Flying J Break-ins

Not sure if this the best place to post this info.

I just saw a news segment on a Dallas TV station (8) reporting on the number of break-ins at one of the Flying J's in the Dallas area.

There have been 70 or 80 break-in's at this particular station of 18 wheelers this year primarily because they have items that are easily fenced. GPS, CB, xm radio. They didn't mention any RV's being broken into.

Just think what we have in our RV's that could easily be fenced.

What is in an RV that could be Fenced?..... How about Rover, the 150 pound Lab Retriver, or Jesus.. The Rot. (You know from the P-K9 security system.. Let me tell you about that system)

Burgler breaks into a home and starts loading silverware into his sack.. Suddenly he hears a voice: "Jesus is watching you"
He freezes.. then slowly and carefully looks around, seeing nothing he goes back to work, Again, and yet Again (this is the short version) he hears "Jesus is watching you" and this time he spots the parrot in his cage "So what you are just a stupid bird in your cage, You can't do anything to me, and anyway, What kind of idiot names his bird Jesus?" The bird replies... Oh, My name is not Jesus, My name is Moses.... Ok, Well than what kind of idiot names his bird Moses? says the burgler... "The same kind that names his Rottweiler Jesus" says the bird.

Growl says Jesus.

Actually.. RV's are more dangerous than that

Forget the DOG.. BEWARE THE OWNER (and his Smith and Wesson)

Thumbs down

As an old truck driver you will not find me in one of those places. The large majority of drivers are very hard working and if they had a choice would never stop at a truck stop. Some places are patroled and are relatively safe, BUT. You can not carry a gun into the resturant, and when you return you better hope the person that watched you leave is not still there, and that he has not found your gun.

You can't legally carry a gun. Better to be judged by 12 then carried by 6.

Thieves do not like the light; when parking a W.W. or a a flying J park next to a light.
25 years and never a problem.
