I've Been Robbed!

I always thought my things were pretty safe at my campsites, but I was proven wrong today.

This evening I decided to take a little drive to burn the soot out of my Dodge. I left about 6:30, got back at 8:00. I walked around the back end of my trailer and something looked strange.

That's when I realized my two red plastic 5 gallon gas containers were missing! I'm guessing it was one of the 4 wheelers that are always driving by the campsite. There's a 4wd trail on the rock above and behind my campsite, and I realize now they could see the gas cans from there.

It's kind of sad. Oh well. One of the containers was about empty. And what goes around comes around. Maybe the jerk will roll over the edge of a cliff... :hihi:

I also believe in Karma as well. Like the guy who purposely opens the car door to nail a kid on a peddle bike.

And, Karma nails him instead. re:

If he (kid trying to hit the bicyclist) did not spit out a chicklet or two I would be surprised...

It would really make me mad if someone stole anything from my campsite, especially if it were fuel that I had planned to use.

I've decided that I'm not going to worry too much about stuff being stolen. Most of us (I think) regardless of how long we've been camping have never had much problem with theft, but it does happen. For me, my thought process is that I can spend time locking up stuff, or I can enjoy being outside. I've just accepted that anything I leave outside may disappear some day, and that's a price I'm willing to pay. Not that theft would not tick me off.

As a person who goes 4 wheeling, this makes me mad. When we take my wrangler out on the trail we respect others stuff. Sorry they got you man.

Yeah - unfortunately leaving those gas cans out now is like leaving $25 lying on the ground....too tempting for some idiot to come by and take it.

If it were me (being the dubious person I am), I would put one gallon of gas in the can (for smell) and then 4 gallons of water and leave it right back out there for them.
