So far outside the box you can't even see the box from here.

I stopped in on my mechanic today to see if he had a chance to check out the van. It was going in the garage in a couple hours. He had planned on pulling it in on Monday, but the key was missing. He didn't remember the tow truck driver dropping the key off, but he and his office person looked everywhere for it. The tow truck guy could not remember what happened to it either.
As it turned out the tow truck guy set the key down on the flatbed and forgot about it. The key spent the whole day riding around, just sitting on the bed. Luckily it never fell off. That happens to be my only key for the van. I was just thinking that I needed to get some spares cut. My old keys are sitting somewhere on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico as they went down with the ship.
When I get the van back, my next stop will be at the hardware store to get spares made.
Normally I have spare keys hidden somewhere on my vehicles. Forget about those magnetic key hiders. Cars are half plastic now anyway. I'm not going to tell you exactly where I hide my keys, but I'll give you a hint. I hide them behind or inside a part of the car that you need tools to get to. You might need a screwdriver or maybe a good set of pliers. Usually I carry a multi-tool on me so with a little work the hidden key can be recovered. That's a lot more secure than a magnetic box under the fender.
