    Went past this restroom here https://www.google.com/maps/place/38...4d-105.2604129 a couple of days ago but we couldn't stop because of a crappy camper van and offleash dogs. On the way back the restroom was closed, never saw a sign like that before, I guess someone just got tired of playing Mommy. The other pic is Booger Red, just incase you didn't know there was a place in Colorado called Booger Red.

    Since moving to Colorado, I've thought it's odd how there's such restrooms outside of wilderness areas, aside from the popular touristy spots with less privacy. I use them since they're there when I pass them, however typically I'm not around restrooms for the entire day that I'm out so I end up relieving myself in the wilderness anyway.

    I don't use them either but my wife will if it's not too nasty. I've peed in some of the most beautiful places in Colorado. It's actually a pretty rest stop, they have a cool sign with random distances and there is a stream, my dog loved it. IDK why people have to ruin things.

    There have been some garage breakins in my alley lately so I'm using all of my Clubs. I'm not sure how / why I have 3.

    Maybe it's time to put in a simple engine disable switch? Something that cuts engine operation (crankshaft position or fuel pump circuit) or cuts the starter motor circuit.

    The clubs do give a nice "move along" visual before they even open the door.

    The neighbor was talking to a grocery store employee (King Soopers) where the comment was they have something like four car thefts (a week / a month??) out of their lot on a routine basis. Is Colorado tops in car theft ratings?

    Reminds me of this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H0OG990bgY

    Having 3 ought to be a very nice deterrent.

    How do people steal cars without keys? Even if they hotwire it, wouldn't they still have to deal with the locked steering? Do they just bust the ignition and steering lock totally? Neither of my cars have an alarm and I can't get full coverage on my Jimny 😨😬

    That's a funny video, but he put the club on the wrong side of the wheel. If you look at the middle club in my pic (I feel ridiculous saying that) it's on with the lock facing the dashboard just for that reason. It's easy to pop the whole lock assembly with a slide hammer too.

    `didn't watch it first post but I hit it when you commented. I thought - 15 minutes - oye, no. A quick 15 minutes. Good editing.

    Bottom line - two saturday night slap-happy drunk (high?!?!) college kids filming themselves as they nick a car. A good smile (good editing).

    "they" have smoking bays? What?

    I'd think they're sober - I haven't seen too many videos on this new channel, but Alex used to be on another more popular channel "Car Throttle" and he's always the chaotic one - messing around, throwing and hitting things and generally being a bit over-the-top for the entertainment. He does have a lot of experience in this sort of thing, hence the good editing.

    I don't find the smoking area surprising, It seems somewhat common around here at least especially on bigger workplace and college campuses where they're sometimes nicer gazebos. Where they filmed seems to be some business area with more buildings than just the shop, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's there to serve employees of those businesses.

    The middle one looks like the long side faces towards the passenger side of the car, the same as the one of the video (but opposite because theirs is RHD), or at least once they start actually attempting to drive - it cuts at about 2:33 and flips directions.

    I meant wrong side of the wheel front to back not side to side- in the video they drill out the lock on the club to defeat it, but if the lock is facing the dashboard you can't do that, or use a slide hammer to pull the lock. It's better to put the club on from the dashboard side of the wheel, not the seat side.

    I do want to put in a switch, actually have had it on my list for a while but haven't done it. I'm slow to start electrical projects, I'm red / green color blind and often screw up wiring. I might install a radio disable switch by mistake...

    Camels and a Yurt

    https://www.tentrr.com/explore/Color...er_of_people=2

    "Travel down a few miles of dirt roads and you will find our little oasis of 35 acres. The hard-sided yurt sits right next to the field where our camels and donkeys roam. Set apart from the main house, sitting in Trujillo Canyon, and surrounded by BLM/National Forrest, its the perfect spot for recharging. Our property is off the grid and allows you to disconnect for a little while and there is a nice creek to go and sit by. Each stay also includes a farm tour if you are interested. The night skies have little light pollution and are perfect for star gazing. We can't wait for you to come and stay with us!

    Site Guidelines
    We ask that you do not interact with the camels without one of the host being with you. When hiking please be aware that rattle snakes are in the area.
    We are starting a garden this year. If you are interested in some of the harvest let us know!"

    Dog's claws did a job on the center console lid of our Xterra so we bought a tire tread cover and I love it.
