    Beats me... I was usually looking at the student nurse in the seat next to me. I'd pick her up in Wilmington, near the old Chrysler plant, and take her back to Pottstown, where she was enrolled in the nursing school up on Charlotte street.

    A previous employer had a couple of trucks stolen while I was there.

    One was over the weekend. They broke into the shop and loaded everything they wanted into one and off to Topeka they went. I took about a week and a hotel manager called the number on the truck because it was parked in his lot. Wanted to know if he was missing one.

    I was the only one that could work for a couple of days. I was the only one that took a truck home.

    The next one was taken from a gas station that one of the guys was working at. Fixing something in a car wash with his engine running. The Hypo ran the theifs down on the turnpike.

    It was standard practice just to leave the keys in the vans.
    Beware of advice given by some guy on the Internet.

    I think we ought to re-name this thread. Pick from one of these:

    #1 - Why I don't live in a big city

    #2 - ONE of the few positive things about GPS

    Or...



    Hooray, its new tools time for me
    I fully support the military and the War on Terrorism.


    If you don't know, then don't do. If you don't know and still do, then be prepared to pay someone else a lot to undo what you did and then do it right.

    If you do know, then do. But do it right. Otherwise, you may not be doing it long.

    No, but strangely enough I DO spend a lot of time with an RN these days. I stay at her house when I am out in Harrisburg.

    Well, I can see that, but a lot of them WERE new. I had a turbo torch set still in the plastic clamshell pack, and the YJ micron gauge had been used less than 10 times.

    Maybe a better title would be "why I should have LoJac on our trucks..."

    I'm considering both an engine killer and a GPS transponder. This is the second night spent on enumerating items that were on the truck, and I haven''t even started with the pricing yet.

    This is a tremendous black hole for my spare time right now.
