I like that little reciever hitch 'safe' thingy. I have a key safe (magnetic) that I have used, but I quit using it for fear of someone finding it. I have read Surfer/Surfing/TWS cover to cover for years now and I just remembered reading a ton of stories about folks in Cali and other places haveing folks find their hide-a-keys and either breaking in....with a key....or stealing the whole jalopie!
Living in Port Aransas i really don't think it is a big issue, although there have been a handful of burglaries in my neighborhood since maybe September of last year....both vehicles and homes. Port a crack heads suck!!!!
