We live down a dirt road. Folks seem to think they can drive down and park on the back part of our property to go hike in the woods, fuck, do drugs, leave shit, burn shit, etc.

So my wife and a neighbor put up a sign. I figured it would last a bit longer than 2 weeks, but expected something to happen to it (frankly I expected them to use a ladder and un-bolt it).

Before:


Some time this evening between 7:30 and 8:30pm someone snapped it off and stole it. Its about 50 yards from the house and we didn't hear a thing. It looks like they drove through the blackberry bushes right behind it, which seems damn weird. I'll take another picture of the stump tomorrow.

Wife is pissed. I'm irritated, but I expected it given the reception it got from some of the neighbors.

They didn't get the base. about 2.5' into concrete.

Phone your local redi mix (concrete) company and price a concrete block (precast) they weigh approx 4500 lb.

Lets see them steal that with out a hernia

That 4X4 post has to be worth a few bucks.

Yeah, signs were custom as well. I think we had just under $200 into it.

New sign:

"Tresspasser and Thieves will be shot,
Survivors will be shot again"

Link Posted: 9/4/2010 7:33:40 AM EDT
and attach it to an ecology block, or let them run over a new post

Well casing filled with concrete. One on each side of road. Cable or chain string between posts.

It was likely a neighbor who feels entitled.

A game camera will give you enough evidence to confront them when you recognize their car next time. Be polite. File a small claims suit and get a RO after they threaten you when you do confront them.

sorry liberty, didn't know it was your sign. I took it last night after a day of hiking while I was out there fucking and doing dope in front of the fire of all the shit that I left last time. I figured I needed it for my place to keep assholes like me outta there. I'll let you know how long it lasts out at the cabin....

Actually, with the way the economy is, I know my place of employment as well as the yard we dispose of all our retained concrete is overrun with eco-blocks...I could almost guarantee that if you wanted to haul 'em out, they''d probably give 'em to you...be warned, though, as stated above, they weigh anywhere from 3-04 thousand pounds each...couple 10 or 20 of 'em would make a fairly nice bunker

Stretch some electric wires between those poles, and put some decent rubberized gloves in asl your rigs. First jerk comes by to remove the wires to go by, I bet he screams just like a little girl.

So you're advocating tasing, right?

Electric fence is different. The bastard can just let go.

I've always liked "If you can read this sign, You are now within range of my rifle"
Link Posted: 9/4/2010 9:32:22 PM EDT
Paint "No Trespassing" on an eco block.

Better yet, after painting no tresspassing on said eco block. Use a 4x4 to prop one end of the block up about 2 ft off the ground.
If they try to steal the 4x4 again, you might catch (trap) one of them.
Link Posted: 9/5/2010 8:55:12 AM EDT
Terrible, cruel, and, no doubt illegal.









I like it.

Don't forget to leave some rebar hanging out of the bottom for added effect.

+1. Something along the lines of "Private Shooting Area. No Trespassing. This sign marks end of safety zone. You may get shot beyond it."

That always tempted me to leave a note saying "If I'm in range, so are you."

This. I would replace the sign and put up a game cam.

Then put up a sign that says "Pee here"

Who cares? Trespassers are trespassers.

New sign should read-

"DANGER- Impact area, highly unstable, unexploded ordnance above and below the surface"

Then underneath it.....

"Our safety record: __6__ days since the last injury".

Link Posted: 9/6/2010 10:37:59 PM EDT
Make sure you periodically update the sign by letting off some big firecracker on a regular basis. Maybe some EMT drivers off-clock could help make it realistic

It would be interesting to set a booby trap of some kind, but I suppose the camera is the more practical choice.

AND it has the added bonus of NOT landing your ass in JAIL.

IBSRTCoC#4.) Posting comments or links in support of illegal activities including, but not limited to, threats against the life of any person, doing harm to a state or federal official, or advocating the overthrow of the government.



What WOULD be pretty funny is a well camo'd bank of 300 flash bulbs and a camera rigged to a simple tripwire. Bright enough to blind you in full sunlight, and the resulting Youtube footage of some moron stumbling around after the flash.

Bury a large boat anchor and mount the sign to that.
They drive over, it pivots up into their engine block...ask me how I know.
