    I have had some tposts come up missing and just recently I cant find my wire cutters. For the longest time, I couldnt find my funnel for adding oil. It just showed back up yesterday. I figured out today that whoever is getting in the barn is doing so by popping the latch on the inside and pulling the door away from the building to slip inside. I tried it today and had no problem. So off to Home Depot tomorrow for another latch to put on that side to prevent entry that way.
    Even after putting wire on the windows, I found the deadbolt undone this morning. I know darn well I locked it last night.
    I got some new mounts for my game cameras and have two out there right now. One is pointing at the sliding door and the other to the regular door. I was able to put them up high where you need a ladder to get to them. Probably should get the ladder out of the barn and put in the back yard, huh?
    I also realized I forgot to put an sd card in one of them after turning it on so had to run out there real quick and put one in. Hope I didnt damage it. Guess I will find out.
    Yes, I have had things come up missing, moved, or messed with. Once I went out there and someone had stacked bales of hay in my horse's stall. I know she didn't do it. I pretty much have moved anything of value like my tools, tposts, stuff like that into my storage shed in the back yard. I have a security camera pointed right at it. Thinking about getting another Blink camera and put it in a tree beside the barn pointed at the front. Short of that Im moving into the barn with a double barrel welcome mat.

    I apologize if I have made anyone nervous about what going on around here. Cant get any help, cant catch the jerk, cops dont believe me. This wasnt my intention when I posted about a mysteriously moving egg. Like I said, I know darn well I locked both locks on the door the other day. Im a little OCD about stuff like that. I go nuts until I find something or remember where I put things. So I do notice when something is out of place, or moved. Or wasnt there and I dont even have that item and it shows up on my property somewhere.
    Dont worry, I will catch him. Or whoever it is. People mess up sooner or later.

    No need to apologize. It just sounds a little creepy and if there is someone out there messing with you, then you better believe that extra caution is needed!

    I do and take care. I keep my phone with me at all times and a flashlight if it dark that shines 1000 ft in the dark. All I can do is document everything.

    Praying you stay safe- it's a shame you've had to move/lock things away and put all those cameras up. But I know what you mean about knowing where everything is placed and how you left it. It helps you notice when things are out of whack....like the egg obviously!

    I saw that post. :gigThat would be cool if I could catch Bigfoot on camera. Instead, it will be a big fat creepy neighbor. :rantMaybe if I cover him in hair after accidently shooting what I thought was a predator, I can say, " but officer, I thought it was Bigfoot!" ( innocent look)....:idunno
