Is it possible, just possible that this was a guy that had stopped to have a drink of coffee then wanting to relieve himself decided to go into the
bushes, he froze when he saw you because you were the last thing he had ever expected in the dark at night in some bushes or behind a hedge of
Could he be a surveyor of some kind.
As for a spook I would have expected him to turn his light's off if his car was parked, to use a dark colored or neutral colored car that was
actually non descript and blended in among other vehicles as the whole idea or surveillance is to be unseen so a car with all gizmo's on top unless as
you suggest it was electronic surveillance equipment just does not do it for me.
Think when you are stalking, you have a hide or if you are in the open and just hunkered down watching your prey you do not move, if you move you do
so very slowly and then you really only use your eye's as turning your head would alert an animal OR a human, you try not to stand out from the
natural flow of the terrain as anything out of place break's the illusion you are not there, spook's are trained to blend in, urban camo for them
would be normal casual cloths or business suits and like I say normal cars.
Of course amateur private eye's watching freds wife with telescopic equipment to catch her cheating which barney may not be that good at there job,
especially if they are not ex cop's or military so that is a possibility.
Now I know far less than you, I was not there and you have a feeling, if your gut say's something then maybe there is something to it but why a white
car with gizmo's?, if he was going to use your location as a hide he would have parked away from that location, walked to it OR been dropped off by
another vehicle - perhaps a mini van to shield him from view as he got out of sight before driving off if your hide is close to the road that is, he
would not do or equip himself in any way that could draw attention to him.
Police here in the UK, MI5 and many other's use old beaten up cars, let themselves look the part and even work in crap jobs as cover and there
surveillance can be up to a year or even two or more in some cases, the US is just as well trained and work's with our intelligence so they know all
the same trick's plus a few that there far bigger wallet's enable them to use.
My guess, the guy was odd, maybe he was something but just in case before you use that spot again check no one was squatting there using it as a
place of relief, pee dries but the other stuff can make your boot's really unpleasant.
