    Happened to me once. Found it down the street, in the neighbors yard. Parking brake catch gave way, it nearly made a new entrance to this dude's basement.

    Hope it turns up, or doesn't. The insurance doesn't cover the whole loss, but likely works out better if the car isn't found. When it is, it's usually got some damage that won't be repaired unless it's out of your pocket. :kboom

    That was my first thought--but there was no sign of damage to the car across the street, and none of the towing places has it. Plus I was sleeping in the room next to the driveway, and never heard anything.

    I think we have decent repair coverage. And we'd get almost the whole value for a replacement, but the value's not much on a 1996 Saturn with 100,000 miles.

    It was purple, in case anybody sees one...

    That was my exact reaction when I realized the kid's bike was gone.

    Sorry to hear about your car and child's bike. Once had the American Flag stolen from outside my house when I was a kid. Dad chased the bastards down the street in his underwear.

    I'm up here visiting Long Island, the World Center of Teenage Vandalism. Can't tell you guys how many times my parents have had to chase kids down the block who were dragging my Mother's Christmas, Halloween or Easter displays behind them. We've never had anything as big as a car theft, but if you leave something of value visible in your backyard, chances are it will end up missing eventually. Hell, my neighbors left the sunroof on their car open, and the next morning opened the door to find that someone had perched up there and dropped a turd on the gearshift....bless their little hearts.

    Serious bummer about your car and the kid's bicycle, Pilot - anything turn up yet?

    I'm headed to Charleston SC with the GF to spend Thanksgiving with her folks - just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to the local inmates and your families. It's been great getting to know new people and riding new roads - thanks guys! Hope everyone doesn't eat too much, we need to leave room for another Belmont BBQ visit soon...

    Word, I need to take a vacation lunch to get over the mountain but I want to meet you guys at Belmont soon. Have a safe trip. Bet you're loving the $1.65 gas.

    any of the local inmates feel like meeting for a little Holiday BBQ this week? I'm thinking a Wednesday or Thursday lunch (or dinner, don't matter) I think Hardy's in - Flash? FoxedUP? Melton?

    Either Belmont of maybe Jinx's - I keep missing these Hburg rides, hope some of you guys can make it over this way for a little chow..

    I'm in.

    Thursday lunch 1pm should be good 61 and clear skies as opposed to Wednesday 55 and rainy. Both are doable but which day would you all prefer to ride? Also Belmont doesn't have much seating if it's not nice outside.

    Thursday at 1 works well for me. Look forward to meeting you all and finally eating at Belmont.
