Hate to beat the dead post, but I really wish I read this in August.......
Late Aug. I stopped at Maple East for a quick rest when a guy got out of his backed-up Caddy and walked about 15ft in the woods behind me. I ignorantly thought nothing of it (even though he was just standing there awkwardly) and within a minute he sat on the bench next to me trying to make conversation. After my short one-word replies gave him the notion that I was not interested, he cut to the chase. It took me a second, but I finally realized he wasn't staring, nor talking about my bike next to me. In shock, I finally spat out the word
NO, grabbed my stuff and rode to the corner across cemetery hill. Unfortunately I didn't think to take a pic of his lic plate, but I did take a second to memorize it. He gtfo'd pretty fast after he saw I memorized his plate.
I knew this stuff went on for years, but I didn't actually realize how bad it was until after this incident happened. Since then, I've paid more attention and noticed that Palos has got a lot of these creeps, especially Maple east. I have seen that guy again a month later.
If you'd like to take his pic... he drives a Gold Cadillac XLR Coupe. Forgot the plate # after I reported it to the FPPD.
