  • Lock your cabin?

    Our new recreational cabin is north of Willow on the road system. What's the advice on locking the cabin with a key under the mat, or hiding it well, or using a lock box, or leaving it unlocked?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    I would say if your cabin is on a road system, lock it. Nothing keeps a theif out and if they wanna get in, they will. If you have alot of traffic on your road, you may be OK. If you are in a remote area, most people leave the door unlocked for stranded bypassers to use to stay warm. Even a person that is freezing to death will break down a cabin door to stay warm and not die. Kind of a catch 22 question, but anyone will break in if they need to survive. Most vandals will hit the road side easy cabins. Put a sign on your door I guess...INSURED BY SMITH & WESSON..........lol
    I can do the impossible right away. Be patient, miracles take me a bit longer.

      My advice is if its on the road system lock it and keep the key with you, but a cabin off the road system should be unlocked. Heres a story about some folks that found my unlocked cabin when they really needed one.

        The off the road cabin is unlocked, but secured with a heavy board held in place with a piece of all-thread and a nut. It keeps the casual pass-by's (and bears) out but anybody that really needs in can easily spin the nut off with a leatherman or a pair of pliers from their snowmachine tool kit.

          From all of the stories found I would add a trail cam to the mix.
