My grill, stove, chairs, tables, etc have always been outside, available for use, or for the taking.....since 1965. Never happened. And I dont wonder why.

Lock up your stuff when away and camp where you feel safe...just common sense.

Maybe I'm just a bit too independent, but I make my plans and do as I want. If someone wants to join me, I enjoy that. If that person or group suddenly wants to start changing things and planning my trip for me, that's where we generally part company... but not where we cease to be friends. Lots of folks are insecure about traveling and being among strangers. I can understand that. My friends understand that I am not. Do I lock my stuff up? Yes, and even still I've been ripped off before. I probably will be ripped off again, but I'm not going to make it easy for them.

We alternate our stays, 3 or 4 days in a State, County or Federal park, then a day or two at something like a KOA... dump at the full hook-up, refill fresh water, use the pool, do some laundry, and it's off to start the cycle again.

Come to think of it, if we ever were to stay at a resort type "snobground", I probably would lock everything up. Probably couldn't trust them there....

Interestingly, the only thing that I ever had stolen, was the last wine cooler out of my ice chest... and the next day while I was hiking, it was replaced by a similar product. I've always wondered what that was all about.

We have found more "real" people in the riff raff parks than the higher end. They seem to be more willing to say hello, how are you without looking at what brand, length or color of coach you are driving.

We lock our doors and compartments at night. We do the same thing with the S&B.

As far as state parks, I guess it depends on the state. Most of our state parks here are resorts compared to the privates. If we can't get in a State, we settle for a private. The gambling windfall money was directed to the state parks, and they did a nice job.

I'm part of the group that locks the doors. We tend to stay in less expensive places and have never had a problem. Wouldn't mind trying some of those fancy resorts but most are above my means. As far as if those folks are snobs or not, you'd know better than us, you have met them, we haven't.

We usually camp in Flortida State parks and have never had any problems. We don't lock the basement doors at camp as most anything of value like Bbq, chairs, kayak and bicycles are out and at the ready to use. I do lock them for travel not wanting an accidental opening. What we do lock is the main door at night and when away. People and dogs can't be replaced, everything else can.

We all have our own comfort levels and for different reasons. If they are truly your friends, accept them for who they are.
