Which one? I have a library of them documenting my initial encounter as well as much of the later MIB harassment. If I shared them they'd be written
off as hoaxes and I'd be just one of "those guys".
I'm not understanding why you think sharing your evidence will make things any worse than they already are as far as your credibility goes. That was
not meant as an insult or to be mean. What I mean is that by making unsubstantiated claims there will be a large percentage of individuals who will
not take them at face value. Sharing your evidence will actually help to establish some credibility with a portion of these individuals, and the end
result is that you have more people who believe you than previously. Or to put it another way, those who believe you without the evidence are not
going to stop believing your story if you share the evidence. And those who think you're a "nutter" will either change their minds when you share your
evidence, or they will continue to think you're crazy, therefore you have more support by releasing the evidence. There are other factors to take into
consideration if what you describe is truly occurring, and I am not going to pressure you to release your evidence, simply because on the off chance
you are telling the truth, releasing evidence cannot help you where it truly matters. Unless the evidence was so blatantly obvious, and depicted
numerous individuals engaging in this nefarious behavior, in which case you might have enough for this to be a big, national story.
The question I would like to ask you is why did you decide to share these experiences with ATS? It need not be complicated, but I'm just wondering if
you are trying to help people going through similar things, or if you're trying to convince others, if you just want someone to share your experiences
with, if you want feedback from people who have experienced similar things, etc...I will share something though, although I do not believe there is
anything nefarious going on at this point...I warn you that this is NOT a very exciting story at all, and that I am no good at telling stories anyway,
which makes it worse for the reader.
I live outside of all towns and cities, and am surrounded by woods and open pastures. There is a 2 lane road that runs about 100 yards in front of my
house, and then at about 110 or 120 yards there is a dirt road. There are a few houses in the general vicinity, but everyone has their own property so
houses are not close together. And then there are driveways leading to the houses that are out here, and we don't get people doing a lot of moving
around or anything. So off of the FM road runs my gravel driveway, for about 100 yards, give or take. Maybe not quite that far. The FM road is not
heavily trafficked, and the dirt road gets some cars going in and out, as there is a turn-off to another dirt road that goes back where people live a
few miles down that way. I'm not good at descriptions, lol.
Coming down our driveway is my house, while on the right of our gravel driveway is a relative's house, and then on the other side is another
relative's house. We have a regular compound going, lol. So starting a couple of months ago I noticed that there was an SUV parked over on the dirt
road, about 110 yards from my house. That is literally the only place one could watch my house, considering that thick woods surround the other three
sides, and these sides are a good ways from the houses, especially in the back. You couldn't see anything from those locations, and there is no
entrance or exit for vehicles. The SUV had dark windows in the back, and nobody was sitting in the front. I had to get my binoculars out, because I
was wondering what was going on.
I don't know when they left, but the vehicle was there for most of the day. Then I noticed a few days later there was a different vehicle in the exact
same spot, again with nobody in it that I could see. I didn't go up to it or anything, since it was so far away and off our property, but I was
wondering if there could people in the backseats or something. Many cars have darker tints in the back, so I didn't really think much of it. Until it
kept happening. There have been 4 different vehicles in that spot at various times throughout the last couple of months. And then one night about a
month ago, this vehicle comes up the driveway at about midnight or so on the weekend. It stopped between my uncle's house on my right, and my house, a
distance separated by 2 or 3 dozen yards or so. This foreign-looking guy gets out, and he is poking around. I called my uncle's house and told him
what was going on, since it was a bit closer to his house. Again this is highly unusual for out here where we live.
I was trying to keep an eye on the guy, but he was out of the light, but I saw that he would go to his van, and then come back out, and was fiddling
around, and just overall looking highly suspicious. So I imagine that my uncle went and got a handgun and hid it on his person, and then went out his
backdoor and talked to the guy. The guy left after that. Talking with my uncle after the fact, he said that the guy was concealing something in his
hand, but he couldn't tell what it was. He said the guy's english was not very good, and that he though he was Asian. The guy said he was going to
look at the stars, or something like that. Our driveway is a private road, not a public road by the way, and it ends a little further back. There is
only one way in and one way out. And it is clearly marked as private. So those are the things that were unusual over the last couple of months, and I
am starting to wonder what the heck is going on. My first thought was of course burglars or something, as their behavior might be just like what I
witnessed. But the numerous vehicles don't make any sense, and then the fact that a lone guy came up the house at midnight, especially on a weekend.
You know people will likely be home so late anyway. So that seems improbable to me. I never had to leave the house at any of the times that these
strange vehicles were around, so I don't know if they would have followed me or anything. But out of my relatives that also live on this property, I
would be the only one who would even remotely qualify for activities similar to what you described in your post. The only explanation that I can come
up with is that some of the people who live down the dirt road I mentioned are carpooling. So they would leave their vehicle there so whoever is
picking them up doesn't have to drive down that long dirt road, and then when they get dropped off they can get back in their car and go home. And the
guy coming up to the house might have just been a coincidence. That is the only thing that I can figure. I just thought of it given the subject matter
of this thread. But anyone who wished to follow or harass me would have a very difficult time of it considering where I live, the fact that I take
various routes on various days and don't do a lot of unnecessary running around, etc...They could not even come down my driveway without me knowing
about it. I have dogs as well. They're small though, and they don't bite. Come to think of it, I need to get better dogs. I have a cat that would
probably nonchalantly look at a burglar, yawn, and then go to sleep.
