    Based on your description I have no doubt you were being targeted. That feeling that came over you was your sixth sense of self-preservation and we all have it: females more than men. As a patient at Walter Reed for extended periods, I was studied by some high-speed neurologists and I learned a few things as they discussed this topic. This combined with your SA also helped.

    You are alive.
    You are unhurt.
    You are not being flayed by the media nor persecuted by the county persecutor.
    Result of your SA?
    I think so.

    Question

    On the other hand, maybe the guy had recently been broken into himself and was wanting to check out others roaming around the area. It may not be what you initially thought. I have done basically what this guy did when there were thiefs/suspects in the area.

    The guy in the car was defiantly up to no good. If you had continued down the path you were on you probably would have been robbed or been in a gun fight.

    Thanks all - your replies are appreciated.

    I really believe the BG was looking for a crime of opportunity. I got the "tweaker" vibe from the way he was driving and acting.

    I think someone was tryin to jack me for my jelly doughnut once. But I ate it before he got to me.

    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

    Sounds like you were situationally aware, observant, got relevant information (tag, etc) and avoided .... but were prepared if it went bad. What more can you ask for ? Good job... you were prudent and wise.
