A few days ago, as I was coming home from some activity or another, I noticed a couple people on foot on the dirt road that leads to my house. Suddenly, as I approached, they veered off the road, and for the first time I noticed that the fence surrounding that particular piece of property had been cut. Closer examination showed a web of trails that disappeared into the underbrush.

After hearing similar stories from people who live nearby, the neighbor’s son and I decided to investigate. Our initial concern was that there might be a community of squatters developing back in the brush where nobody could see them. This is a common occurrence here.
