+Bill D (wwh) Posted June 5, 2005 Share Posted June 5, 2005 Last week my car was broken into whilst I was doing The Bridge to Nowhere. I'd parked in a fairly isolated spot, at the start of a bridleway where it leaves a quiet lane. One of the rear passenger windows was smashed, and a rear seat was pulled down so that they could grab what they could reach from the boot. It didn't seem to have occurred to them to press the central locking switch on the door and make access easy! Nothing was taken - there was nothing worth taking in the car. But of course I was left with a smashed window and a car full of broken glass. I've been parking in remote places since long before discovering caching, and though I'm aware of the risks I've never been unduly worried about leaving the car in such places, but I wonder how I'll feel next time I need to park in a lonely spot. I know that other cachers have had vehicles broken into. If this has happened to you, I'd be interested to hear about it, and about whether it changed your approach to parking in remote locations.
