    Weird for sure but glad it turned out ok. The wire on the left side reminds me of the wires wrapped on the glass insulators on telephone poles circled in Red.

    With creepy people like that I am much more prone to just
    addressing the situation. I figure if I just walk off and leave
    then the same guy is going to creep out someone else, and
    maybe harm them.

    Had that situation a couple times, and in both cases after
    noticing the creepy person following me, I just set my
    detector down, took off my headphones and set them
    down (like I was taking a break), lit a cigarette and just
    looked right at them, and then addressed the person.

    "Howdy..I see you following me..is there something I can
    do for you?"

    This puts them on notice: Now they know.. that I know they're
    there, and am not afraid to be direct with them. This also gives me
    a distinct advantage of body position and my hands free should they
    become aggressive.

    In both cases all I got was: "No man..I was just curious about what
    you were doing/finding."

    Whatever their motives, they both went on their way and I went back to
    detecting.

    Both those cases were over 20 years ago, and in today's world (and
    at my age) I'd have to think a bit before I'd take such action today.
    In today's world, if the person appeared threatening to me, it would
    be "Hey Siri, call 911 on speakerphone".

    Then, without acting aggressive towards the person, I would
    prepare to defend myself should the need arise.

    Nice assortment of finds you had going for you, before you left.
    It kind of sucks and throws one's mojo off detecting when it happens.

    Back in the 70/80's seemed like I had the most occurrences while detecting parks.
    I got to using a big old hunting knife for digging in the soils/lawns for retrievals.
    It seemed when the thick 6in. blade started to be shown-the creepers soon departed.

    Only once back in the late 70's I was detecting with a family member in front of a city hall. There was like every town/city a cenotaph erected to honour the fallen.
    This guy that had too many kept going on about me digging up the dead, and politely we explained there were no graves.
    The result was he tried to kick me in the head while I was down digging a find, I saw it coming and he missed the melon.
    I struck out and hit him in the centre chest with the big screw driver.
    Well to my surprise he went down like a sack of rocks, flopping around on the edge of the sidewalk.
    Lots of folks witnessed this by now, police, emergency ambulance, and me sitting there explaining what happened.
    I guess my hit stopped his heart-but it was self defence as many said I was only defending myself from this idiot.

    So many have posted up the fears of the furry four legged creatures that roam around-but it's the brain dead two legged ones that one has to be aware of actually.
