The shooter of 2 construction workers at the elementary school in Kansas wound up at the home of the individual whose car he carjacked. Speculation is the car owner had his home loaded into the GPS in the vehicle. So the guy drove there, and had the keys to the house. So, make sure this doesn't happen to you or your family. Remove the home location from your GPS. Heck I suspect you know where it is without the GPS, don't you?
Walt,
Had I done everything right throughout my life, the World wouldn't have noticed.

My Honda offers an Option for me to require a PIN Entry in order to "Go Home."

Steal my car and you do not need the House Key... my garage door opener is built into the car.

Gerald, you know my house. The one on the road where the old oak tree used to be. You turn off the four track at the eighty acre cotton field, ford the creek and then turn onto the Church road. Then turn at the Oak that isn't there anymore. Or if your coming from the other side, turn where the junk dealer used to have the Huey perched in that tree by his house. Until the flat line winds put it in his house. Now the foundation is still there in the weeds if you look close.Big smile

Walt,
Funny directions, except that is the type we used to get when I started as a Trooper in the north woods of CT.  Make a right at Jones's farm, take the 5th drive on the left.  Of by the way they sold the farm.
Lots of fun finding people.  On my wife's PD she would get we need help, it's the yellow house. Do you have a light on.  No..   She worked mids.

Believe it or not, that Huey really existed. To this day it is still used to give directions to old folks, because they know where it was.
