    Michaux A$$ Clowns

    I just wanted to let everyone know that it's not safe to park in the Big Flat parking area in Michaux. I was there this past Thursday afternoon as I was passing through going to a race in North Carolina. A buddy and myself parked right near the kiosk and went for a short ride and planned on continuing on to NC after the ride. Needless to say we couldn't. We got back to the car and the rear window had been busted out and some top notch D-Bags stole all of our gear. All of our camping gear, cycling gear, tools, regular clothes, laptops, work bags, and anything that was in the back was taken. It was so disheartening knowing that we had nothing to use if we continued on our trip. We turned around and started to drive home knowing there was no point.

    Luckily a friend nearby lent us everything we needed, including cycling clothes to race in so we could continue on. That made us feel better that there are some good people out there. Just be careful that there are some tools out there that have no respect for anything. This truly hit me hard as everything I owned for cycling was lost and it took me 7 years to gain all that stuff. It'll take me almost as long to build up what I had. For now I'm beggin friends for extra clothes and supplies to get me by.

    Most of what they stole will probably end up in a dumpster somewhere. So if you are in the area please keep a lookout for the red/white/blue kit of Team Bulldog. It's easy to spot and only 35 people in North Jersey are on the team so it should be obvious if this clothing pops up. Who knows maybe these idiots will hopefully get arrested...

    That definitely sucks, hardcore. I don't know if you did it, but please consider telling the PA State Police what happened. There have been a number of similar incidents (trailhead break-ins) in the south-central PA region and (I hope) that additional data points might lead to faster catching of bad guys. Someone else might be able to find links to threads on the other criminal activity.

    Good luck,
    Mark

    The police report was filed as soon as I saw the shattered window and had reception. That I definitely took care of. Anything that helps lead to bringing these guys into jail is a good thing.

    I'm excited to say that new details have surfaced. An older green/white pickup with a black cap was spotted next to my Kia the day of the break in(4/4). If anyone knows or see this vehicle, please get a plate so the PA state police can check it out. If anyone has any other information please contact the PA state police in Gettysburg.
