+Team GPSaxophone Posted May 8, 2004 Share Posted May 8, 2004 We've all been there. The cache is only .15 miles away. it's just a short walk away from our vehicle. Then we realize, it's on the other side of the river/building/forest/etc. You end up being gone for 20 minutes instead of 5. More than enough time for a thief to abscond with the extra cache items you left in the car, or sometimes even the car itself. Be sure to lock your vehicle when you get out. You'd hate to come back to this: Then again, just locking your vehicle isn't always enough. If a would-be thief watches you hike away, he can guess at how long you'll be gone. It's a good idea to turn around and look at where you parked just before hiking over the hill, around the corner, etc. Alarms work great, you can usually hear them from a half-mile away. The flashing light on your dash is sometimes a deterrent enough. A would-be thief will move on to an easier target if he sees that your vehicles is protected. Be safe, get an anti-theft system: Quote Link to comment
