Felt Like a Stalker!

LOL, today I was at the library with my kids and in the parking lot was a 13 ft Scamp w/awning being towed by a silver Toyota Rav4 with Massachusetts Plates and a spare tire cover that read "Naked Face Records.com. I've seen this combo before, once the other day on the road and once last year in the Barnes and Noble Parking lot. Now the plan was to drop the girls off for an hour so my oldest who volunteers at the library could help with the Christmas Crafts and my youngest could participate while I went to the store. Instead I decided to peruse the Library and see if I could pick out the owners. How long could it take right? I eliminated the folks with kids as I figure it had to be snowbirds given the time of year I've seen the trailer. There were 2 different women swapping their books for others at the $1.00 sale bin so I thought that was a possibility. No dice, they both left. Then there was a gentleman reading the paper and I heard another gentleman ask for the financials as he wanted to check his stocks as he hasnt had access lately. I thought for sure this was it! Nope, he left too after awhile. I watched the computers thinking maybe they were catching up with email, bills, this group etc but no luck. So, 2 hrs later the kids were done, I hadnt made it to the store for something for dinner, and I still didnt know who owned the trailer! I even sat in my minivan knitting (I'd parked beside the trailer so there was no way I'd miss the owners). When I went back in to get the girls nobody was in the library that had been there when we first arrived. The only thing I could think of was maybe the owners parked it there and had somebody pick them up. So the challenge continues. One day I will meet these folks, LOL.

So, what's the longest you've ever hung around "stalking" a trailer to meet the owner? LOL.

I wonder if the people were simply inside the trailer... does the library have wifi? If so they could be surfing from the comfort of their egg.

Can't say that I have ever 'stalked' a trailer owner.

OMG, I never thought about that!! I tried to peek in the windows but all the curtains were closed. The little window on the Driver's side was open a little as was the roof vent. I also noticed their door was not completely shut. Not enough to see in but enough I could tell it wasnt latched. Oh I hope they were not wondering why this woman kept looking at their trailer, LOL. Surely they would have come out and said something. Guess they could have been napping too!

Maybe somebody will post a new thread called "Have you ever been stalked in your trailer at the library?" and we'll have our answer.

Hi:melissab... Maybe they had found some "How to" manuals in the DIY section of the Library and were reading up on future repairs???

I prefer the direct approach. I just leave a note under a windshield wiper (parking ticket style) with my contact information and mention my common interest. If they want to talk with me, they'll call.

A true stalker would use the website to find out more about them. Forget I said that.

Well they sure were hiding somewhere then b/c I watched e'body leave and nobody who was still in the library when I left was there when I arrived. I even asked somebody if it was an employee/volunteer trailer, lol.

Just for fun I googled the website "Naked Faces Records" on the spare tire and the name "Lizzy Pitch" which was on a bumper sticker on the trailer and it's an Indie music group. Hmmmmmm, maybe I should have been looking for Hipsters, LOL! OMH, look at this video and tell me it's not a Scamp! It's 1:46 in! You dont suppose it's her Scamp????? I Bet it is! Well now I feel stupid, had I watched the entire video first I would have seen the Scamp and Toyota RAV4, LOL.

Nice rainbow they caught there, with eggy foreground.

Hey, maybe they saw you out there and were afraid you were another band groupie! Little did they know you were just a FG egg groupie.

Your tale made me laugh.......I have been guilty of trailer stalking and it felt just like that when I was doing it! Have met some nice people doing so, other times never caught up with the people. I too have gone into a store, etc wondering who owned the trailer in the parking lot. I once followed a lovely restored Trillium out of Port Townsend for miles, right into a park and got to see a beautiful trailer and meet some lovely folks.......as most Egg owners are!

I think all molded trailer owners should have personal biz cards. NOT with personal information, but contact info... maybe a throw away e-mail address.. but, at least some way for folks to make contact. I usually put my phone number on the BACK if I presenting it personally to people I wish to stay in contact with. Remember, you never know where a business card may end up.. so don't put your personal info on it! Here's a whole topic about it and my personal biz card How do you not become a stalker

I agree with Donna, cards are a nice thing to carry. Here's a look at the card I carry while traveling and hand out.

You can get a simple url for your blog that is easy to use and remember. Something like

thedonpod.com

or whatever you call your travel page. Much easier than all the extra dots and slashes. Forward that to your blog or travel page. Make it easy for your readers. Godaddy.com has them for around $11 annually.
