Help me break into my truck

My 2002 Chevrolet Silverado got broken into about 3 or 4 months ago. The assailant(s) pushed the locks through the mechanism into the door on both sides (it's a two door). Since then I've gotten by with just the remote door opener, but both of them died on me on the same day (today). I'd like to open my truck the way the thieves did. [more inside]

Super bloom, super traffic

I'd like to try to go see the California desert wildflower "super bloom", but due to my work schedule, I can only go on the weekend. But the traffic is apparently so horrible that there are hours-long delays getting into and out of Borrego Springs! My question is: how can I optimize my schedule/route to avoid the traffic as much as possible? I've never been to Borrego Springs before. I'm coming from San Diego. [more inside]

Yet another "what car should I buy" question

I need to buy a car as part of a move to Medford, OR (I'm currently car free). I'd prefer a small, fuel-efficient used model, and I'm flexible on price up to about $15K, $7-10K is better. Thoughts about what price range offers the best value are welcome, and whether to buy in PDX or Medford (buying in Medford would entail renting a car while I shop)? [more inside]
