Blabbing on the internet about this BS doesnt make things any easier.

I worked at a Lowe's a few years ago and their LP is pathetic. It's one room with tiny screens and the LP girl was rarely even in there. She only used the cameras to look at video of things that had already been stolen.

If a customer set off the door alarms and didn't stop, you were supposed to just let them go.

They pretty much profile people, too, so dress in slacks and a shirt with a collar and a nice haircut and trimmed beard and they won't even notice you.

i want inside info, or outside info. what in your experience has been the easiest places to shoplift?
You don't need to shoplift because you could get caught and go to jail.
I get most of my stuff by using catalogs. They have 'buy now, pay later' catalogs.
They send the stuff out and you pay them a little each month.
These are catalogs like fingerhut, Aramark, ginnys, seventhavenue, stoneberry,
monroeandmain, Montgomery ward, healthy living unlimited, carol wright gifts,
dr leonards. there's a lot more of them.
They give credit to like anybody and you pay them like $20 each month.
Look for catalogs that give 'easy credit'.

i know that i don't need to- i pretty much currently never do- i dumpster dive a fuck ton and don't use much money at all currently. however, knowing policies and all that is very fascinating to me. i was hoping even ex-theft protection agents could give info or whatever. i am interested in the inter workings of all of this. plus, some could benefit from that info. for me it is mostly just a curiosity

I would highly suggests that you not part take in this activity unless it is out of pure desperation. I make no judgements on anyone's life style choice's unless it pertains to causing bodily harm to someone.

We all need to keep in mind that certain topics can cause red flags in reference to " Big Brother ". This is the reality that we live in. I suspect if I was starving I would partake in this type of activity however in this country this is not the case.

There are hundreds of creativity ways of obtaining free things while traveling the country. I think travelers in general are experts in this skill set. Long story short I am trying to say that I hope you re-think your choices in this matter.

You seem like a very intelligent young man and I would hate to hear that you got arrested for something so petty. Getting arrested, jailed, paying fines, probation fees and all the BS associated with the court system can be a nightmare, especially for travelers.

Either way, I wish you the best in your journeys and adventures. Stay safe brother.

REI i heard has a no chase policy and confirmed they didnt after packing a 85L pack with sleeping bag and 2 hammocks and couple small items and pick it up and stroll out...BUT you must be very yuppie looking for this to work smoothly and i would recommend a friend as distraction and to follow you out when you go out just in case someone tries to grab or follow you he just trips in front of them for you to get away then he runs easily with no pack lol

Rite Aid also has a no touch, no chase policy. They will walk up to you as your heading for the door and ask if you conceled something, but just say no and walk out. They will not ever do anything, I have a friend who will go in first and being that she has stolen so many items before they will instantly have 3 employees following her around which leaves no one to watch anyone else. We often use this tatic to peel them back weekly.

Holy shit, sure as fuck after 6+ hours of straight bike polo.
I am now on the road!! I spent money on the luxury of a nice ticket to Old Town San Diego, from there I will visit my godmother in East County and then hitchhike up the coast to the East Bay to visit friends and family. It’ll be in time for my 19th birthday!
The feeling of finally doing this is fucking amazing!

OK, so, my pack is a military duffle bag that is somewhat old, and I'm not sure it will hold up to traveling across the entire continent; so I'm open to suggestions on the best (?) replacement to buy....Thoughts?
