We accepted part of the blame for leaving the cooler out, but I think the boys learned a good lesson. We don't leave coolers out anymore.
BTW, the boys became good friends to our 2 boys over the summer and are still friends and laugh about the incident.
You are probably right, and I do sometimes put the cooler in the back of the truck now if it is a busy weekend at the campground. But this was on a Wed night, and there were only a few people there, so I never dreamed anyone would be in it. My mistake I guess.

I think it is human nature to relax a little and/or forget that all people are not as honest as we would like to believe them to be. We leave more valuable things out than our cooler, but we've been very lucky of the last 50+ yrs of camping with the Pepsi incident being our only encounter and it turned out being good in the end as 4 friendships were made no doubt for life.

Five years and never an issue. Would not leave my wallet, keys, electronics, etc... out. Always lock the trailer and truck up when gone and at night. Otherwise, no one has ever messed with chairs, hitch equipment, stroller, even cheap toys left on the picnic table. Heck, better than my neighborhood (and we're a low-crime area.)
