I've been reading the posts on security with interest. This is something =
I have thought deeply on for quite some time. :-> Here we are, a group of =
people all over the world, trying to preserve some of our history. =
Interestingly enough, the history of man's inhumanity to man. War can =
bring out the worst and the best in us. But back to my train of thought. =
You would not associate war with trust. That's one of the reasons we have =
wars, lack of trust for our neighbor. Isn't it ironic that the vehicles =
we love and adore force us to trust in the basic goodness of mankind. I =
mean, they are typically open vehicles with virtually no safeguards or =
security. In fact, it seems to me, more time and effort was spent trying =
to safeguard the vehicles from one's own countrymen than anyone else. I =
have done what I can to protect my jeep, and will implement more options =
as I find out more ways to protect it. And about all I can do is protect =
it from driving off, I have nothing to keep people from taking things out =
of it, so I keep nothing in it. Basically, I am forced to trust other =
people's goodness. Not an easy thing for me.
Sorry to those that feel this may be off topic. I would agree to say it =
is pushing it a bit, but it has always struck me a little odd and wondered =
if others had ever felt this way. I would be interested to know if I am =
not alone here. If you have any comments, please respond off list so I =
don't get in trouble. Thanks.
