    Perhaps if there was a methadone clinic within two hundred yards or so of where you keep your tools, theft wouldn't be a problem.

    Here's a lady also in NC that took matters into her own hands with a thief. I guess now she's in trouble with the police. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/local/article158773739.html

    Yup, usually breaks right at the terminal eye that fits under the screw holding the front handle rubber mount. The one directly below the kill switch.

    Anything that required new batteries every month would probably not work well for me. Human nature is to wait until something stops working before changing the battery. Odds are with a battery powered GPS the battery is going to be dead if the unit ever gets stolen.

    Cost about $200. Little box that one hooks up to the electric system, then hides on the tracker. I can call it and it'll give me a precise GPS position if the chipper goes AWOL. Then it is vigilante time! The make those for all kind of vehicles today. You can even get one for your dog, so if Fido goes missing, you can find him again. Lots of big companies here have them on their trucks, so the can keep track of where the fleet is at any time. Couple of years back I subbed a day as climber for a big landscaping company. We really worked hard and were finished early. When I was packing up to go home, I noticed all the other guys were just hanging around. I asked if they weren't going home and was told they couldn't leave a job site till 3.30 PM. Company had GPS trackers in the trucks to make sure no-one snuck off early. Man, I couldn't work for a company like that. No way!

    I hate that, too. We have a saying: The shoemakers kids and the ferrier's horse always have the most wore out shoes. I hate doing what I do for a living at home, so I always procrastinate. Go figure.

    It is not something I do often anymore, Mick. Sometimes we'll get a hankering for some treetop fun and go camping. Having a fire and grilling a meal in a treetop is fun, especially with some beer. (make that: lots of beer) Then we can sit and re-tell all the old climbing stories and just generally chew the fat all night.

    Yes she is. Didn't choose her for that particular thing, but it sure makes things easier. I do most of the cooking, here. After raising 3 kids, she feels that she has cooked enough for a lifetime and a half. She'll occasionally hanker for some Swiss dish and cook it, that is just fine with me, I love Swiss food. Son in law and his wife flew in late today, so I had made a cream of cauliflower soup with goat cheese and grilled pumpernickel croutons. Makes for a good, late night meal.

    3 large dogs do it for me. Plenty enough security for here. I do have a GPS tracker on the chipper. When my lat one got stolen, the insurance company insisted on that. For a long time I hoped the same a-holes that made off with the first one, would steal this one, too. No suck luck!:cry:
