Hopefully the trommel was recovered - sucks dealing with crap like this.

Iíll keep an eye out, FWIW.

Also I realize this thread is pretty old but for others with valuable equipment stored in remote areas, it might be worth discreetly installing a GPS tracker on your machinery.

Iím a cyclist, and Iíve been looking at doing this for my bikes. Thereís a few different brands, and most are USB chargeable and last 3 months or so in passive tracking mode.

You can set them to ďswitch onĒ to realtime tracking when movement is detected. They ping your smartphone and then you can track the thieves on a map.

The one Iím looking at for my bikes is called Caveotrac. Bike Sherlock looks like a good option as well, but has a shorter batt life.

Anyway, might make sense for equipment worth $x,xxx+

Hope this helps

Chris

I will keep an eye out on the online used-stuff sites. What a strange thing to go missing!

What a good idea to post your picture!

I'll keep an eye open as I get to quite a few interesting places in BC, and if I see anything, I'll sure let you know.

Talk about a rotten thing for someone to do, and I'm so sad this has happened to you.

All the best,

Lanny

Gotta laugh at myself for that one, and I guess that's something I'll have to be more careful of in the future, but from reading your post above, it sounds like he's found a way of dealing with robbers and burglars.

All the best,

Lanny
