I learn so much from these posts. Now I will go buy some extra stuff to keep in storage.

I am good at forgetting where I put things, like my phone. I do find them later, like between two bowls when I was doing the dishes. Yup that phone never worked again.

After feverishly looking everywhere for my sunglasses, I asked DW if she had seen them. She said "Yes, there on top of your head."

Thief

We have camped for many years. Packing up to leave campsite for the day....I put everything away EXCEPT a box of pink Kleenex. When we returned I was so upset that someone took the whole box of pink Kleenex and just left the empty box. Later that afternoon my DH called me to look up......There was the prettiest pink squirrels nest you would have ever seen

That's what I like about the hard cover tonneau cover I use while towing. You cannot lift the cover high enough to mess with the hitch latch which is also padlocked, you can't even unhook the break away cable.

Yep, happens at work too.

We were boondocking in southern Utah a few weeks ago and someone actually came to our campsite and stole our firewood. Nothing else. Wow!

Either way, I am suspicious in both directions, theft and stupidity

I did that with the helper tool for the bars--left it on the bumper. Had to buy another one.

I have found cargo pants to be an excellent memory aid when assembling and disassembling all sorts of stuff around the campsite.

If you put it in your big pockets, it will still be there reminding you to properly put it away.

Stolen, 20 year old Trek bicycle

After 6 years of seasonal camping at Steamboat Bend on the Ohio River we experienced our first loss this year, a 20 year old Trek bicycle that my DW rides.

The weird part is that the thief left a new Polaris off road bicycle right behind it. We keep both bikes under our fiver overhang to stay out of the weather and have never locked them up.

So now our bicycles, golf cart and power regulator are firmly locked up with bicycle anti-theft cables. While these cables can be defeated they deter the casual thief who is looking for easy pickings.

We get a lot of "drive through looky loo's" at our campground, especially on weekends but rarely after dark. In our case since it was so early in the season none of our neighbors were in residence so the bike presented an easy opportunity. A real shame that our world has come to this type of behavior, especially in a campground.
