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

A lot of stuff went to the bottom of the ocean when we lost our sailboat on the shoals. There many little annoying things about losing most of my personal items. The latest hassle stems from losing my key ring.
In short, the key for my gun safe was on that ring. The good news is that I dropped a key off with my daughter before heading south. The bad news is that we haven't found that key either. So far I've tried three different keys that look like the one, but no joy.
There are serial numbers on the back of the safe that would allow me to order more keys. Unfortunately, the safe is lag bolted to 2X4s. It might be possible, using fiber optics or mirrors to view those numbers. Chances aren't that great of that working but it's worth a shot.
The best bet for now is to keep pawing through my daughter's collection of keys. My other options are picking or drilling out the lock. Drilling is a last resort as I'd really like to keep using the lock. A safe without a lock defeats the purpose of having a safe in the first place.
At least I've got a couple self defense weapons not in that safe. They are locked away in a secret hidden area in a different part of the house. Never put all your eggs in one basket.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
