Those must be tough to store in an Airstream - big tripping hazard on the door mat

Dang Jimmini... I wear a 13 too! we could have really produced some big shoes last time we were camping. I love and remember what you told me about keeping the generator inside the trailer.... " I don't want to have to explain why there is a person shot in the back outside my trailer" (Jimmini 2009)

While we carry a handgun in the trailer (just not in Canada!), it's my weapon of last resort. Much more easily accessed is the good ol' CO2 fire extinguisher. Possibly more effective in an enclosed space and a lot friendlier to your eardrums. Cleanup afterwards is probably about the same and the legal repercussions should be a lot less.

"One particular crime category crimes against the parks themselves, ranging from vandalism to illegal tree cutting increased fourfold in the 10 years of data analyzed by The Sacramento Bee."

"I could easily see the stripping of our state parks," said Richard Bergstresser, president of the State Park Peace Officers Association and a ranger at Humboldt Redwoods State Park. "There will be an uptick in, for instance, marijuana plantations, vandalism, outright theft."

So. . . if you find yourself camped next to a marijuana field, someone may be committing a crime, but it probably doesn't represent a threat to you.

LOL, good point. But what if we've already chambered a round

Seriously though, just be observant, confident, prepared, and make smart decisions and you will likely be able to avoid most trouble. And lock your valuables up and out of sight if possible.

Then you may be part of the 'crime wave'

Quote:
While Congress voted earlier this year to allow visitors to carry loaded guns in national parks and wildlife refuges, California law prohibits firearms in state parks unless they are unloaded and locked.

I would love to get my hands on a Honda 2000 shell, put a concrete block inside and line the underside of the handle with razor blades or better yet... hotwire the cable to 50amp power.. I bet they would not attempt that again. ... unfortunately, my bud Jimmini informs me that booby trapping is illegal in AZ... i guess it will remain a fantasy.

That booby trapping sounds like a fun thing to do. Not just the geni, but for lots of other things. Have to put on the thinking cap

I really do not know, but it sure sounds like fun... for starters, the folks that steal stuff are not too bright anyway.. just imagine the things you could experiment with. The choices seem to be endless. Electricity, Blackwater, razor blades.. you get the picture.

It might have been Cabellas...I'll do some checking and get back with you.

Here is just red: Winchester Red Shotgun Shell Party Lights by awelldressedbullet

This one has shell colors for any occasion! TOO FUNNY I especially like the wedding set. Shotgun Shell Bar and Party Lights

I've actually ordered from these folks before: PartyLights.com | Real Shot Shell Party Lights

Couldn't find our exact one but you can get the idea!
