I looked out the window and saw three vehicles with blazing light bars facing me. I thought a group of off-roaders was looking for a camping spot. I opened the door and gave my best WTF look. A voice over a speaker said, “Show me your hands.” Um, okay. I also stepped out.
A law enforcement officer stepped from the side and asked, “How are you tonight?”
I thought, what is this? Rangers checking to see if I had my permit? I answered, “I’m fine.”
“We had several reports of someone yelling, swearing and threatening people.”
“Oh, that must be the guy in the blue van over there. I heard a bunch of yelling but I thought maybe it was a loud TV or something.”
“Did anyone come over here and bother you?”
He and the other officers converged on the blue van. I was curious what would happen, of course. Would mayhem ensue? Would there be an arrest? I grabbed my camera and watched.
So, things have been quiet and calm the past few hours. I’m glad things didn’t get ugly. However, if the blue van is still here tomorrow, I might move farther away.
UPDATE: They moved on shortly before lunch.
