I think it's sort of funny you don't mention the truck's description.

Jason, good luck getting your things back.  It's unfortunate this ever has to happen.

On a somewhat related note -- I'm going to remove my couple outdoors related stickers from the back of the car.  No sense advertising my outdoorsiness to potential thieves.  Wouldn't take long for them to recognize which vehicles have the best potential for booty inside.  These fucking stickers are nothing more than a "come and get it" beacon. [this may not have anything to do with Jason's situation.  With recent reports of breakins I figure I'm not helping remain anonymous by basically advertising I'm not]

While we're at it, stop leaving gear in your vehicle overnight.

I think for people traveling and/or living out of their vans, it's not really any option.

 I've replaced my outdoorsy stickers with thief deterrent stickers.
All joking aside, sorry for you loss. What a bummer.

Well it's not just the gear that got stolen from the truck right? It was the truck itself.

correct, but the first comment was a guy finding it odd there was no truck description. no one here is going to be looking for stolen trucks, so it pretty much dosent really matter. people here would be scouring classifieds looking to buy climbing gear or seeing used gear for sale other places, hence posting the climbing gear that was stolen hoping someone would probably see this and make the connection.

So the fact that a fellow climber may have seen and even talked with the thieves doesn't matter? If it happened who knows, maybe someone saw the whole thing go down and knows what they were driving to get there... So many connections to make, so little info.

They got the truck back, but no gear. Keep an eye out!

I live in summerlin, have a habit of looking at other vehicles that are climber/mtb/outdoors related...and could've possibly spotted the truck , IF there was a description...so
