I know this is a long shot but last night (12/2/2018) between 0000-0900 hours someone pryed into my locked topper and stole my FL-12,  It's in the pro pack 2 style with the digital battery read out.  My truck was in the townhouse parking lot in Golden Valley.  I filed report with the police and have called several local pawn shops, posted a stolen ad on C-List and on a few FB sites.  If anyone sees one of these for sale anywhere please let me know.  It was one of the only outdoor pieces of equipment I didn't sell for graduate school tuition and unfortunately cannot fund purchasing another one.  With it being less than 375$ new the 500$ deductible on my insurance is not worth it.  So if you are out an about and see one matching this description let me know and I can call the police and reference my case number

It had been back there since Thanksgiving, I have a fiberglass topper and they pulled on the tailgate got it to pop a little then pryed between the tailgate and the box. Came out topper window still down and locked tailgate dropped and full of snow. There's some iffy apartments nearby and I got a better timeline from the plow guys, was between 0300-0500. From my experience in emergency services people awake at that time on a Saturday night are up to no good.

Police found it, someone stole it at 0400 and pawned it at 0900 within 10 miles.  Person didn't know what it was or what it was worth and the pawn shop payed them 65$.  Lesson learned, anything you own with a serial number should be documented somewhere.  Anything electronic that gets pawned gets put into a database and law enforcement can look it up.  I'm incredibly great full since I did not have the funds to replace it.    

 

Dang, I knew I should have gone to the Pawn store at 0910!  😅    Glad it all worked out.  🙂

      I was just thinking since resorts on red were letting people do it on 10 a couple weeks ago it would be good to go.

      Good for you! Seems like you got a fair deal. You will have a blast congrats on your new ride.

      One of my buddy’s cousins just hauled out his IC 8x17 this past weekend with an ATV. 10” of ice. Personally I wouldn’t yet because of how much money they are but I’m sure you’d be fine.

      Is 10 inches good to safely bring an 8x16 ice castle fish house out with an atv. 4300#  I am thinking it is, just want reassurance.

      Really, calling me out like that!   Nothing I would rather do than enjoy my kids passions with them.  A rental for two days costs very slightly less than a year of association hockey,  summer camp, and fall hockey.  Family time the whole way.   Little disappointed in the stereotype!

      If you have Wifi available I would go with a security camera.  We have four Nest cameras running at our place.  They can be configured to send you a push notification on your phone and/or an email when motion is detected.  You can also view the video feed from your phone, tablet or PC.  My exterior cameras have been up for three years and have worked flawlessly even in -20F temperatures.

      First time this year bought a Stealth cam and like it so far. Have used Bushnell with good luck, Brownings with mixed good and bad. Have a really bad Cuddyback. Had a Hawk Ghost cam which I ended up sending back. Ate batteries really fast. Of all I've used, Bushnell had the best pictures.

      Had a wild game and never again. Leaked oil all over the sd card. I have stealth cams and they seem to hold up. I have bought some cheap ones from Walmart that are tasco (25-35$) they do a pretty good job for the price. You will be paying 2-300 for the ones that send pics to your phone plus monthly subscriptions. Depending on the island and if you have WiFi wondering if you couldn’t do video motion  that would show on the phone like ring or some of the others. Just some stuff to think about.

      That's great.   Are you sure it is a Classic 550 Fan?   I thought the 2000 Sport Touring and Trail Touring were 550 fans and the 2000 Classic Touring was a 500 Liq cooled?  I had a 2000 Sport Touring 550 fan. But I may be wrong?  🤔
