Perhaps this brief rant is more appropriate for Craig’s List, but I’ll digress anyway … some jackass stole my Garmin GPS the other night. But the bandit didn’t take the power cord or the windshield mount. Maybe the $70 they took out of the neighbors car will be used for accessories. Well, these items now don’t serve me at all and are just reminders that years of camping waypoints are now in the hands of some d-bag [or perhaps d-canoe] who certainly doesn’t appreciate them.
If you are going to be a thief, why don’t you at least do it well? This sort of half-assed nefarious demonstration really dilutes my perception of the common criminal. There was a $100 pair of sunglasses right next to the GPS. There were two bottles of prescription amphetamine in the glove box, there was a fist full of quarters in the ash tray, there was the Led Zeppelin How the West was Won CD set in a ziplock bag on the floor, there was even a well used copy of The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous right there for you.
Anyway – if any of you tech-savvy people run across a Garmin NUVI 1100 without accessories posted on Craigslist or at a garage sale — please respond. I got the SN to officer friendly down at the PD so I should have my bases covered with the local pawn shops. So besides being disappointed in the dipshitness of the theft — I really would like to get those waypoints recovered — there is about three years of recreation archived on that.
