There have been some bicycle thefts in the park we are staying in. I have locked up our two bicycles but have been thinking about a plan.

1. Leave both bicles unlocked in the open next to each other.

2. Take an extension cord and cut off the female end.

3. Attach one wire from the cord to each bike and plug the other end into the power post.:lightning:

4. Wait for the fireworks and catch a thief.

That should about do it. I hate thieves.

Ever since I got my Honda EU2000 stolen -- we bring everything inside. I keep the new generator Locked down and even bolted to the back bumper. It would take some doing to get it off. Enough so that if we were asleep, I'd wake up and the bad guy would learn what the business end of a 1911 looks like.

Yeah, you don't want to hear the ITYS from the DW. Secure it. And those Toyotas have their place in the tow world - In the bed of my F350D as a runabout!

We recently put a topper on the bed of our Toyota just for that reason. While we camp we can secure things inside the truck bed. We have only had a cooler stolen about 6 yrs ago at a California Beach campground. I had just cleaned it out and put it outside by our door to dry and it was gone within 5 min. Been across country 4 times and never had any other problems with theft.

Hey Joe, that brings up a good point, are you allowed to have "1911's" in a state park as long as you keep it in your TT? what about outside the TT with a permit?

I know folks that go camping are usually the most easy going down to earth folks, but though I'd ask if you think i should worry about my grill getting stolen?
And yes, I know crap could happen no matter where you are at...
I guess i am trying to avoid hearing those nice words from my wife: " I told you so..." :-)
There is an old saying which I believe says " An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure ". Think most of the advice about getting a bike lock might not be a bad idea. However, I really do not know how angry your wife gets. Good Luck

Here's an intersting story... Last year we were at a very nice (pretty expensive too at $60+ per night) local public campground. The couple next to us had a smaller little motorcycle. They left to go for a walk and when they returned, knocked on our door and asked if we saw anyone take off with it. We hadn't. We along with other neighbors helped them look and even went down by the riverbed to see if it was hidden there, but no luck. Never found out if it was pushed away, somehow driven away, or loaded up into a truck. They were out $700. What are the chances that something so "big" could be stolen un-noticed in a busy campground!? Sucks!
