    About 1hr ago I came home from buying that Guerrilla Maketing book that some of you guys advised on! As I go to pull into my drive way, at the begining there is this big guy standing there (look out for the other 2). My drive is 400' long , so I picked up on what was happening when the guy bolts when he see's me pull in. I rush down my drive into the woods and these other 2 guys in a 99 4x4 explorer xlt jump in and try to go around me, put I blocked them. I call the cops and the two guys screw leaving the explorere behind (Wip out my for sale sign!) They confront me as I'm on the phone with the cops then high tail it off into the woods. 4 cruisers show up, say they know of the guys. End up towing the explorer. Detective tells me that they where here to hit my house or trucks. Thank god I surprised them, if they probrbly would have hurt my dogs in the break in.

    Good call blocking them in------------- "til they shoot you in the head over some stupid equipment. I can't say what I would have done in your situation, but it's good that nothing happened to you. In todays society of scumbags, I think I'd let the law do what they can. It isn't worth having something happen to you over this, that's what you carry insurance for.

    Bad call blocking them in.. too many times things can go bad. ID the vehicle , occupants, and let them go. The cops already knew how it was. Glad it all worked out for the good!

    Maybe.......but a quick spray of hairspray to your dogs mouth and they are quiet and dead. Here's my solution :D
