Weed eater.

I am considering using a weed eater at a couple of high traffic areas.

People might look twice at a guy with a camera or a clipboard walking around an old abandoned house. They wont think twice about a guy with a weed eater and an ice chest, obviously to carry camera equipment.

Exploring in the country is a different animal.


I have also considered putting together a homeless guy outfit. People usually look the other way from the dirty homeless guy. Plus I might get some money or free lunch!


I will happily buy your lunch if you will provide a photo of this weed-eating incognito ice chest disguise please. I need a visual on this one.




I wandered till the stars went dim.

Another thing I have considered, and present for opinions.

I usually look for good public parking a short distance from the locations, but it is not always available, or is further than I want to walk.

I have considered, but not used yet, the idea of jacking my car up and pulling a tire off with a note stating something about returning soon with tire.

I thought about this only after I saw a car parked in a parking lot where it did not belong on a jack, with tire removed. One of those situations that while not commonly seen, is not so out of the ordinary to raise suspicion?

Same process led me to think about the weed eater, after seeing someone weed eating at a couple of abandoned locations.

I had planned to use this at one location but when we got there, it was obvious we'd be okay without. I have done the waterjug/hood up thing a couple times. Worked fine even at a permit-only lot.

I like your weedeater idea. I have false company vehicle magnets for my doors too.

Deliberately disabling your car is bad strategy.
Never leave the hood up. Limit information.
Thieves like when you do that...

A bike can make miles seem like blocks...




Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

Battery or even something like the distributor cap or wire... don't make it easy.
Where I'm at that happen for sure especially with the hood up. It also makes it look like any perps that happen by are 'working' on the car.

Being stranded can be worse than being busted in the desert.

Not sure if it qualifies as being an impostor, but I've found that if I drag my dad along people are way less suspicious! He's just a friendly respectable-looking mid-50's guy who fortunately also really enjoys trespassing- it seems like if I'm on my own/with fellow 20-somethings cops consider us a trespassing band of delinquents, whereas if I'm with my dad they think we were just having some quality father-son time and got a bit lost.

Even better if you've got a nuclear family unit- we used to live near a big mansion under construction atop a hill in TX. Each weekend my family and I would go through a big gap in the fence and check out how the house was coming along and we got by fine- even came across the owners and builder once and had a wonderful conversation! The one time I went on my own, a man came out of the trees, said he was a foreman on the site and had a guy a few hundred feet back with a rifle (no idea if that was true but it scared the hell out of me) and started accusing me of making graffiti on the site! Absolutely crazy, definitely seems like appearances are everything.
