He said the guy was weird as hell and definitely a recluse, but no one really thought anything of it. You run into a lot of those types in areas like that. You generally don't live in the middle of nowhere because you're so sociable.
It's funny because I have plans to either move to the mountains and live a more reclusive life, or possibly move to the family cottage in central Ontario. At the moment though I'm more social than ever always hanging out with the neighbours!
