being Godly and all. Plus, my wife goes to that church (not as a member, but as a guest).

    What do you guys think?

    I seriously doubt a church would mind. Especially if it's a nice, quaint little church, then they're probably used to it.

    :eek:

    I'm thinking he's probably a member there and was concerned... which would be pretty valid on his part. But -- don't stalk somebody... it was freaking me out.

    I think the coat part. lolol!
    In those cases you flip the "go-baby-go" switch and put your driving skills to the test to shake him before you get to your house.


    Or hop on the CB radio/cell phone and report his ass to the FBI.

    or, you just stop in a fire station or police station and tell them someone has been following you.

    Can't wait to see the pics.... If someone was following me, I definately would NOT head straight home. I'd find the police or fire station or just take the LONG way around and hope he loses interest before I get home. Or stop a police car and stop and chat with him. :D No, I'm not paranoid...

    Prolly should have done some of that... didn't realize he was following until I was just turning into my neighborhood. There's only 1 way in... lol

    Oh well, I guess we'll see...

    My guess is that he like your truck, and wouldnt mind having some of your parts. I'de keep a good eye out! I've had exsperience with this sort of thing.
    They drive around or chill some where, and look for a nice car or truck. Then follow it to see where it lives, So he can come back later and try to get his hands on some goods. But thats just what I figure he was doing.

    I would of walked out into the street and said why in the hell are you following me????

    However, the only trouble you could get into is for loitering and that is nothing. Plus the church would have to press charges against you just to get a CT warning. Your fine.
