The freezer in the background has a few kegs in it maturing.
What inspires more courage down the trails, better/bled brakes or beer?Nah, not staged, it gets messy when I'm working on stuff then I clean it off ready for the next job. This is now, working on a brake caliper so have parts everywhere. If you don't keep organised when working on stuff you lose parts or get them mixed up.
My yard on the other hand is an embarrassment!

All righty then...I'm in! Moved the last of my shit from storage yesterday. Naturally I hadn't remembered the layout correctly and things are tighter than I thought. The mega lounge is gone, it was as long as the garage is wide! I've got shit everywhere except for on the shelves and piled up. It's all going to fit nicely though. I'm working on 2 different floor plans, one with the bikes up right inspired by @scblack and the other using my current set up across the front of the garage. I'm not too sure I like all the bikes at the front like that every time I open the door...but I can't imagine the rest of the retirement village stealing them.
I shall report back in 3 years when I've organised the shed.

Large dogs leave large turds...that's too much work. Last.dog had the savage as fuck thing well covered. Hopefully the next one is all cuddles!Or a very large dog called Fang that isn't very welcoming to unescorted night time visitors.

Hmmmm...I think that kind of stuff just breeds more paranoia. Then if something does happen what good is it? By the time you or the cops get there the their will be long gone. Unless they pass out in the bathroom with your toothbrush collection jammed up their arse. It also takes a special kind of person to detain a thief without getting fucked up in the process so it's easier to reduce inclination by locking up and not advertising your gear, and of course having good insurance.279 bucks for peace of mind.
When is the poodle getting a poodle?
Humping the everything! The big ones are pretty good for security, being large and black. From memory the nrma had published something about the impact owning a dog has on reducing the likelihood of a break in. Any dog was a good start, with +big and +black adding a lot of extra points.Aren't poodles known for humping your legs uncontrollably more than being good at security?

And sadly if the gear ever actually gets put to use you'll be too far away to do anything about it.I'd like one with cams that I can view via the phone. Cam inside the garage, one inside the lounge room so you can see the kitchen and halway and a couple around the outside of the house. All recording to two separate locations with honeypot signals to......etc. So easy to go down the rabbit hole for me with this stuff.
I'm sure it is different for each state and even region, but even then I've not found the police to be terribly efficient at solving this kind of crime. This isn't to say "damn lazy cops" as the process is convoluted and difficult, with the risk of it all falling down in court on something minor. My workshop was broken into a few years ago (when I was running a youth centre) and a few bikes stolen. Within a few hours of discovering the incident I had all the names of the kids responsible, photos of a few of them with some of the stolen bikes, and I also had most of the bikes back. Every kid in town was lined up to dob them in and some knew where the bikes had been stashed. All before the cops even turned up to take a report. When they found out I had some of the bikes back they were all "case closed..." and it was only because I kept following it up that anything came of it.YEs but you record it so you can pass on to the fascists.
Have a look at the ring stuff..... You can even interact with the would be thieves and tell them to fuck offI'd like one with cams that I can view via the phone.

These are great, just installed a couple of the Ring Floodlight Cams over the weekend (Bunnings had them priced incorrectly on their website).
Can't ever underestimate having good lighting in the mancave!Enjoying an awesome home brew ale under lights!
A good mate who happens to be a sparky has kindly wired up two led baton lights, 3 double outlets and a circuit ready for an outside light. All wires fully encased in conduit and neatly done with these outlet purpose made to fit into the wall girts.
The batons are bright in their middle output, setting high beam would be brutal!
