      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

More gear theft

Recommended Posts

Don't really know where to put this, and I debated posting anything. But, this is a community and so I thought I would.

 

My girlfriend's car was broken into on Capitol Hill on Saturday and my entire rack (Camalots, tcus, aliens, nuts, biners, whole 9 yards really), harness, shoes, etc. were stolen. My g/f also had an Arc'teryx shell (tan/brown, sz: m) and a Feathered Friends Helios parka (blue, sz: m) stolen, among other assorted climbing clothes, etc. All my gear is marked with purple tape. I know it's a longshot, but should anyone be offered items such as these, I'd appreciate a note. I already checked in with Second Ascent and gave them a list.

 

Thanks,

 

Greg_W

GHA! This kind of shit makes me inarticulate. Hope something comes up, or that the GF's insurance will at least cover it. Fuckers.

I've been thinking about theft recently after someone disclosed a method of steal shit from REI to me. Basically, it comes down to one thing. Thieves are fucking pathetic.

 

Now I'm not talking about bs hollywood Thomas Crown shit, but real deal mofo's who take shit cause they dont have the skills to acquire it honestly.

 

The guys who steal shit from REI tell me it's cause they say damn the man...fucking pathetic. These guys are almost 30 years old and they're living a life of half cooked thoughts and harmful delusions of self-righteousness.

 

I'll leave it at that. Thieves are lower than dog shit.

 

I hope you and your girl get your stuff back.

Looks like yellow or maybe yellow and brown tape marking that rack.

 

Do these punks know what they are ripping off? Or are they just ripping off stuff they can get their hands on once they are in the car?

bummer, after watching "the punisher" 37 times after a rather over-done speed-frenzy, i was hoping for some real-life vigilante justice...mighta even taken a day off work just to drive up there to watch some poor pudfucker get his on behalf of all the pudfuckers in the world.

 

but alas...

Aren't you 6'7"? You should be our designated muscle if anyone ever catches a gear thief. Maybe we should get you a beeper?

That sucks Greg. Sorry to hear about it.

 

I think if I was you I'd take up thelawgoddess on her offer of letting you play with her rack. If nothing else it will take your mind off things.

I wonder how much less things would cost if there was zero theft. Hope you get your stuff back.

Rich

Having worked for a couple different retail establishments(years ago) it's my understanding that most inventory shrinkage comes from internal theft rather than shoplifting.

 

I expect that you'd have a very difficult time finding reliable figures to prove (or disprove) that, though, since for the most part you have to extrapolate from those what get caught.

 

Sorry for your loss, Greg, that sort of thing really pisses me off. I bet they get less for your stuff than the deductable. 2nd Bounce won't sell used harness or pro, so if it shows up anywhere I expect it'd be eBay.

Sorry to hear of your loss Greg. That is so suck. sorry about the girlfriends stuff too.

 

AT it may be that half is internal loss. Sucky people cost us all a lot. A few years back my son was starting to become aware of the cost of life. He asked me how come I charged so much for the work I do. We sat down with a pencil and found that 58% of my fees went straight out the door to bonds, liability coverage and insurance. He commented that it would be a lot better if we all just played fair.
